Culture Wars/Current Controversies

Left and Right Switching Roles

The answer to Joe’s question is simple: censorship, authoritarianism and trying to control others are natural evolutionary by-products of cultural hegemony. In the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, the right had cultural hegemony, today, the left has it. 30 years ago, athletes used to thank God in post-game interviews, now, that’s rare. That’s what cultural hegemony is. This pendulum should swing inevitably back in the other direction. The side that has hegemony withers because censorships makes their ideas progressively less well thought out, meanwhile, the out-group has to create better ideas just to survive. The inflection point happens when the dominant group becomes so nonsensical that normal people think “what the fuck is that?”
