The great but not powerful Mencius Moldbug makes what strikes me as a salutory suggestion:
"Sometimes I wonder if the Republicans could man it up and propose a Great Compromise with the Moloch of progressive America. We'd call it a compromise - but I'm really thinking more of a surrender. The compromise (a consent decree, even?) would run as follows:
"We, the undersigned Republicans, admit that we are foul kulak racists and deserve only to lose. We shall therefore crawl back into our holes and cling bitterly to our guns, etc. We henceforth dissolve the Republican Party and all its organs, especially Fox News. All future elections will be won by the Democrats, who are winners and golden in the light of Allah. May they enjoy eternal diversity.
"We, the undersigned Democrats, accept with a heavy conscience the burden of world domination. We agree to admit that we are the ruling party in a one-party state which controls the entire freakin' planet. We promise that we will never whine that we're being oppressed when some stupid worthless kulak thinks he can fight back, which he can't, for five minutes."
Works for me. So far as I can tell, the sole purpose of Republicans, these days, is to provide the American left with a feeble excuse for pretending that they still face meaningful opposition.
