This is a link to a comment wherein I harp a familiar chord, in somewhat more conclusive and less contingent and ironic terms than usual.
The original posting concerns the little North Korean tyrant. The mention of which, leads us to ask “Why is he still in power?” A question to which we know the multifaceted answer. One critical facet being that North Koreans, or Koreans of any kind, are not the right kind of victim group for American political “progressives” to exploit on their own incoherently planned and socially totalitarian journey to nowhere.
Consider seriously: When we take what political progressives say about reality and human existence seriously, and then mercilessly apply those principles in axiomatic fashion to them; what in the final reduction do we find ourselves confronting?
What, when observed under the aspect of his own definitions, is the political progressive?
Update: Eric believes I’m fretting the fabric of progressive life needlessly. He may have a point.
