Year Zero

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Are there now three Americas? One of white guilt and penance, one of black anger and victimization, and another seething in silence as they see their 244 years of history written off as something worse than the pasts of Somalia, Peru, Iran, or Serbia. There are now two realities — beyond two national anthems, beyond black and white dorms, black and white segregated safe spaces on campus, and beyond now segregated black and white history, language, philosophy, and science and math. The counterrevolution will be easy to spot. If sowing the wind has been getting ugly, reaping the whirlwind will be more so.
