Where is the Left these days? Are Progressives still on the Left? Or have they actually spun 180 and become the new Right. The thought police shifted sides at some point in the last 20 years. Now Progressives want to police what is acceptable to say, or write.
How is this happening? How did the left in the West come to embrace restriction, censorship and the imposition of an orthodoxy at least as tyrannical as the anti-Communist, pro-Christian conformism I grew up with? Liberals have ominously relabeled themselves “progressives,” forsaking a noun that had its roots in “liber,” meaning free. To progress is merely to go forward, and you can go forward into a pit.
