Rod Dreher Gets It…….. Welcome to the Dark Side, Rod………..

Rod Dreher comes to the realization something is seriously wrong with “conservatism”. 

If every man is his own end, and has no other to answer to, then he can do anything he wants. And this is not the ideal of Dan Savage, it’s the ideal of John Locke and all the Whigs since.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. I’m sure he came to this conclusion quite a while ago.

    As an Orthodox convert, I can understand his thinking to a large degree. I used to be another garden-variety Republican with a libertarian streak, until Orthodoxy divested me of the American shell I was trapped in, and I realized that the entire American premise of classical liberalism/libertarianism was fundamentally flawed.

    Republicans need to realize that God does not set his clock to any American time zone.

    “Religious and social conservatives are now divided between those who believe that Caitlyn Jenner (I use Jenner as an iconic example) is a betrayal of the idea of America, and those who believe that she is a fulfillment of the idea of America.”

    Your friend, Rod, ate the cake while attempting to deconstruct it. He called a dickless dude a “she,” rather than a “he,” simply because he (Jenner) prefers to be called “she.”

    Who is Rod Dreher? A famous conservative writer? All these guys you know I’ve not heard of, Trashy.

    One can tell that there’s something to the MRM and PUA because eventually, all these MSM superstars start cribbing our material. One wonders where wn will be when MRM is commonplace.
