Halloween is a lead-in to All Souls’ Day. Will the “soul” of the American Idea be one we lament in the future? Will 2021 be the year that future historians will cite as the Republic’s death? Halloween may be a scary day but 2021 may mark the beginning of a scary era for this country. The rise of authoritarianism, inflation, collectivism and shortages should scare the average American, and if the left has its way, will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. It’s not too late to turn back, but will we? Tuesday, Nov 2nd is All Souls Day. It is also Election Day. How we celebrate one may affect how we celebrate the other.
