What is radical or exciting about any of this? What could be more conservative than the grey, Sovietised world of bloated bureaucracy and state dependency? Young people after something fresh and liberating shouldn’t look to the Left’s glowering commissars and prissy schoolmarms for inspiration. They should recognise them as the deadbeats who’ve been kicking the can in their direction for the past few decades, and whose obsession with equality has lowered their horizons and stunted their opportunities. A life defined and prescribed according to the nostrums of the Left is no life at all. It’s a travesty: a blood sacrifice to the gods of ego and equality. No one with an ounce of intelligence or integrity should want anything to do with it.
