Maybe what bothers me the most is how much he has done this without much pushback from anyone. Some news outlets are doing stories on what he is doing, but I would love to see more done by major news outlets like the Wall Street journal or Marketplace doing frontpage stories. There seem to be few protests on social media as well. What’s happening at Sears isn’t simply the marketplace playing out, but it’s about the intentional dismantling of a company.
There is something dangerous in seeing someone from another political party as not simply being wrong or having a differing view of government, but as some threat to all that is good in society. You can’t really have a functioning democracy if you view those who have different views as if they were an invading army. In fact this isn’t the talk of a democracy, it’s the talk of war.
The third version of Eastern has done very little to promote itself. Most of the news we have heard came from filings to the Department of Transportation. There has been no press releases, no social media, nothing save the title card on the easternairlines.aero website that has the logo with the words, coming soon.
I know, I know: third parties never succeed. That’s not the point. The point is if there is to be a healthy conservative movement in the United States, there needs to be a space that is not tainted by Donald Trump and what appears to be a white nationalist platform topped off by a cult of personality.
It’s been nearly 10 years since I was diagnosed with Aspergers or High Functioning Autism. When I got the diagnosis, I was relieved. It was something I could hang all of the difficulties I faced as an adult in relationships and employment. I was hoping that I could explain to my employers what was happening with me and that they would understand.
