Picture this: You walk past a feral gang of black youths, like the ones depicted in all these terrifying YouTube clips. You grin bravely, place honky hands on ears and hum loudly as you saunter by, until – you are coshed on the head by a black youth. Then another. And another.
As you fall to your knees near death, you congratulate yourself on cleaving not to reality, but to a noble “theory” instead. You die a happy, theoretically pious libertarian.
It must be abundantly clear to any thinking man that this is idiotic, not individualistic.
Those who’re derided as apostles of intolerance – “collectivists” – for cleaving to reality will likely outlive the self-sacrificing, self-styled individualists, sacrificed to an idea that has no basis in objective reality.
Meanwhile, in our “conservatives are stupid, too” file…
“…many conservatives are so intimidated by the enormous prestige of liberalism that it takes a stern contempt for mere popularity to speak unpleasant truths.”
