The Full Alexandria

Maybe you’ve seen The Full Monty, or at least heard of it. It’s a bit dated in this age of gender non-conformity.  Hence a variant I imagine as The Full Alexandria, in which players of unrestricted “expression” take part in a theatrical festival of inclusiveness.

For purposes here, expression includes not only matters of gender, but more to the point, ideology.  Alexandria refers to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the reigning femme fatale of the solidly mainstream extreme left.

For a hardcore, lifelong conservative like myself, the mere mention of socialism, or it’s drag persona—social democracy—is enough to send me to the bunker with a small batch bourbon. The celebration in recent years of Bernie Sanders, followed more recently by Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, Kirsten Gillibrand, Andrew Gillum, and innumerable others is a movie made in hell. Add hordes of gullible, supposedly well-educated millennials, and the nation seems on a collision course of voluntary self-destruction.

Yet as the winds of change continue blowing in my face, ably reported and abetted by the usual suspects, the widespread fascination of pre-senility adults and our newest generations with certifiably destructive ideology gave me pause. Could millions of newly minted voters be so wrong, and so easily led astray by those who’ve been around long enough to know better?

So I paused, if only for the mental exercise. This called for cognitive contortions with which I was unfamiliar, but I persevered to arrive at some approximation of coherent analysis. Herewith, as a result, a random list of the benefits and advantages obvious to clear thinkers, even if the leading advocates of the socialist dream have yet to identify and promote them.

Wow….I’m pooped after thinking about this all. Perhaps you can come up with your own list of benefits that will accrue, and post them here in comments or subsequent submissions. You might also want to keep an eye on the supply of toilet paper at your local grocery store; it will likely become the leading indicator of the transition in our governance.

All hail the Utopian States of America, and its beloved Founding Dreamers!
