Our country is in decline — and NeverTrump doesn’t get it.

Don’t you get it, the NeverTrump people ask us? Yes we do. We’re not happy about it, and we’d like to think things like that would never happen. We like it when Trump reverses himself, as he often does.

But what about you, we ask them. Our country is in decline. Don’t you get it? Or are you simply too comfortable with the way things are? I once gave a talk to a group of conservatives about the rise of an American aristocracy, and a D.C. insider from the audience thought to correct me. Yes, he said, we’re going to Hell in a hand-basket, but this time we’ve got a lot of great little magazines and think tanks on our side. However bad it might be for the country, I’ve got mine!
