Why is vicimhood the common conservative denominator nowadays? I am a white male, member of the military, considered conservative in my circle...I live in liberal "mordor" but do not feel persecuted.

 

Have you ever showed us ANY 'conservative side' of yours apart from talking that there is one?

You can only imagine how insanely left wing his circle must be if Paul is considered "conservative".

I think the implication being suggested was that it could be something that happens when the social policing around you hits a certain tipping point, and the revolution starts to devour its own.  That phrase exists for reason, right?

Some heartwarming news from Iran and the EU:

French energy giant Total has officially quit its multi-billion-dollar gas project in Iran, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said on Monday, following the reimposition of US sanctions.

Zanganeh also appeared before parliament to underline the dire state of Iran’s oil and gas facilities, which he said were “worn out” and in need of renovation that Iran could not afford.

He's rolling over, crying uncle and saying it's all because of Trump?! Best news since a long time.

So you have experienced "social policing"? And what does that entail?

Yes, but a cursory study of the British political scene indicates he is hemorrhaging support support everywhere. More to the point, he lost the election to someone whom, looking back, really should have been a pushover. Corbyn is a threat, yes, but a rapidly diminishing one happily. And can we stop banging on about Margaret Thatcher as if she was some kind of saint that saved the country. She created at least as many problems as she solved, a point even the Conservative party belatedly has faced up to by not extolling her virtues at every conference.

 

I was reading an interesting book on Communist Architecture, and the author took his Polish Girlfriend to go and visit Sweden. She was really annoyed. She couldnt understand how someone could build a socialist state without achieving the worst ill effects of stalinist style socialism. The Swedes of course denied ever having been Socialist, having a strong free market economy. OTOH, by the US understanding of the word Socialist, they were practically all Commies. :)

Stuart, that link at the bottom of your text provide some of the most interesting and accurate description of modern Swedish economic/political history I have read in a long time. The fact that it is written by a socialist and that he practically admits defeat just makes it even more interesting. Regardless of wether one mourns the decline of "socialism" in Sweden or rejoice at it, this piece is (IMHO) a very accurate and honest insight into modern Sweden. Anyones mileage may vary as to what one considers to be socialism but it is beyond any doubt true that todays Sweden is a hell of a lot less socialist than it used to be.

Social Security is a socialist construct
As are National Parks, the VA, Medicare/Medicaid and trade tariffs. The implementation of each of these moved the US left on the spectrum.

One could probably add the bailout that Trump is giving farmers to that mix.
