With no self-awareness whatsoever, Democrats embrace authoritarianism, racial conflict, the rewriting of history, and the politically expedient redefinition of words while accusing their opponents of those transgressions. Holding up their copies of 1984, Brave New World, and Fahrenheit 451 as if they understood the lessons of those novels (and some tyrants in the Democratic Party no doubt do), they have ironically become the spitting image of everything against which Orwell, Huxley, and Bradbury forewarned.
What is less clear is where Republicans stand. For too long, they have embraced the mantle of a stodgy, conservative party, happy to oppose first the threats of Soviet communism and then the rising menace of Marxist-socialism, more generally, by merely slowing down their opponents' push for revolutionary change and seeking to preserve traditional institutions of American culture and power. Fighting growing government power by conserving traditional government power, however, has predictably aided the government in only becoming more powerful. So-called "progressives" have succeeded in expanding government control over the individual, and so-called "conservatives" have succeeded in preserving the progressives' new devices of control in the name of "tradition."
