If history teaches us anything, it’s that homogenous groups inevitably self-destruct. That reality applies to the success of Asheville’s liberal majority in championing a conforming City Council — a triumph likely to be repeated in the upcoming election. So much for a feigned interest in diversity.
Power has always been the left’s more authentic mission. Time will thus find Asheville losing its luster under the watch of a panel of progressive eyes constricted to one comfortable angle of view.
As the adventure unfolds, a name transition from Mountain “X” to Mountain “L” might be appropriate. Your publication remains admirably consistent in providing weekly pabulum to habituated liberal mascots. An edgy source of information and entertainment has thus morphed into a lollipop. A conservative thinker, being a student of reality, might point out that even the best flavors grow stale with time.
