Progressives believe in “science,” but only insofar as they define it. Theirs is the “science” of make-believe. To them, global warming is a proven fact, and the existence of God has been disproven. In both cases, the “science” is settled.
Yet, incredibly, they then claim that absolute truth is unknowable. (Absolute hypocrisy is not).
Even dismissing the rapid rise of artificial intelligence and the near ubiquity of “virtual reality,” Western leftists in the media, academia, government, and giant Silicon Valley tech corporations have been so successful in indoctrinating people in leftist dogma that it is likely we will delude ourselves out of existence in the near future.
Diverse societies have more problems and civil unrest than homogeneous ones. Sorry, but that is an inarguable fact, progressives. This is why, for example, Japan is a relative bastion of safety in a tumultuous world. The only long-time exception to this fact had been the United States. But, upon closer examination, one finds that the U.S., while quite diverse in terms of ethnicity and skin color, was extremely homogeneous in terms of its citizen’s core beliefs and values. E Plurubus Unum. Out of many…one. ONE.
A near universal belief in limited government, of, by, and for the people. A belief in the Judeo-Christian work ethic, free markets, federalism, republicanism, the rule of law, and, most importantly, natural law. That shared value system made the nation utterly unique in the annals of history, and her citizens, as well. All Americans—or prospective Americans-- wanted and expected was a chance to better themselves, unshackled from arbitrary government coercion.
When these tenets are no longer shared, but mocked, the fabric of that society necessarily breaks down. Leftists will never stop pushing and prodding. Therefore, if conservatives keep acceding or backing down, the country will soon bear no resemblance to its former self. If they don’t, it may not hold together much longer. And, tragically, almost unspeakably, it would be better broken up than to live on as a bastion of entitled, politically-correct morons (and spineless traditionalists) whose motto is, “Out of one, many. And, by-the-way, you’re all encouraged to use the same bathroom at the same time.”
I, for one, will not—cannot—live with the ever-tolerant would-be totalitarians who wish to imprison my body, mind and soul because of my deeply-held beliefs.
