Left-wing activists hate us no matter what we do or say. They want us gone. We must therefore stop trying to please our enemies. Not only is it useless, but this attitude leads us to compromise and the loss of our principles.
Michael Rectenwald discusses what conservatives, libertarians, those on the Right, and free thinkers in general can do to stand up to an ever-encroaching ideological totalitarianism that is attempting to complete its “long march” and cement its position in society via the Great Reset.
