Far Left Media Is Dying Because Gen-Z Is Too Conservative

Will the rise of Generation Z mark the death of SJWism? Is the PC/SJW/Antifa phenomenon simply the final stage in the backlash against the “old world” that existed before the cultural revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, and which has now become status quo?

It is necessary for anarchists and libertarians to oppose authoritarianism wherever it emerges. In the 1950s, it was racism and McCarthyism. In the 1960s and 1970s, it was the draft and the Vietnam War, Nixonism, and COINTELPRO. In the 1980s and 1990s, it was Reaganism, the War on Drugs, the “Satanic panic,” the religious right, Clintonism, and the “war on crime.” In the 2000s, it was the neconservatives and the War on Terrorism. In the past decade or so, left-wing authoritarianism of the SJW variety has become pervasive. In the future, it could become something else. For instance, “anti-sex trafficking” hysteria seems to be on the rise, or perhaps SJWism could create a right-wing backlash of the kind that has already been partially observed by the emergence of Trumpism, the Alt-Right/Lite, etc. Eternal vigilance.


Far Left Media Is Dying Because Gen-Z Is Too Conservative. Study after study shows the trend, generation z is becoming conservative and mostly resembles libertarians or moderate Republicans. This is a dramatic shift from Millennials who are overwhelmingly progressive. What happens then is that these companies cannot grow or attract new readers because young people do not want far left media. The outcome is obvious, these companies are laying people off and collapsing. While social justice is something most people agree with, the regressive left is too authoritarian and off putting.

    • Gen Z may be an ideal audience for mutualism and individualist-anarchism given their apparent petite bourgeois orientation, and their lack of interest in the SJW paradigm (assuming Tim’s analysis is correct). Rebellion against moral panics is often something that finds an audience among young people, so perhaps Gen Z will be the foundation of an anti-SJW counterculture as SJWs increasingly become the establishment, at least in some institutional sectors.

      • That makes sense since my generation (Gen Y) has somewhat fallen into the state socialist trap. Look at my generation’s overwhelming support for Bernie Sanders, whom I never care for as well as Donald Trump, that centrist State capitalist schmuck, whom I also despise

  1. I dont see a drift to the right i see a vote of no confidence in government the naturally woul lead to the political right or more specifically libertarian. If you dont trust the government you vote for smaller government and lower taxes so you can keep as much money as oossible. I think this is the trend.
