You've nailed it about Western liberalism's obsession with language, to the exclusion of wide-ranging study of world history or systematic observation of present social conditions. Liberalism of the 1950s and '60s exalted civil liberties, individualism, and dissident thought and speech. "Question authority" was our generational rubric when I was in college. But today's liberalism has become grotesquely mechanistic and authoritarian: It's all about reducing individuals to a group identity, defining that group in permanent victim terms, and denying others their democratic right to challenge that group and its ideology. Political correctness represents the fossilized institutionalization of once-vital revolutionary ideas, which have become mere rote formulas. It is repressively Stalinist, dependent on a labyrinthine, parasitic bureaucracy to enforce its empty dictates.

The reluctance or inability of Western liberals to candidly confront jihadism has been catastrophically counterproductive insofar as it has inspired an ongoing upsurge in right-wing politics in Europe and the United States. Citizens have an absolute right to demand basic security from their government. The contortions to which so many liberals resort to avoid connecting bombings, massacres, persecutions, and cultural vandalism to Islamic jihadism is remarkable, given their usual animosity to religion, above all Christianity. Some commentators have suggested a link to racial preconceptions: that is, Islam remains beyond criticism because it is largely a religion of non-whites whose two holy cities occupy territory once oppressed by Western imperialism.
...
Right now, too many secular Western liberals treat Islam with paternalistic condescension—waving at it vaguely from a benevolent distance but making no effort to engage with its intricate mixed messages, which can inspire toward good or spur acts of devastating impact on the international stage.
It is certainly ironic how liberals who posture as defenders of science when it comes to global warming (a sentimental myth unsupported by evidence) flee all reference to biology when it comes to gender. Biology has been programmatically excluded from women's studies and gender studies programs for almost 50 years now. Thus very few current gender studies professors and theorists, here and abroad, are intellectually or scientifically prepared to teach their subjects.

Read it all, simpletons.

    Think of Camille Paglia as Race, only more eloquent and intelligent, but who, like Race, became disillusioned that their youthful ideals didn't pan out in some revolutionary utopia where problems of race, class, ethnicity, religion, and gender were all solved and we could all go have some pie together. They don't seem to realize that most of life's and society's larger problems aren't really solvable, but merely manageable, and that progress is a long process of fits and starts, not to mention regressions, and that it takes a long time for attitudes and larger culture to shift. So as they get older and realize that those Big Problems are still there, and while they may see improvement, they feel betrayed by a Left that they feel promised them Resolution, and they subsequently turn against it in a wave of anger and bitterness instead of continuing the fight for progress.

    Naomi Wolf and Katie Roiphe are third-wave feminists. Katie is ugly but well-spoken; Wolf, on the other hand, even though it's been 15+ years since she's written anything of relevance, is probably still hot enough to fuck with the lights on. Feminists love it when they're reduced to sexual objects; I think it's why they go into feminism.

    Muslim terrorism today is the result of (1) ignorant recreation of the post WWI Ottoman Empire by the allies that did not respect at alll cultural or religious (Shia v Sunni) divides, (2) imposition of Israel in 1948 in spite of virulent Arab and Muslim opposition, (3) persistent US military presence in the Arab and Muslim world along with its collaboration with corrupt regimes in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq and Iran, and (4) religious Muslim despots instilling warped and murderous doctrines into a gullible and hopeless generation of young people animated to kill by the aforementioned issues.

    I will turn it back over to @HFNY to resume his American white trash tirade.
