Preparing Me For Home

"There is a phenomenon here in the Northeast," begins Gavin McInnes of Taki's Magizine, "where being conservative—no, wait, being not left—is to turn everyone in the room into Donald Sutherland from Invasion of the Body Snatchers, screaming and pointing at you" — An Alien Pod Person in a Room Full of Leftists.

"How did we get to this point?" the author asks. "The way I remember things, the left used to be the chin-scratching, idea-weighing side where dissent was encouraged."

I will need to keep this in mind. I will be moving back to the Northeast, where most of the friends I left behind were of the Left, as was I when I left. Also, I think I will prefer their company, although I may be wrong.

The Left today isn't like the liberals were back in the day. They are dogmatic, intolerant, and they retaliate. If you are working in academia, keep your mouth shut and don't give up your pseudonym if you are going to blog.

Just some advice.

"I think I will prefer their company"

I suppose it depends on the company being compared against.

Leftists have about the same depth as an art gallery selling Jackson Pollack paintings.

What they do well is the gallery. Which is likewise why their towns are loads of fun to live in, as long as one can bring into it traditionalist Catholic company to use as it should be used.
