You can get something from new representatives about the truth, even a Republican from Nebraska. On the first day of the Judge Kavanaugh hearing, Sen. Ben Sasse made a strong, almost non-partisan point. He says Congress must stop pushing its power to the executive branch to avoid taking responsibility and promote reelection. He stopped short of calling it cowardice, just saying that was no way to live your life. He warned that this practice is leading to a politicized Supreme Court. He sees this as a failure of congressional representatives’ duty and begged his colleagues to keep politics in Congress and leave the Supreme Court alone.
“The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”George Orwell
Authoritarian control is a pattern that repeats, from Rome’s bread and circus to today’s popcorn and Netflix. Subtlety is the only difference. The interest in lowering education, limiting cultural exchange, and individual expression is that pattern across the modern spectrum.
