Longing for Total War
Ideology, Liberty, War
A large swathe of the Right has lost its mind. The warlust runs so deep it’s not even related to any recognizable strategic goal anymore. It’s war as self-expression. It means “We’re serious.” Never mind that it makes as much sense as chewing glass. Sure, the post is hedged and qualified with weasel words and stated as a hypothetical (much like current right-wing discussions about whether we should kill a lot more civilians). But it seems apparent that like many other much-linked, funnynamed characters on the internet, “Tigerhawk” looks fondly on the prospect of total war and the regimentation it would require. Remind me again why I’m supposed to be so scared of the Left.
