driven by ideology
Why This Radical Leftist is Disillusioned by Leftist Culture
Bailey Lamon

Bailey at this time, while many individuals may emotionally feel they are driven by “ideology,” there’s not a lot of thought process involved in these behaviors. At least not rational thought process.

Many of the behaviors you describe are heedless responses to a sense of threat (i.e. threat to worldviews, or threat to literal dominance). A threat to many individuals who do these behaviors (shaming, blaming, attacks, PC police etc) are — in my humble opinion — simply acting to cut off perceived threats at the pass by these simple and effective means.

Again, you show insight, courage and genuine capability to make a difference here. Thank you.
