Thinking about what, if I were on the left, I’d do with this trio of beliefs:
1. I know Trump is now in charge of the government.
2. And I believe Trump is basically Hitler.
3. Yet I favor gun control — I want the government to take everyone’s guns away.
Something’s gotta give. But what?
The left is far from monolithic, and their commitments to 2 and 3 come in degrees. So does one soften one’s rhetoric on 2 to maintain one’s advocacy of 3? Or back away from 3 because one believes 2 identifies the greater threat?
