The moral crisis is when we must choose what is right but can’t, yet we must. When both choices have equal arguments and emotional power, and Truth or the One is divided against itself. Truth Is One…Reality is not two unless you are a schizophrenic. So to avoid the psychosis of a split mind we have to choose…but how can we here? The mystery play leaves us without knowing Who Did It? Yet we have to know who did it?
So this is America’s moral crisis because we have to choose who did it. Judge Kav represent male privilege and the power of the Republican Party. He confessed to that in the hearing. So the choice, especially for Republicans, is between heart felt empathy for Dr. Ford or party loyalty to Judge Kav.
The pain of Dr. Ford was of a vulnerable heart that had been wounded. The pain of Judge Kav was the pain of a career and a well crafted public persona being exposed. There was no pain of being exposed for Dr. Ford. But there was rage by Judge Kav, belligerent anger at those he blamed for his crisis, the Democrats.
Passion sells TV, passion gets ratings, and yesterday we had passion versus reason, tribalism versus individual judgment. Now we have this giant hair ball stuck in our throat. Who is lying?
The partisan tribalism, especially that rose to a lion roar on the right in the second half of the hearting is Trump’s playbook: blame the Democrats. While everyone focuses on the “evil” Democrats, the fact of Dr. Ford is forgotten. Where is Mark Judge?….(The irony of the name is not lost). The Mark on the Judge. The eye witness who was not called. What is Kav hiding? What is he afraid of? That was obvious.
Whether the Dems plotted this late revelation or not, that doesn’t mean that Dr. Ford’s revelation is not an exposer of Judge Kav’s dark side. That’s what this is about. Does Judge Kav have a Dark Side that he is deathly afraid of being exposed? Was that what he was no terrified and angry about?
Kav most definitely revealed himself as a Partisan Operative when he called out the Left Wing Conspiracy that this was because the Democrats were angry about him, 2016, losing the election and revenge for the Clintons. Trump’s Democratic hit job, evil…evil…
KAV is a Right Side Warrior. He rose to power as a political operative for Star digging up dirt on the Clintons. He barely got confirmed for the circuit court for his partisan bias, and now it came out in full force.
I cannot help but connect the dots to Cosby, who went to jail the other day because he believed he was a Right Side Warrior, a moral light for black people, and America’s Dad. Cosby had a hidden dark side and he never confessed, held his con to the jail cell.
In the larger picture—the context of the MeToo movement and women marching, becoming political, and saying they aren’t going to take it anymore—America is going through the labor of birth and death, the death of Republican Patriarchy and the birth of Democratic matriarchy. These are reality paradigms or World Ideas that like a fish bowl shape the culture we swim in.
When we swim in a culture, it is almost impossible to see the unconscious World Idea that shapes it. In the rear view mirror of history we can see the World Idea, like when we see movies of the 50s. I’m thinking of the Shape of Water and Mudbound, which I just saw. The Cold War is still shaping our culture, only the war has become between states of mind, the tribal shape of the Right and the Left. Just as WWI was locked in trench war, America has been gridlocked for 48 years (using 1970 as a beginning) in a pendulum swinging back and forth of He Said, She Said.
I see this coming to an end with a new generation coming into voting power who were born in a different World Idea created by the internet. They are bored with the Cold War of dueling value positions. They want practical results, not ideological goals. They don’t care for the soccer game of politics where rabid teams snarl and tear at each other in their love of the game they believe is real.
Judge Kav revealed himself to be a Right Side Warrior for his team against what he called the “evil” forces of the Left.
