People are honestly trying to tell me that in the ONLY country in the developed world where there is no universal healthcare, where Pharma companies can advertise direct-to-consumer, & where it’s legal to own semi-automatic weapons, that the Right has “no institutional power.” 😂

What's the word for when elites claim to be upset about the plight of marginalized people as an indirect way of expressing their status-based grievances against other elites? There must be a German or Greek word for that.

@clairlemon Not sure what big business has to do with "the Right". Lots of big tech companies aren't remotely "Right", Apple, Google, Microsoft. Right to bear arms comes from a document written in the 18th century, not the modern Right.

Robert Hughes's 1993 book where he talks about an-- "infantilized culture of complaint" "in which Big Daddy is always to blame" "where only the victim shall be the hero" "and where grievance is elevated to automatic sanctity"

"The wingnuts of the Right have no institutional power" is such a cop out. Millions of people sit on YouTube all day long, with conspiratorial grievance-mongering from right-wingers their only source of information. If this isn't "power" then nothing is.

In the historical analysis of how social media deranges groups via enforcement of conformity and performative moral grandstanding, we'll remember The Great Awokening of the Left as preceding The Great Conspiracisation of the Right by only a few short years.

"Technological and social change pushes people to find their identity in tradition and, in many cases, in religion; other civilisations may copy the West in some ways, but they will also strive to remain distinct and true to their civilisational roots."
