It's easy to get caught up in the minutiae of political campaigns, but I always keep my eye on the big picture. We're engaged in a very deep, protracted cultural war, the nature of which I've touched on here
, among other places. Politics is one
battlefield on which that war is being waged, even if many of the main players are only vaguely aware of the ultimate significance of their own roles in the drama.
Leaders come and go. Political parties come and go. Even nations come and go. The broader civilizational struggle remains what it is.
