How does the left turn issues on and off so readily? Several years ago, concern about global warming was not only a priority as far as the left was concerned, but a requirement for your membership in civilized society.

Then it was health care. We were awash in tears for the poor Americans who could afford health care. By many accounts, the problem has gotten WORSE, but the issue is gone.

Today’s requirement is all about social justice, and giving things to people who aren’t white.

I’m reminded over and over of Richard Rorty’s stunning admission about leftist political thinking:

“I think that a good Left is a party that always thinks about the future and doesn’t care much about our past sins.”
