Here's why the tide has finally turned in the culture war.
I love portmanteaus, especially profane or otherwise offensive ones. "Marxcissicist" is great.
It is hard to not notice that the people shown being upset about open violations of Wokish edicts, as occurred in Massachusetts, are usually ugly, middle-aged white women, basically the distaff analogues of Reddit moderators. Imagine someone like Brad Pitt or Portia de Rossi trying to make a convincing case for fat acceptance or the general vibe of accelerating your own physical decay and dismay.
As a punny poet I appreciate pithy playings with words. Conformmunism and Marxcissism, nice!
I will give you another for a Troika of Asses (dumb, numb, or both) to pull the State over the cliff to Nowhere.
Your Conformmunists and Marxcissists have “STRETCH MARX” from overconsumption of Junk Thoughts.
Stay free then safe.
I think we can’t ever be complacent. The overwhelming power of the managerial state is against us. We have to keep pushing and fighting like we are tiny minority, or else the gains of the past few months will be reversed.
Remember that the anti-SJW movement was also briefly ascendant, and then was crushed. We need to learn from previous mistakes and never back down.
Some decades ago Graham Greene wrote The Human Factor, which highlights how even in the most secret plots of the secret services, what determines the results is the human factor.
It is always the human factor that brings good or bad changes, not the system.
The Roman Empire surely has fallen for many reasons but one above all was the human factor.
History is never the same with reference to time and space but it internally repeats itself because of the human factor.
And what is called Globalism seems to have, now, the worst human factor, ever.
That's why I agree with you: "We should nevertheless be very optimistic about the future"
This is the most white pilling thing I have read in 6 years.
I wish I could agree with you that the tide is turning - but the instruments of conformity are far more pervasive than ever before. This encouraging essay should be saluted nonetheless - thank you Gordon for bringing me here.
I like this a lot better than Marxcissicist.
Way more contempt factor! Definitely a rhetorical kill shot.
This is a top shelf essay. Bravo.
Hell no, I won’t go!
This was a blast to read and hilarious, never went commie as a kid just to be a rebel, but I remember going atheist, then going pagan and then Catholique all to rebel (which is peculiar I know). But communism is lame, conformunism lamer and one can only hope kids continue to flout the rules laid down on them and seeking their own destinies as they should.
Really enjoyed reading this, Daniel.
I want to believe that young people will revolt against this crap. But one protest does not make a movement. Still I will keep the faith.
Love the creative term, conformmunism!
I think if it wasn’t for your teachers chainring the rules, you and your friends would have won - I mean, you seemed to have some policies that would have been very enticing to a bunch of school kids.
Great read by the way.
Sorry, spam links are not allowed. Posting a link to your site with some relevant commment is one thing, but posting a short irrelevant clickbait phrase along with a link and posting that ten times in ten separate comments in the comment section of a single article, that merits a ban.
