Anywhere in American society where the left forms the majority, or even the near-majority, is a wreck. Who can analyse an entire culture, especially one as diverse as the American, but this seems generally right to me:
Once you recognize the influence of mental illness in shaping [left ideologies of all kinds], you find yourself nodding in agreement with Professor Glenn Reynolds: “I’m beginning to think that most lefty movements are just about broken people trying to manipulate the rest of us so they can feel good about their broken selves.”
Indeed, the “broken people” are everywhere now, piling up like debris scattered by a storm or a flood. Decades of societal breakdown — accompanied by a cultural decadence that celebrates divorce, bastardy, prostitution and every imaginable perversion as expressions of “diversity” — have produced a generation of young people who lack the ability to form healthy, normal relationships. The “broken people” demand that society be further re-structured to accommodate their depravity and helplessness. School children must be taught how to negotiate sexual consent, because there are no longer any moral customs to regulate sexual behavior, nor are any of these feral youth capable of romantic sentiment, having been raised in a godless carnival of cruelty devoid of anything that might plausibly be called love.
The stability of the era in which I was raised – the era of the Saturday Evening Post and its covers – is gone for all time. Being young today is a trial, whether male or female. Each has its horrors, related to each other, but impossible to avoid unless your luck really does hold out.
