Political distractions are like barrels in Donkey Kong

In the video game Donkey Kong,  Mario’s goal is to save Pauline, the damsel in distress. She has been abducted by Donkey Kong. Mario must ascend a series of girder beams and ladders to reach her. In the mean time, Donkey Kong is rolling barrels into Mario’s path. The rescuing of Pauline is constantly interrupted by the barrels.

If Pauline were the United States, and Donkey Kong were a globalist organization, the barrels would be all the social issues that must be dealt with before freedom can be secured. Social issues keep people fighting needlessly while the real enemy stays off in the distance, untouched.
