Beck is creating positive themes of unity and patriotism and freedom and independence which are above mere political or policy choices, but not irrelevant to them. Political and policy choices rest on a foundation of philosophy, culture, self-image, ideals, religion. Change the foundation, and the rest will flow from that. Defeat the enemy on that plane, and any merely tactical defeat will always be reversible.And The Left / Mainstream Media, while they won't acknowledge it, know very well what is going on here. They are, to say the least, shit-scared. The Ruling Class cannot conceive of the ordinary working Joe or Jane turning to anyone other than them as their one true savior. The success of Beck's rally, and the success of its message, doesn't fit in any of their progressivist, state-centered formulas. Why else are they planning their own rally on the Mall on 2 October, just one month before the election?
