In Hans Christian Andersen’s classic children’s tale, “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” we’ve heard a lot about an entire village cheering their naked emperor’s exquisite outfit, which didn’t exist.  But how so many people came to yield to an overt lie gets overlooked. 

Rereading the story, I found it remarkable how Andersen used fiction to capture something very real in stubborn human nature; something that’s now driving the Democrat Party as we are dumbfounded by how they are so willing to believe things that aren’t true. 

How a village became complicit in the biggest lie in the history of fairy tales began with the devilish guile of two swindlers who pretended to be weavers.  Knowing that the emperor was intoxicated with the theater of clothing more than governing, the rogue weavers told him that they could weave “the most exquisite stuff imaginable” with “colors and patterns uncommonly beautiful.”
“A society does not ever die ‘from natural causes’, but always dies from suicide or murder – and nearly always from the former….”
