I mentioned in a recent Substack that I have abandoned the concept of having a political ideology in favor of preferences that align with how I wish to live my life. I realize that many people who claim not to be of the Left have built a moral framework out of their political ideology. This is exactly what the Left does, and it’s what makes them so dangerous, especially given the Left's anti-human and anti-God political beliefs. Now, imagine the morality of those who believe there is nothing wrong with prostitution, drug use, etc., and defend the right of junkies to shoot up in the parks your children play in because of their political ideology. One side wants to mutilate your child's genitals against your will, and the other defends your parental rights to do the same.
Ideology is nothing but a box to be used by leftists to trap us in.
As a moderately culturally conservative (atheist) libertarian, I am currently attracted to the idea of intellectually battling those who push odious ideologies like feminism, cultural Marxism (but I repeat myself), CRT (again), such that we get some positive political downstream effects.
My instinctive response was to make an “it’s not enough to not be a leftist, one must be actively such-and-such” joke, but then it occurred to me that I recently left an uncomfortable office chair to buy an established roofing company and that what I really care about is the birth of my second child in a few months.
Before we can fight, we must have something worth fighting for. Ideology is big gay.
This approach is heartening. https://open.substack.com/pub/public/p/normies-of-the-world-unite?r=b5zww&utm_medium=ios&utm_campaign=post
