A Mistake by My Fellow Wingnuts
Many of my fellow reactionaries will look at the left side of the political spectrum and figure they are in favor of letting every civilization develop in its own way but will make an exception for Western Civilization. After reading enough of their stuff, I disagree. They are in favor of letting every civilization develop in its own way including Western Civilization … but they believe they are the True Western Civilization and people they believe to be corporate shills are trying to hijack it.
This explains why they are convinced that the military is filled with closet leftists. This explains why they are convinced that any election they lose must have been stolen. This especially explains their belief that they represent the Wave of the Future. They can buttress that by pointing to the support of the media and academia (which are of growing importance in society) and the tendency of many immigrant groups to vote Democratic.
This also explains their opposition to any attempt to judge their version of Western Civilization by external standards, whether those standards derive from either God's commandments or from human nature.
Most leftists (except for the very worst idiotarians) are aware of the possibility that another society might be hijacked the way the “corporate shills” are trying to hijack Western Civilization. On the other hand, they are reluctant to ally with our “corporate shills” for very long.
