They don’t believe reality is reality.
Is this fundamental. This is very key. If you want to understand why a Meryl Streep can think what she thinks and say what she says, or any of these other people — I don’t care if they’re actors, if they’re extreme left-wing commentators, if they’re just marchers on the street or what have you. Liberals believe that what you and I call “reality” is actually phony. They call it “a social construct,” meaning we in the majority have created this thing that we call reality, and its purpose is to define other people and to deny them access, equality, fairness, or what have you.
To them, reality is just as phony as anything else, because they believe that a majority has created this thing called reality so they can exclude others and so they can be an oppressive majority over him people. They think that reality is something mandated by a majority for their advantage. Take marriage. Their belief is that marriage is something created by a majority of people to deny freedom and equality to other people. They believe that little girls liking to play with Barbie when they’re growing, that’s not reality.
That is a “construct” that we in the majority have created in order to segregate and exclude others from our reality. Well, if you… I’m the mayor of Realville. I am. I swim in it. I am the champion of the literate, the literal, and reality. They think it’s phony. They think it’s something that we make up to deny them access to whatever it is that we call real, to whatever we call normal, to whatever — and by “we,” they make it “us versus them.” And so they think that since reality is phony, a social construct, that they can change it — and this is where they fall apart. They think they can change reality.
Look at outcome-based education: 2 + 2 = 5 until the kid figures out that it’s 4. So if you are of a mind that there is no reality, that it is the creation of your political enemies… Take whatever… Put in “reality” whatever you think. They don’t believe it’s real. They think we or somebody, some majority, created a set of circumstances that we call real and reality to exclude them. They then set about trying to change reality, and that’s what liberalism is.
Liberalism is the inability to accept what is for what it is, in the misguided belief that it isn’t real, that it’s the creation of an evil majority — and they set about trying to change it. This is why they’re never gonna be happy, because you can’t escape the real! You cannot escape reality, and you can’t change it. Gravity is real; you can’t change it. Take this out as far as it goes, and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
