Today’s left lacks worthy menaces to fight. It is driven to find a replacement for racism, some sweeping historical wrongdoing that morally empowers those who oppose it. (Climate change?) Failing this, only hatred is left.
Hatred is a transformative power. It can make the innocuous into the menacing. So it has become a weapon of choice. The left has used hate to transform President Trump into a symbol of the new racism, not a flawed president but a systemic evil. And he must be opposed as one opposes racism, with a scorched-earth absolutism.
I have wondered what it would be like to be a Feminist/SJW/Whatever. To build your life around one very narrow notion, to ascribe to that notion superiority; implying your own superiority. Requiring little more from a person than enthusiasm (nothing like sacrifice or self-reflection required), it seemingly offers a simple ideal path.
But does it? There is the need to maintain enthusiasm. Since whatever the latest cause is make no sense when considered logically, there is a pressing need to compensate. The simplest manner to do so is through getting mad. Over the long haul it can be difficult to maintain the madness, required the group to effectively administer booster shots to each other.
So what might the long term effects of living such a life? There is, of course, physical stress on the body. This is not good. There is also the mental issues that arise from twisting your mind into knots. And then there is one last thought; who really wants to go through life mad about / hating everything?
