I don’t play the social media game extensively, or even very well, as concerns this blog. There are many bloggers who devote themselves fully to utilizing popular social media to publicize and highlight their blog for maximum public exposure.
I occasionally Tweet, but I usually don’t get involved in lengthy exchanges or rancid PDA (public displays of acrimony) in the social sphere.
Usually. I didn’t say “never.”
Yesterday I replied to a Tweet regarding my favorite subject of the day: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (by way of Amazon’s scuttled New York plans). In the reply, I stumbled upon a description of today’s Left that I rather liked and would rather have explored on these pages as opposed to Twitter’s amorphous platform.
I bring you a rare intersection of Twitter and Social Extinction.
“He said Democratic-Socialist Revival, heh heh, heh…”
That is what we are witnessing in 2019. A furious explosion of blind faith and quasi-religious zealotry that is self-consciously seeking to overturn all previous modes of accepted belief and tradition – many which have worked quite well for a long time, thank you.
In fact, that is the new religion: revolution of the culture, not of the body politic.
The Democratic-Socialist revival has spawned from a culture grown weak and gluttonous and over-confident of its own implied rule. Over time, this former body of rulers have transformed their own strength and relevance into a weakened brand of altruism that seeks giddy self-destruction.
A great culture has allowed and fed its own demise. It has been commandeered by the parasites of leftism and equality and turned to utter shit.
The vapid emotionalists are taking over and will soon create their own party, or perhaps, augment the one already in existence.
The Democratic-Socialist Party.
As we witness the death of relevance and worship of establishment detritus like Clinton, Biden, Pelosi, we are finally beholding the real death of the Democratic Party, and traditionalism, and the rise of the Democratic-Socialist Party.
Mark my word.
