The commentary on the recent “road trip” in America is really good. The commentary includes links to the base report, which I recommend heartily.
The liberals in this case really tried to figure out what “flyover” country was really like. Amazing that they tried. They just couldn’t come to the right conclusions, but I’d guess that they aren’t capable of that recognition.
The struggle for the liberals for the past two generations has been over diversity. They still believe that differences can only be ok if we all embrace the same things. They can’t fathom that being different is ok.
I believe it’s because they don’t understand America, what it stands for and in some ways really hate it.
When everyone saw being an American was the unifier, things worked out well. In the absence of a unifying concept, we have a society today that probably can’t be called a society. Overall, America has nothing in common. In flyover country, we still love America and aren’t bothered by differences. Read more here.
