Turning the World Upside Down, Down Under

Over at CT I have an article called “Turning the World Upside Down, Down Under,” which is basically about how the Benedict Option is not really an option in Australia, and instead we need another approach, what I call the Thessalonian Strategy.

I conclude:

Remember, the center of gravity for secular progressives is the belief that they occupy the moral high ground. So our strategy needs to expose how this movement has come to represent silencing, threatening, humiliating, and penalizing those who do not share progressive values. It must be pointed out that the new tolerance looks like some manifestations of the old tyrannies. Don’t be afraid to a hold a mirror up to its supporters and point out that, all too often, they look less like Martin Luther King than a bratty, hipster version of Robespierre. And then go and love them all the same.
