In the halls of actual power, meanwhile, conservatives have achieved incredible electoral victories, running up the score against the progressives who in turn take out their frustrations in cultural and intellectual spaces. This is not a dynamic that will end well for us.

While I wholeheartedly agree with this, I also think that ceding more power to them by giving them intellectual platform as they take over the government is stupid too.. it’s a tricky needle to thread. You either give them more platform for their stupid ideas or you keep feeding their persecution complex, is there any way out of this lose-lose situation?
