Victor Davis Hanson, @VDHanson; Hoover, and NRO ; in re: The Cancel culture as part f th woke culture. Self-destruction occurred in Rome-—Philip and Alexander were much less of a threat than the Persians had been a century earlier—. France caved in to the Nazis in six weeks despite having a superior military, more tanks. . . . Destroying and rewriting our past is almost a comic-book version of Orwell. . . . In Oaxaca, inter al., is a pre-Columbian society; also, Peru, or Bolivian jungles. It's the upper middle class that enjoys this agita, raises hell, then goes to get a latte. The Bolsheviks were a tiny number of people; created a putsch in a turbulent time. Media, Hollywood, entertainment industry: all exaggerate the number of people involved in tearing-down. There were few Jacobins or Salem witches; but these created a reign of terror. These people have zero agenda other than chaos.
