My attention to detail is somewhat stunted.I’m case anyone hasn’t read it, Brave New World may be the one book as illuminating of our current ills as Orwell’s 1984, and is available, in its entirety, for free here:
It’s a quick read.
I have come to the conclusion that those leaning left cannot be reeled in by reason.If someone wanted an effective tactic to stop the rot, as you previously put it, they’d find a way to give every attendee of that seminar a copy of BNW.
Only the dimmest in that seminar (which, let’s be honest with ourselves, they did make time to attend that) could come away from that reading not realizing exactly what they were being set up for.
From @GunMonkeyIntl 's book..Basically, anything GOOD the left is against it;
God, theyre against it
the family, they're against it
hardwork/prosperity/wealth, they're against it
Freedom of speech, they're against it
sports, they're against it
fitness [ which is now "body shaming" ]
You name it, pick anything good, they hate it. Really its funny when you think about it. What it seems to come down to is that they hate life and the whole world.
You missed my meaning, or I missed yoursSure they do. They just make it out as something else.
Sort of like traditional marriage.
They seem to have shed their proletariat v. bourgeois schtick. Don't you think they have become a little more circumspect? They now seem to use race and gender (identity politics) as their protagonist. Or, are they using globalism v. nationalism?Marxists are only doing precisely what they’ve spent the last 100 years telling us they’d do.
This is a stunt that rightwing radio talk show hosts use to make their knee jerk listeners vibrate. They find some obscure individual who is on the fringe, try to associate the individual with all liberals and then pound it. These radio hosts are adept at pounding issues that anger their listeners.
Why do they want to engender anger in their listeners? Anger generates adrenaline. Adrenaline is addictive. So the knee jerks keeping tuning in to get their anger induced adrenaline fix.
