1871: Less Crazy than It Sounds

(Staff Writer) Rest assured that I don’t expect anyone who isn’t already familiar with this sort of thing to believe it in any way, shape or form. And at this point, you shouldn’t. I highly recommend not taking any of this seriously at the moment, but simply adding it to your general knowledge base in much the same way as you happen to be familiar with The Lord of the Rings or Watership Down. Think of it as a metaphor, or, if you prefer, a palindrome. But in light of all of the post-election anomalies, it might serve you well as a useful conceptual reference point for interpreting events in the future that you happen to find inexplicable.
