What is liberals’ bottom line?
In the entry on the Western apology cult, liberals’ Achilles heel, which conservatives never see and never take advantage of, is discussed. Namely, the conservatives never say to the liberals: What do you really want? When will you be satisfied? What is the state of society that you seek? If conservatives would ask these questions, the utopian, unappeasable character of the liberal position would be exposed and liberalism would be decisively discredited. Why then don’t conservatives ask the questions? Because the “conservatives” accept liberal premises, move in orbit around liberalism, and cannot imagine really challenging liberalism. They only challenge the “radical, extreme left,” just as they only challenge “extreme” Islam.
