Casual GC that got a little out of hand. 🤷🏻♀️
I think what motivates many of these people is that they failed to attain the lifestyles they grew up with. They were spoiled & pampered by their boomer parents who provided everything except a blueprint for how to succeed in life without them.
So they go away to college to get their useless degrees in gender studies or sociology, only to be left with massive amounts of debt that they haven’t much chance of ever paying off unless they get a real job. Which they’re not about to do, because they have virtually no employment history since their parents have supported them through everything.
So rather than take responsibility (which they’ve never had to do), they decide to blame capitalism, teh patriarchy, colonialism or whatever for their immense failures in life. And socialism becomes the answer.
But deep down they know the truth, which is why they crave constant approval from each other. They surround themselves with goodthinking individuals and virtue signal into echo chambers, waiting for their turn to be reassured of their own moral standing.
Their “values” fluctuate with the trends, and they’re always sure to stay on top of whatever the correct opinion is. They’re also quick to call out any of their own who might occasionally step out of line because they live in fear of the day when they themselves might accidentally slip up, and the woke mob will descend on them like a pack of rabid wolves.
And so they seek to preemptively drive back the mob by always, always demonstrating their unfettered devotion to what the collective has deemed the proper opinions. They’d step over the corpses of their own mothers, their own CHILDREN to prove themselves.
