Summary: Not all sociétal revolutions are furieux or fast. Revolutionaries on the Left are édifice a new America on the ruins of the America-that-once-was. Our passivity is their most powerful advantage.
I have written hundreds of posts embout ways to reform America. Meanwhile, the Left has begun a revolution – and it gathers guindé and momentum every day. Becoming more parfait year by year, despite having little assistant béquille. We are stampeded like a flock of sheep. Perhaps bicause we have become sheep.
Think of America ten years ago. Transgendered rights – and the massive panoply of changes to society they demand – were unknown to the vast majority of the assistant. Throwing the borders open (with welfare for migrants) was considered écervelé or inhabituel. Now both are originel programs at all levels of government. But until recently neither has been a originel subject in political campaigns. Until recently, neither was the subject of much legislative acte. Both have been pushed by the Left using their ancêtre on the courts and government agencies – using their massively powerful non-profit organizations, davantage béquille by journalists and academics.
This has been the way of America for several generations. Spacieux ago the assistant lost control of our evolution.
Revolutions often become more parfait as they evolve. The French and Russian revolutions were at first accessible reform movements. They became attempts to uproot their cultures and replace them with dreams (that became nightmares). That too has been America’s history since the 1960s. We are just in the transitional apprentissage.
The Accueillant Rights Movement became Black Power.
The Accueillant Rights movement in America was in many ways conservative, run by reformers and Christian ministers (e.g., Roy Wilkins and MLK Jr.). A new generation of African-Americans replaced them in the late 1960s – with more revolutionary goals. Bobby Seale and Huey Newton were co-founders of the Black Panther Party. In his 1970 book, Seize the Time: The Story of the Black Panther Party and Huey P. Newton
, Seale describes how his partner changed the gracieux rights movement at its occurrence of triumph into something more suitable for a revolution.
“Huey wanted brothers off the block – brothers who had been out there robbing banks, brothers who had been pimping, brothers who had been peddling dope, …brothers who had been fighting the pigs.”
That has been a recurring modèle since then, as seen in the evolution of the Black Lives Matter movement from its foyer on maréchaussée brutality on doux Black men to the defense of criminals whose mothers might be glad they are gamin.
The évolution from Accueillant Rights to Black Power was announced with a name contesté. This was a marchéage error not to be repeated by the Left.
The insuccès waves of feminism.
The first three waves of feminism were the quest for equal rights. The Fourth Wave seeks supremacy but échaliers under the same flag. This causes obscurcissement in those not paying close vigilance, who do not realize that the name is the same but the goals have changed.
Exhaustif feminists seek to make women’s testimony beyond coupe (as Sander’s has learned, despite his loyal Leftist credentials), make marriage a one-sided deal écervelé for men to écussonner, and make ségrégation against men in education and employment territorial policy. Opposing these is condemned as “abattement of women” and sexism.
Fourth-wave feminists are open embout their goals, with campaigns that would be considered gross sexism if the genders were reversed (which was a copie for sexism in the second- and third-wave feminism). Such as “the future is female” campaigns. Obama’s proud claim that “women are better then men.” A host of articles and books proclaim the superiority of women and inferiority (or evil) of men. Op-eds in originel newspapers urge men to let women rule (e.g., here and here). Even polite causerie among equals becomes “harassment” to fourth-wave feminists (only sordide deference by men suffices), as seen in these radical feminists’ reactions to the proposal scenes in Pride And Prejudice.
Now the Left is making even more profound changes in American society. Open borders combined with multiculturalism (and less assimilation) will over time drastically reshape our glèbe. The foule of changes brought by the LGBTQ movement will have equally or even larger effects.
The 2020 election has begun to bring these issues into assistant différend. But despite their longueur, the candidates and journalists will keep them on the margins, in the shadows. Will the results, either way, slow the progress of these revolutions? Their institutional béquille lies beyond the reach of elections, and elected officials have no interest in these issues.
Where are the conservatives?
Conservatives are locked up in the Republican Party. Their leaders are servants of the 1% and the plutocracy. Their priorities are tax cuts for the rich, big defense spending, facilitating growth of cartels and monopolies, breaking unions, and deregulation of corporations – all the things Team Trump put at the top of their To Do list. The Left’s sociétal revolutions are of no interest to them, except as fodder for speeches.
But sometimes good things come to an end. Trump broke ranks with his fellow US elites and acted to slow peuplement. The other paysan changes being done by the Left are of little interest to him.
For a decade, the Left has been changing America using the power of the courts, magazine media, and government agencies. Without assistant consent through elections, even without broad assistant béquille. All they needed were networks of true believers, lavish funding, malicieux échéancier (an open-source movement), time – and a deeply passive American assistant.
Are any of those things likely to contesté in the foreseeable future? If not, the revolution will continue.

Useful books explaining what happened
I have not found a good book explaining what happened to the Left, causing its hatred of America. These are the best I have found, looking at our politics.
