In Topics:   Immigration Stupidity  The Future  Zhou Bai Dien
I'm sure you've all heard the story of the mass Camp of the Saints-style invasion down there in Del Rio, Texas. VDare does the best job I know of in documenting the stupidity of America's legal and illegal immigration, and John Derbyshire always writes in a very organized and interesting fashion.
His latest column is The Del Rio TX Disaster—"Like Watching A Nation Busily Engaged In Heaping Up Its Own Funeral Pyre”. (It's on The Unz Review with over 100 comments already here.)
The ruination of this country is not something about which one can just take in one story a week or so, nothing existential, write an occasional letter to one's congressman, and note that it's something that we ought to do something "in the future" anymore. The hits are coming steadily with almost no serious pushback and no trends in any positive direction*. I had thought 5 years ago, that Donald Trump could at least get the country to stop digging in all the holes we have gotten into. As disappointed as I was after a few years, ruination was held to a steady pace we could keep up with.
Now, I would say that our ruination is accelerating. There is jerk involved too. I didn't make a typo there. "Jerk" is a physics/engineering term for a change in acceleration. It is the 3rd derivative of a position vector. The first derivative with respect to time is velocity and the 2nd is acceleration, so jerk is the change in the acceleration with respect to time. In America today, we have had a positive jerk, coinciding pretty much with the (s)election result of 2020 and the jerk that got (s)elected.
They are making it harder and harder for us to get out of this peacefully or with an intact country.
PS: I have a number of other ideas for posts in mind rather than write about something for which I point out an article with more details and better writing to begin with (compared to John Derbyshire, at the very least). I feel obligated to cover at least some timely news, even though relaying the news is not our purpose at Peak Stupidity. For example, I do want to write about that story about 4-Woke-Star General MIlley traitorously dealing directly with Chinese, as a commenter going by "What Interesting Times" suggested.. In this case, Immigration Stupidity is our biggest (general) topic key anyway, so this was warranted.
* Getting out of Afghanistan, no matter how stupidly it was accomplished, is one.
