Scott Rasmussen’s Heroic Battle With Tyrannophilia Rex, The Love Of Dictatorship

Rasmussen saves the best for last.
Call it Tyrannophilia.
The digital revolution kicked off what I call the Great Turnaround: “For two centuries leading up to the 1970s, the trend was for everything in America to get bigger, more centralized, and more homogenized.” “After the ‘70s, however, cultural trends moved in the opposite direction with everything becoming more niche-oriented, decentralized and personalized.” Rasmussen, an optimist, is quite sure republicanism will win out.
Meanwhile, his precocious admirer, Hillary Rodham, in writing a brilliant honors thesis on Alinsky concluded therein that to bring social justice at scale you had to work within the political system.
However, it also appears neither of them materially succeeded in their goals of durably advancing social justice through use of high office and central power.
The "power of community" without the resources to go to scale is insufficient.
National scale community, or, better yet, civic engagement might succeed.
Rasmussen does strike gold in addressing how technological innovation is a crucial piece of making America great again.
Today the typical car is actually in use only about 5 percent of the time.
Rasmussen is in the top 1% of public intellectuals at work today.
