Tucker Carlson made some very interesting points in his keynote speech at the Heritage Foundation 50th Anniversary Gala as seen in the 1st video at the bottom of this story. These take on special meaning now that the people who only pretend to be liberal, in favor of progress and democracy, are celebrating the diminishment of liberty, progress, and rule by the people.

It’s becoming ironically obvious that as things become more confused, they are settling themselves out in an even starker contrast. This was something that Mr. Carlson pointed out in his keynote speech, delivered after his last Fox News show.
If you want to know what’s evil and what’s good, what are the characteristics of those?
And by the way, I think the Athenians would’ve agreed with this. This is not necessarily just a Christian notion, this is kind of a, I would say, widely agreed-upon understanding of good and evil. What are its products? What do these two conditions produce?
Well, I mean, good is characterized by order, calmness, tranquility, peace, whatever you want to call it, lack of conflict, cleanliness. Cleanliness is next to godliness. It’s true. It is.
And evil is characterized by their opposites. Violence, hate, disorder, division, disorganization, and filth. So, if you are all in on the things that produce the latter basket of outcomes, what you’re really advocating for is evil. That’s just true. I’m not calling for religious war. Far from it. I’m merely calling for an acknowledgement of what we’re watching, which is not one …
They don’t want a debate. Those ideas won’t produce outcomes that any rational person would want under any circumstances. Those are manifestations of some larger force acting upon us. It’s just so obvious. It’s completely obvious.
And I think two things: One, we should say that and stop engaging in these totally fraudulent debates, where we are using the terms that we used in 1991 when I started at [The Heritage Foundation], as if maybe I could just win the debate if I marshaled more facts.
I’ve tried. That doesn’t work. And two, maybe we should all take just 10 minutes a day to say a prayer about it. I’m serious. Why not?
And I’m saying that to you not as some kind of evangelist, I’m literally saying that to you as an Episcopalian, the Samaritans of our time. I’m coming to you from the most humble and lowly theological position you can. I’m literally an Episcopalian. And even I have concluded it might be worth taking just 10 minutes out of your busy schedule to say a prayer for the future, and I hope you will.
It becomes even more interesting if you extrapolate his remarks and look at how this applies across the board. There is a strange dichotomy that applies to the two major sides of the political divide.
Building up/Burning down
Civil Rights/Cancel Culture
Individual control/Centralized control
Limited government/Unlimited government
Strangely enough, if you look at the various aspects of our society concerning the two sides of the political divide, you’ll see that there is an unmistakable contrast between the two that is growing by the day. Try it yourself, the list almost seems endless.
Consider any aspect of the pro-freedom right and its contrast with the anti-liberty left, and you’ll see a positive value in one and a negative in the other.
As Mr. Carlson referred to in his speech, the ideas of one side of the political divide won’t produce outcomes that any rational person would want under any circumstances. They are the obvious manifestations of a larger force acting on our society and the world at large.
