До основанья, а затем

Салливан развлек - пишет, что на смену либерализму у демократов пришла "successor ideology". Там много букв вокруг да около, вот нужный фрагмент:

The movement is much broader than race — as anyone who is dealing with matters of sex and gender will tell you. The best moniker I’ve read to describe this mishmash of postmodern thought and therapy culture ascendant among liberal white elites is Wesley Yang’s coinage: “the successor ideology.” The “structural oppression” is white supremacy, but that can also be expressed more broadly, along Crenshaw lines: to describe a hegemony that is saturated with “anti-Blackness,” misogyny, and transphobia, in a miasma of social “cis-heteronormative patriarchal white supremacy.” And the term “successor ideology” works because it centers the fact that this ideology wishes, first and foremost, to repeal and succeed a liberal society and democracy.

In the successor ideology, there is no escape, no refuge, from the ongoing nightmare of oppression and violence — and you are either fighting this and “on the right side of history,” or you are against it and abetting evil. There is no neutrality. No space for skepticism. No room for debate. No space even for staying silent. (Silence, remember, is violence — perhaps the most profoundly anti-liberal slogan ever invented.)

And that tells you about the will to power behind it. Liberalism leaves you alone. The successor ideology will never let go of you. Liberalism is only concerned with your actions. The successor ideology is concerned with your mind, your psyche, and the deepest recesses of your soul. Liberalism will let you do your job, and let you keep your politics private. S.I. will force you into a struggle session as a condition for employment.

Идеология, которая ставит своей целью уничтожить нахрен либеральное общество и демократию, чтобы занять их место. Кто бы мог подумать, а. Для человека, который знает текст песенки, написанной Эженом Пуатье полтора века назад, это выглядит дико смешно.

Но главная опасность не  в этой идеологии, нет. Главная опасность, сообщает нам Салливан, это что из-за этой идеологии трамписты могут получить политическое преимущество, а они куда хуже любой "successor ideology". Вот о чем надо беспокоиться правильному либералу в первую очередь.
