conformRecently (or perhaps more accurately, finally), I  started reading Mark  Steyn’s After America: Get Ready for Armageddon.

While I don’t intend to write a review for a book two years old, After  America is increasingly relevant as America slowly slides to its own  destruction.

However, something jumped out at me while I plodded through the first 60 or  so pages. It’s something that we, as a nation don’t discuss nearly enough.  Indeed, in our own hubris, we often fail to recognize its reality.

In the modern era — where we are apparently free and liberated to do what we  like, where we like, when we like — America is becoming ever more  homogeneous.

We are expected to conform to the liberal worldview.

The government is seen as a cure-all for society’s problems. Massive  entitlement programs “ensure” that the poor don’t starve or die in the streets.  Those programs protect the wealthiest demographic in America, the elderly, from  poverty.

If you believe that government coddling a significant fraction of its  citizens, far more than are actually destitute, or spending its way to  bankruptcy is wrong, then you hate the poor. You must believe that  welfare are good and no dissent will be tolerated.

Science must always conform to the leftist/secularist worldview. Humanity  must believe in the reality of man-made global change climate, or whatever  moniker they happen to be using this week. We must all believe in the nihilistic  evolutionary theory of the origin of life. Not to do so would be anti-science,  and we can’t have people who aren’t bound by the laws of what the left deems to be the truth,  now can we?

No one should be allowed to openly question Darwinism, lest some start to  believe that God created a globe that goes through natural cycles.

Sex, of course, must always be loose and unbound. Otherwise you’re just a square who doesn’t understand  that loose trousers and spread legs are the way to truly enjoy life. You have to  be some sort of sexually repressed control freak to believe that careless sex  leads to disease, emotional trauma and, worst of all, pregnancy. Millions of  youth never even saw that last one coming, and were encouraged to sleep around  long before they’ve had any real life experience.

Speaking of pregnancy, one must of course conform to the idea that abortion  isn’t murder. It’s the woman’s right. She should have the right to choose  to have her doctor, CNA, corner store butcher (or whoever California wishes to  certify next to perform abortions) plunge a needle into a baby and burn it from  the inside out as it is sucked dry of fluid. Or be forcefully dismembered in the  womb. Our “betters” tell us it is the humane thing to do.

Let us not leave out the leftist view of race, either. If one does not  believe in special treatment for the Black or the Hispanic (not the Asian,  though — they often succeed on their own merits), he is a horrible, racist bigot  only lacking the pointy white hood. And even then, that’s likely tucked away in  some chest buried in the backyard, patiently awaiting the day when it is in  vogue again.

AfterAmericaIt is not like blacks or Hispanics can succeed if  they stay out of trouble and work hard. They must be given special dispensation  to enter the country’s universities or government jobs. After all, institutional racism abolished fifty years ago is still alive and  well.

If there’s a disproportionate number of minorities being disciplined in  schools, it must be due to the schools’ disciplinary procedures. If a  disproportionate number of minorities get busted for committing crimes, clearly  there’s some sort of outside force (likely with lily white skin) that is  responsible.

The media, by and large, excepting the odd element like Fox  News Channel, is on the left to varying degrees. All try to cover for Obama in  one way or another. All celebrate the cause célèbre of the week, whether it’s  the latest state to legalize gay marriage or the newest law cementing the  protected status of the black man. Indeed, ABC has an entire hidden camera  program, “What Would You Do?” dedicated to this self-righteous feel-goodism.

The point of that long list? If you believe some or all of the aforementioned  is bad, you are no good to the left. Even if for the barest of seconds you  express an opinion that does not conform to the status quo, you are shamed until  you believe what the left wants you to believe.  Otherwise, you are  marginalized for your “backwards thinking.”

We live in a world where free-thought  is, in reality, thinly veiled totalitarianism. For without conformity of  thought, Leftism cannot thrive.
