Today’s fresh-from-the-oven Substack post is now up: We have not yet begun to fight, a discussion of Final Battles, whether or not they’re upon us, and whether or not we’re ready for ‘em. Excerpt:
A fearful adversary, uncertain of his ability to prevail, is tentative, reticent, even outright reluctant to engage his foe. His timidity is written plain to see in his every plan, his every maneuver. The enemy Real Americans now confront evidences not a single trace of those qualities, either in his behavior or his rhetoric. This enemy has to date been given no reason for caution or reticence; his time is spent not thinking about what his opponent might do to him, but of what he might do to his opponent, a mindset Union GEN US Grant once famously urged his own officers to adopt.
Our present-day Enemy’s confidence may yet turn out to be overconfidence, a consummation devoutly to be wished by all freedom-loving people everywhere. But today is not that day. If we indeed stand upon the threshold of the Final Battle in the long struggle against tyranny, as Downey holds, then we’d better all turn our thinking around and get ourselves ready for it, and that right soon —before it’s too late.
