Unlike John, I don’t consider it worthy of mention that the National Review is calling for a revolution. The right always wants a violent restoration of some kind. Maybe I’d even say I think that’s their prerogative.
But I am continually surprised by how clumsy contemporary conservative coinages have become:
They reject the American republic of God-fearing individuals in favor of the European ideal, which has only been government by aristocracy: either an aristocracy of birth or, nowadays, of ruling know-it-alls — of post-religious, globalist intellectuals (a.k.a. PORGIs).
Strapping young bucks, welfare queens driving Cadillacs, big gubmint bureaucrats taking away your guns and treasures…these are all things that viscerally scare some proportion of the population. PORGIs…not so much.
American conservatism is successful when it creates myths that voters can grasp. They’ve got to be simple. You can’t use words like “post-anything” or even “globalist” and expect to get a lot play on Top 40 radio, let alone create a silly acronym out of such words.
