The Beginning of the End of Progressive Domination?
The overreach of the Left’s response to Trump's victory -- and its consequences.
This superbly written article gives a trenchant analysis of why it ought to be the beginning of the end, but is unlikely to be:
“Rather than learning the tragic self-knowledge that Aristotle says compensates the victim of nemesis, the left overreached yet again with its outlandish, hysterical tantrums over Trump’s victory. The result has been a stark exposure of the left’s incoherence and hypocrisy so graphic and preposterous that they can no longer be ignored.’
Nonetheless, he notes why a signal victory is most unlikely: the culture remains wholly unreformed, and cultures are more important than the results of elections:
“The lefts’ demolition of the American social and political order has reached deep into our schools, popular culture, and political policies. There are 66 million Millennials, the worst-educated cohort in American history, steeped in the progressive world-view since kindergarten.
More ominous, the progressive redistributionist entitlement state and the habits of dependence it fosters are unlikely to be reformed, even as the increasing debt to finance this “kinder, gentler” Leviathan continues to drive us toward bankruptcy.”
