Does Donald Trump have a plan when he does absurd things like refuse to entertain the prospect of a peaceful transition of power if he was to lose the election? Of course, he doesn’t. But that doesn’t make it any less contemptuous. Also, the indictment of a Kentucky police officer in connection with the death of Breonna Taylor, cosmic injustice, and our culture’s inability to handle moral ambiguity.

    I’m sorry, what?! For several weeks now, the Democrats have been saying they won’t accept the election results. Their own “wargames” involve calling on people to take to the streets if the President wins re-election. The Democrats still haven’t accepted the 2016 election. But yeah, the problem is President Trump.

    Christine Rosen just tosses these perfect words off during the Commentary podcast. It’s the best daily podcast In the world.

    “Well, a secular society has no way of processing that without falling into that kind of Manichaian good versus evil. Because that used to be the role of faith. Faith was a way for human beings to try to understand the meaning of tragedy. There’s entire theologies built around answering this question of why does God allow bad things to happen.”
