A Thomist learns to party on.
Meh. Ol' Bernie is just getting Progressived.
What struck me as I watched this was how supine the organizers were. Then I thought that this echoed what I'd read about student demands for changes in university curriculum. This, then, is the whole "reject traditional culture" battle being played out on a small stage.How did we lose so much confidence in ourselves that we allowed petulant children like this to run roughshod over us?
"How did we lose so much confidence in ourselves that we allowed petulant children like this to run roughshod over us?"This (and many other repugnant trends) is the natural-and-inevitable result of a "pact with the devil" that we, as a society, have made ... concerning sex. Like so many of the social evils in the modern world, it goes back to the "Progressive Era" over a century ago.The one side of the "deal" was the promise of lots of consequence-free no-strings sex (and everyone lived happily ever after!), predicated on "non-judgmentalism", the other side was basically, "we'll talk about that later". As it turns out, the "we'll talk about that later" was a blank check -- this is, in order to hold on to our cultural rejection of those "old-fashioned" and "repressive" sexual mores (which rejection we now call "the Sexual Revolution") inherited from our ancestors, it turns out that we have to keep rejecting yet another part of our civilization inherited from them.
