It’s disgusting. But we’ll give you two hints as to why:
–They no longer have a consistent set of moral or ethical values
–They all enthusiastically buy from the place, and constantly
We’ll add another reason: none of the younger ones know (or care) about what a strong pro-labor union movement can do for their lives, or what it did for the lives of their grandparents and great-grandparents.
By “younger” we mean under the age of 50 or 60.
So screw’em. Let them try to get it on their own. These proud quasi-libertarians and solipsists deserve what’s coming to them. That’s actually what most of them are when you look at how they live their lives — they’re unimaginative joiners and enthusiastic ladder-climbers in the world. Except for a few tweaks here and there the established order is just fine with them.
Reagan and Reaganism obviously won 30 years ago. No basic questioning please, it only makes us laugh at you.
But without a sense of strong economic dissent as a basic underpinning, their currently proud participation in single-issue politics will turn out to be an inevitable waste of time. Any change will be at best cosmetic.
Modern day liberals obviously haven’t suffered enough. They will.
