Moanie Moan Moan Moanism

This from Steven Chase:

The purge of senior editors at the major newspapers last week is no cause for cheering. Their resignations are another milestone in the march of identity politics and 'cancel culture'... and American journalism and democracy will be worse for it.
Ostensibly independent opinion sections were ransacked because the social-justice warriors in the newsroom opposed a single article espousing a view that tens of millions of Americans support. The publisher failed to back up his editors.
All of this shows the extent to which journalism is now dominated by the same moral denunciation, "safe space” demands, and identity-politi

cs dogmas that began in the Universities. This politic now dominates nearly all of America’s leading cultural institutions—mu seums, philanthropy, Hollywood, art, music, book publishers, even late-night talk shows. It means that there are ever fewer institutions that will defend free inquiry and the contest of ideas that once defined Classical Liberalism.

This from Tim:

Monism - the idea that everything is a part of everything and so there should be no separation between aspects of life - is at the root of this. Everything is political. It goes back to Rousseau's The Social Contract where he argues precisely that. (He got the idea from Islam where there is no separation of church and state but a single entity.) Mussolini adopted it Read The Doctrine of Fascism. http:// www.worldfuturef und.org/ wffmaster/ Reading/Germany/ mussolini.htm This has been a goal of the Left since the nineteenth century. Now they are achieving it.
