My favourite excoriator of the political Left, in its American manifestation, is Camille Paglia. She is a rational exponent of western culture, a fervent exponent of responsible sexual behaviour, of personal responsibility in general, and a fierce debater against political correctness in all its forms. Sure, she talks too fast and too loud, but so do 80% of Americans.
“The absolute collapse of any intellectual standards in American colleges…”
“I can feel the nothingness in American cultural criticism…”
“The conservative movement has been a victim of its own success…”
“sexuality is a delicate interaction of culture and biology…”
“Western culture is an advanced state of decadence…”
What is the degree of intersection between the read-meat conservatives who like the defence of gun ownership and the cultural conservatives who think western culture and art are hugely important and, in general, superior?
