The snake’s left hand

October 6, 2016 § 3 Comments

Framing liberalism as a motte and bailey doctrine, with left liberalism aggressively expanding the liberal bailey (outer region of novel and indefensible territory) while right-liberals defend liberalism from the motte (inner fortress of established territory), provides another way of understanding the Hegelian Mambo, that is, why Cthulu always swims “left”.

Because left isn’t really left.

What we call “left” is just liberalism conquering more personal, political, social, ideological, religious, and even actual geographic territory.  As left liberals expand liberal dominance into more and more of reality, right liberals defend the leftist position from an ever expanding motte at the center.  That is, yesterday’s liberal is today’s conservative.
