Since we’re nearing the 100 year anniversary of the October Revolution, I’m reading up on the early USSR. It’s fascinating to see how Bolshevik our liberals are. The clothes, the jargon, the attitudes — the whole SJW schmear, 2017, would be right at home in a Party cell in Petersburg, 1917 (renowned Sovietologist Sheila Fitzpatrick said the Bolshevik “debate” style was all “smugness and tautology”). Even the word “activist” — a very strange one if you think about it — comes from the Russian activ, the collective noun for that personality type (much like intelligentsia, another Russian word; the singular, I think, is intelligent (n.)).
The difference, of course, is that the Bolsheviks had a goal in mind. It was awful and impossible, but at least a Bolshie could tell you why she was acting as she did. Our SJWs have no idea why they do what they do. They can’t possibly describe to you what the Socially Just world would look like… largely because there’s 100 years of evidence showing that it changes from day to day, and a fervent believer in yesterday’s gospel is getting worked to death in the gulag today.
That’s one of the keys to SJW psychology. The Bolshies dressed like bums and acted like drunk longshoremen consciously, because that’s how they imagined the “Proletariat” acted and they were trying to ape “proletarian” culture (they went so far as to make an “art” movement out of it — proletkult, another wonderful Russian word we could sorely use here). Again, it was stupid and impossible, but goal-directed. Our SJWs act like that because acting like that disguises the pointless stupidity of it all. SJWs are bored, listless people who know, deep down, that they’re wasting their lives. Constant offense lets them keep that feeling at bay. It’s “permanent revolution” in the mechanical sense — if you’re always spinning, spinning, spinning in place, you’ll never realize you’re not getting anywhere.
