From print media to cable television, the alt-right are nibbling at the commercial hegemon of conservative media from the corners and enjoying some success, if not just mere amusement. Unlike broke and scattered leftist media which famously can’t sell toffee, the right-wing press is a billion-dollar industry that hypnotises hundreds of millions of eyes. If hard-right nationalists are able to get themselves a slice of the pie it would be more than just a leg up for a community that have thrived on Japanese imageboards until now: it could promulgate a nationalist phenomenon with serious political power, beyond the most far-fetched dreams of its founders who largely remain living at their mother’s houses.
Hong Wu wrote:Conservatives as conspiracy theorists was a narrative that was popular several years ago when the MSM still had some sway. Today it's not only tenuous but by deplatforming everyone who is a little loony as much as possible (Alex Jones etc.) it actually further weakens the conspiracy theorist narrative by making those people look less mainstream. Just more of the left not being able to think ahead when virtue signaling...

The marxoids are given credit for the sex lib, but that started happening on the back of more reliable contraceptions and the invention of penicilin. Marxists had nothing to do with that. They opportunistically ride on trends, they don't cause them. You are giving the flea the credit for being a mighty bear on the basis of a proboscis full of bear blood.
PR lol. That's their great power? That would explain how trivial they are if that is all they got.
The core roles and values were upended, it is just that after 2000 years of pervasive Christianity those core values have seeped so deep we have them all internalised. The core values of pagans before Christianity was the worship of power and prowess. Pride and greed are virtues! Christianity rotted that all away and made them vices. For the northern pagans being a priest was a woman's job, too girly for men, but Christianity made it a man's job for which women were too dirty to perform.
You aren't aware just how much the slant of your own world view rests on 2000 years of Christianity. The whole of socialism is just an unthinking atavism of Christian values.

How did you figure that one out?
