Every High Civilization Decays by Forgetting Obvious Things

 

Lesbian soccer star Megan Rapinoe attempting, unsuccessfully, to sell lingerie to women.

Victoria’s Secret just lost millions of dollars because they forgot that women like to look pretty.  This may seem like an obvious point to many, but the leaders of one of the world’s leading companies in the industry of ‘making women look pretty’ apparently forgot this timeless truth.  They were reminded of this obvious point when they lost millions of dollars, and have changed their focus from virtue signaling back to making women look pretty.

Budweiser just lost millions of dollars because they forgot that blue-collar men like beer, pretty women, and America.  These may seem like obvious points to many, but the leaders of one of the world’s leading companies in this industry apparently forgot this timeless truth.  They were reminded of this obvious point when they lost millions of dollars, and have since changed their focus from virtue signaling back to selling beer to men who like beer, pretty women, and America.

Our military is having trouble recruiting because they forgot that men who love America are eager to defend her, but over-educated trans-gendered abortion-seeking drag queen atheist urbanites tend to interested in other things.  When our military made it clear that conservatives and others who love America – those who are willing to kill or die for America – are no longer welcome in today’s military, it began having serious problems with recruiting.  We’ll see if the leaders of our military are reminded of this timeless truth in time.

The world is going crazy.  North Korea, Afghanistan, Ukraine, China, Iran, Russia, Israel, and many other countries have noted the sudden instability created by America’s apparent inability to recall that without a strong military, it doesn’t matter how many drag queens get government-funded abortions in their home state.

The leadership of Victoria’s Secret and Budweiser recognized their mistakes, and are attempting to correct them.  The recovery of those companies is far from certain.

Will the leadership of America recognize their mistakes in time to correct them?  Will America be able to recover from the insanity of the past 5-10 years?  That is far from certain.

Some mistakes, you don’t get to make twice.

    Part of the foolishness is the current education system teaches everything all of the old wisdom is from “old dead white males” and not worth learning, thus, we have to re-learn what our ancestors knew. 

    NOTE: They never call Marx a dead white male
