What’s the difference between how a conservative thinks and how a progressive thinks?
Konstantin Kisin offers an answer in his essay in The Free Press entitled The Day the Delusions Died. He says that a friend told him that when she woke up on October 7, she was progressive. But after learning about the atrocities Hamas committed in Israel that day, by the time she went to bed she had become a conservative.
Kisin says that she was not the only one to undergo such a change. (My impression is that this is most evident among Jewish liberals who are shocked to see, once again, people killed just because they are Jews. Meanwhile, many on the hard anti-semitic left are doubling down on their support for Hamas.)
