It’s no secret that the country is not headed in a positive direction. We seem to have more division, tension, and corruption now than ever before.
Nobody is more keenly aware of this than Tucker Carlson, but last weekend, he had some advice for how we can change the trajectory of the nation.
“The two things you need to do are organize and speak with total honesty, clarity, and aggression,” he said.
“Neither one of those things is easy,” he acknowledged. “Complaining is easy, watching television is easy, eating with people you agree with and grousing is really easy.”
“But none of those things change the outcome. You need to act, you need to speak, and you need to organize,” he continued, “and before you can do either one of those, you need to recognize the consequences, the stakes.”
You may lose some friends, experience rejection, or be demonized, but what’s the cost if you fail to act and speak?
Tucker clarifies that this isn’t about “people doing things you disagree with.”
It’s actually much, much bigger than that.
“It’s about the most fundamental question of all, which is can you have children? Will they live in a world where they can afford to get married themselves and have children? And will those children live where you lived?” he asked the audience.
“Will the world that produced you continue to exist?”
Such a harrowing question, but one we must contend with given that our country is at a breaking point.
“The answer is no,” he said. “With bad leadership, it won’t; everything is at stake.”
“Fight for the right things, guys,” says Dave Rubin. “That’s the point.”
