Maybe some deeper currents from Romanticism to Modernism to Postmodernism are worth thinking about. As I see things, many people who care deeply about the avant-garde also can bind themselves to ever narrower political and ideological commitments.
The journey of The Western Self bears proper care.
According to some folks at The New Yorker magazine, the only answer to injustice is radical and revolutionary equality. The below tweet exhibits an ideology that really advocates getting unhappy people into the streets, and into people’s homes, with revenge in mind.
To be fair, the logic embedded within much radical chic usually reveals itself to be cool at first, the same old murderously bad doctrinaire utopianism a little later on:
Private property & the rule of law are expendable in the pursuit of radical equality. The logic is applied to non-US test cases first, then, here at home. The politics a Constitutional Republic/democracy requires will include radical egalitarians actively co-opting politics. https://t.co/Nebyc71Ogd
