Why This Radical Leftist is Disillusioned by Leftist Culture
Bailey Lamon

As a leftist from the 1960s and 70s, it is good to hear you express a lot of what many of us old New Leftists have been thinking. All of this baloney about trigger warnings and the attempted censoring of whole areas of discourse is ridiculous. I have two friends who are rightists, one slightly liberation and the other full blown libertarian, as well as a few reborn Christian that are good people and with whom I have great discussions. It is only by the fire and forging of debate and discussion with those we disagree with are our minds strengthened. Spouting the au currant phrases reflects mimicry and possibly great study of certain ¨sacred¨ writings reflects hard work and a good memory, nothing more. Thank you.
