Similarly to freedom of speech being under attack, so is the
individual - group-think is in, and the neo-marxist agenda is
successfully redifining you as a member of a group, no individual at
all - communism (the bad bits) by the back door is well on the way.

And so, one of the greatest ironies is that a true "Western"
conservatism is actually an antidote to the dichomatic madness being
spewed out by the so-called "liberal left" (which is in fact anything
but - rabidly racing head long into a totalitarian dystopia).

Respect for the sovereignty of the individual, as Dr Jordan Peterson
puts it, is one of the foundations of Western society, and, he says,
this (along with a number of other foundations) are in todays madness
a genuinely conservative position which may inform the various
conservative political parties (we are still living in hiearchical
purported democracies last I checked).

Compelling stuff. Enjoy,
