True or False: As progressivism collapses as an ideology due to 100 years of clear proof that the end game leads to misery, the left is required to turn their "ideas" into a secular religion like the Jacobins. Without the ability to persuade, they turn to the forces of shame, guilt, and use social proof to nudge behavior. To them, a racist isn't a person that discriminates. It means a heretic. A "racist" no longer has a right to participate in society. They must be stripped of the right to eat at restaurants, own businesses, have a public voice, have the right to join the dating pool, they have no rights, and it is permissible to do anything to them physically or verbally. "Racists" are no longer human beings. 
Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken

Progressivism isn't a thing that collapses; it's a living organism that adapts to its environment on one level, and bends its environment to suit its own wellbeing on another. Any time it fucks something up real good and hard, it can now point its finger at the power/oppression dialectic.

I can’t decide if it’s true or false, or if that’s a logical question. Progressive seems positive, not much good comes from regressive. In the mouths and hands of politicians, it’s anyone’s guess what the word even means. Interesting to view it as a living organism noun instead of adjective or adverb. Nice, the language stretches to accommodate communication.

I've been trying for a while now to wrap my head around the state of current affairs, and it's taking me all over the danged "humanities." That sort of construct on my part is about the only way I can explain some of the new concepts I'm running into in a comprehensible manner. I've been reduced to almost making up characters to represent concepts. If this way of thinking works out, I may be ably to have them "interact" with one another like they have over time to move from say Socratis to "WTF?"



My head hurts.

LOL A doctor once told me, If it hurts, don’t do it. I was really upset with him, but over the years since I was 19 it’s been proven fairly sage advice. My jaw still hurts when I absently shift it.
