A “war” not of choice

David French expects there to be some sort of mutual tolerance, and that it would be real tolerance. But the left adheres to the Marcusean redefinition of tolerance, as a one-way process that accepts every moral judgment or act that comes from a leftist and rudely, violently rejects every moral judgment or act from anyone not of the left. Their tolerance is not tolerance. Without people using the same words with the same definitions, there can never be comity. That’s the point of the story of the Tower of Babel! Harsh words that offend David French and other anti-Trumpers must be spoken. Legal means must be exercised. Politics must lead to winning, and winning must lead to making changes through legislation and policy, even against grand guignol level protests. It’s going to be nasty. It’s going to be unpleasant. But traditionalists did not choose this “war.” It was thrust on us. And we must not give up the civilization that made the greatest strides in the history of humankind towards establishing harmony and peace among humans.
