“History and mythology are replete with examples of how so-called losers change the world. ‘The blood of martyrs is the seed of the church,’ according to the second and third-century theologian, Tertullian. ‘If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine,’ said Obi-Wan Kenobi, in the first Star Wars movie. A more recent, if less noble, example: When it comes to taking over the Republican Party, QAnon is winning by losing. According to The New York Times, at least, even though Q candidates are losing most of their elections, their ideas are gaining currency.” (07/26/22)
