Suffused with truths and takes on history, this welcome essay brings focus on - and reasons to explore - narratives about struggles near and far. While the practice of "divide and conquer" goes back further than Sun Tzu, MAGA's attack on democracy's promise leverages the American Confederacy's invocation of an Almighty to rationalize "knowing one's place" in society. That's because the Sedition Caucus is the still-whipcracking tail of the lazy, good- for-nothing rat of enslavement on whose back this economy was seed-funded. As we did through the late 1800's and later, we'll defeat that hypocritical deist vermin again. And then will be when the real work begins.
