You should all go read Mel’s post, “The Cynical Theories of the Left.”
It’s really triggering. Just kidding. 🙂
Seriously though, I am immersed in some of this cultural stuff and as a result I’ve been in a struggle most of my life to untangle myself of bitterness, cynicism, and despair. We don’t talk about that aspect of politics or culture nearly enough, but it turns out that being constantly hit by shame about race, gender, class, and then told you are a powerless victim of patriarchy and capitalism, is really unhealthy. To make matters worse, it is likely the world will end in the next couple of years due to global warming anyway. Abandon hope all ye who enter here.
I think not! I have a friend who literally calls her own escape from this ideology “deprogramming.” What is she replacing it all with?
Hope. Life and life abundant.
