Tipping Point for the NRA

About creativeconflictwisdom

I spent 32 years in a Fortune Five company working on conflict: organizational, labor relations and senior management. I have consulted in a dozen different business sectors and the US Military. I work with a local environmental non profit. I have written a book on the neuroscience of conflict, and its implications for conflict handling called Creative Conflict Wisdom (forthcoming).

    NRA is just one piece of a larger cultural grouping in America that is politically reactionary. Others are the economically desperate and uneducated, anti-government libertarians, various christian fundamentalists, and corporatists. When they overcome their differences, an unholy alliance is formed. Like the Republican party increasingly from Reagan forward.

    • @louploup2. Quite so but actually a lot of the NRA membership is not part of this. I know hunters who get global warming, have no time for assault rifles and actually want good gun safety, training and controls. We’ll see what the balance of forces inside the NRA is between these and the insurrectionists in the next few months. Here’s hoping….The paradox of the unholy alliance you outline is that by dividing America, it is actually supporting China, so in one of those paradoxes of unintended consequences, they are destroying what they believe in.
