in my very amateurish opinion modern conservativism has two major planks:

1) denial of any link between capitalism and the undermining of traditional values.
2) strict and explicit separation of society into categories of, let's say, "elect" and "damned" (those deserving of privilege, security, etc. and those undeserving...white supremacy is obviously a huge part of this)

All conservatism is the rationalization and preservation of privilege. The hatefulness and nastiness that seems to travel with it has always been there, but obviously people have had different expectations throughout history about what's uncouth and which are the parts you aren't supposed to say out loud.

Scalzi's essay is a tad goofy but I liked his nerdy explanation of privilege: "In the role playing game known as The Real World, “Straight White Male” is the lowest difficulty setting there is."

Any policies that increase egalitarianism in Western societies, by necessity, can be seen as mildly increasing the difficulty setting for Straight White Male. If you're not doing so great at The Real World, and you were already on the lowest difficulty setting, then something's clearly very wrong.

regulation gets in the way of businesses succeeding and makes capitalism not work. we shouldn't regulate wrongdoing out of existence - the market will react and put evildoing companies out of business. it's ok if 371 people die due to eating salmonella infected peanuts because AFTER those people die, people will boycott the brand!

We could have stopped those people from dying but that would have hurt Planters' sales and really when it boils down to it, aren't 371 lives worth it?

Ignoring suffering because of classism and identity politics is part of why we're here. People like you have blood on your hands... POC die because of attitudes like yours, which, on the surface, tries to celebrate them. But it's not out of concern for the lives of POC, but for your own narcissism and privilege, which you then flip on others less fortunate than yourself.

Liberalism and conservatism is the same side of the same coin at this point. Is it any wonder why we are where we are?

Egoism is real, altruism is not. Hence, running a state by egoists’ rules - “like a business,” if you will - is the only sensible option. If the state then falls apart, it’s not because a democracy is inherently altruistic, but because the state is broken and needs to be abolished.

Basically, why is the clustering around so many issues so pronounced? Why is "I don't believe in anthropogenic climate change" necessarily yoked with "guns are a sacred right," or with "what's the matter with a little workplace flirting?," or "can't people take a joke anymore?," or "those athletes are disrespecting the troops with their refusal to stand for the national anthem."

All of those things have one in common which is The Way Things Used to Be When I Was a Kid, or maybe, "when my parents were growing up". As we age, it's typical to take note of how things are now versus how they were when we were learning about the world. In my personal experience, those who feel very negatively about how much things have changed swing to the rightconservative proportionate to how negatively they feel about it. Lately, I've noticed one or two acquaintances roughly my age who are those types of people, who feel that Trump and the alt-right are the undesirable change that has happened, which to me reinforces that the modern Republican party aren't actually conservatives at all and gives me a bit of hope for 2020.

Here was an elemental divide: between Trump and career government employees. He could understand politicians, but he was finding it hard to get a handle on these bureaucrat types, their temperament and motives. He couldn't grasp what they wanted. Why would they, or anyone, be a permanent government employee? "They max out at what? 200 grand? Tops," he said, expressing something like wonder.

Here was a key Trump White House rationale: expertise, that liberal virtue, was overrated. After all, so often people who had worked hard to know what they knew made the wrong decisions. So maybe the gut was as good, or maybe better, at getting to the heart of the matter than the wonkish and data-driven inability to see the forest for the trees that often seemed to plague U.S. policy making. Maybe. Hopefully.

Of course, nobody really believed that, except the president himself.

Still, here was the basic faith, overriding his impetuousness and eccentricities and limited knowledge base: nobody became the president of the United States -- that camel-through-the-eye-of-the-needle accomplishment - without unique astuteness and cunning. Right? In the early days of the White House, this was the fundamental hypothesis of the senior staff, shared by Walsh and everyone else: Trump must know what he is doing, his intuition must be profound.

In an interview with CBN News in November, Vice President Pence spoke about his and President Trump's Christian faith.

"The president and I are believers," Pence told CBN News.

"I've been with this president in the Oval Office with religious leaders when people have asked to pause for a moment of prayer, and the president readily embraces that. I think he's always very humbled and grateful by the support of believers," Pence said.

And evangelicals from Trump's team of advisers say they've seen the change in his life.

"I can tell you Donald Trump is not the same man that you are hearing about from his past. He has had a radical change in his heart. He has had a heart change toward the things of God and the people of God, and he is surrounding himself with prayer warriors," says Mary Colbert, an evangelical leader who has attended meetings with the president.

President Trump even confirmed his Christian faith once again during his Christmas announcement when he referred to "OUR Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

“I am telling you, we’re looking at the FBI, we’re looking at the Department of Justice, we are not looking at all at the White House. Hillary Clinton paid for a warrant — that’s the easiest way we can put it. Hillary Clinton colluded with the Russians. But it appears the FBI at the senior-most levels colluded with the Russians, too. Whether it was witting or unwitting, it doesn’t matter. That’s a fact.

“It has everything to do with Mueller because it transitions from the counterintelligence investigation into a criminal investigation after Comey, of all things, confesses of all things to being a leaker. And Mueller — Mueller is the former FBI director. Those are his people. That is his environment. He’s not out there as some independent force.”

"Communicated "with unwitting agents of the Trump campaign"... that's a crime? "

"So posting negative information about candidates on the web is now a crime? "

"Maybe this is Mueller's exit ramp.
Russians did some stuff. But the Trump people did not know who they were or what they were up to."

"Talk about launching a "Hail Mary"! Folks, Mueller has nothing. This is a joke! "

" There's no collusion. This is a face-saving measure.
But there is no measure to save face. "

"Maybe they should go after some of Mexico's representatives like Vicente Fox. "

"Know this. It is not a crime to have supported Trump over Hillary even if you are Russian. That is not a crime!! This is a fraudulent indictment and will dismissed easily. There is no There There. "

"Mueller is throwing out everything he has left before:
1. Flynn guilty plea is rescinded and case dropped
2. IG report is released which includes some of the trumped up Russian investigation as well as the Hillary email scandal
3. Russian narrative is collapsed when evidence is reveal publicly to the contrary of what they are supposedly investigating"

"This could be an attempt to put this to an end while still getting "something". "

" This indictment actually sounds like great news for President Trump, the wording goes out of the way to exonerate him and the campaign:
The indictment says that some defendants "communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump campaign"
That means - case closed. No collusion. By definition, it take two knowing parties to collude, and the prosecutor wouldn't have gone out of his way to say "unwitting" in a formal indictment if he thought there was any way he could later go after them."

"Soon they will indict anyone who says anything positive about President Trump "

"I'm wondering when Mueller is going to indict Mexican nationals and Mexican entities for interfering in our elections? Or Saudi, etc? "

"How many illegal South Americans aliens who supported Hillary with funds and rallies are going to be indicted? "

"I think this actually exonerates the Trump campaign. "

"The indictments are for the Russians that were arrested in Asia running the ID and money laundering operations. Q advised us of this take down. "

"Russians rightly despise both the Clintons and Obamas because they are Muslim sycophants. Actually, Obama is very clearly a closet Muslim. Outside of the Islamic pigs, nobody likes Muslims."
