Tucker Carlson: When Political Debates Go Wrong
We have a major problem in this country. We are not one country, but two. That is not the way things are supposed to be, and historically speaking, it is all but the sure antecedent of a civil war.
How did things get this way? Well, there are two views of history; the accidental view and the conspiratorial view. In the accidental view, famines, wars, revolutions, and the like are all the natural consequence of cultural development. The accidental view holds it true that there are no conspiring powers looking to drive world events to benefit a person, a group, or a philosophy. The accidental view supposes secrets cannot be kept, that there is no ancient knowledge hidden from the masses and that conventional wisdom is cutting edge.
If you believe conventional wisdom is cutting edge, learning seems silly, science becomes a rote industrial endeavor, and religion becomes a pastime.
Conversely, the conspiratorial view considers the possibility that our leaders are not entirely on the level with us. It supposes that powerful people do sometimes work together to achieve aims that the rest of us would neither approve of or benefit from.
What we have in this country is a bipartisan political culture where each side takes the conspiratorial view of the other and the accidental view of itself. The result is an irreconcilable difference. We see it every night on the news and the fake news.
Here’s Fox News with Tucker Carlson on the breakdown in the public discourse.
