My place in liberal society

One of the more amusing or depressing contradictions of our leftist world is that it strenuously denounces, via the language of objective moral categories, those who disagree with its fundamental principles, even as it denies the existence of those categories, which are by necessity immaterial and therefore incompatible with the left’s materialism. Indeed, I think this might be the most serious criticism of the left’s political modus operandi. The left uses the language of objective moral categories as the critical impetus for its desired socialist revolution, only to deny the existence of those categories when others dare to question the bizarre atheistic, materialistic foundations of their socialist revolution, e.g. the goodness of the left’s pursuit of equality in all things.LA replies:
What you have said is such a refreshing contrast to the typical response of the paleocons and white nationalists to the regime of political correctness. Because the PC version of morality (e.g. the racism charge) is the established morality of our society, these purely reactive rightists equate PC with morality; and because the PC morality is false and oppressive, they conclude that all morality is false and oppressive, and that everything (particularly any speech or acts towards other ethnicities and races) is permitted. Instead of posing a true moral code against the false moral code of liberalism, they reject all moral codes, except for the code of tribalism.
