How come (in the west) if liberalism is so damaging to the individual, did the mid 20th century witness a proliferation of individual expression in the arts: film, literature, rock n roll, etc…?
The 20th century saw an unprecedented rise is in progressive liberal policies stretching from T. Roosevelt to Jimmy Carter. It also witnessed a zeitgeist of anti-conformity in the form of multiple civil rights movements, student demonstrations, the emergence of outlaw chic (Hell’s Angels, the drug culture) and the proliferation of experimental artistic expression which infiltrated the mainstream (Midnight Cowboy was X Rated and won an Oscar).
Under liberalsim’s anti-individual aegis we got Sly Stone, Hunter Thompson, Angela Davis, Tommy from The Who, and Easy Rider. When Reagan and conservatism got a hold of things with their pro individual rhetoric we got Jaws 4, Clarence Thomas, Wham!, and Where’s the Beef…
So, tell me again how liberalism eats at the heart of individualism?
