The most depressing thing about the entire culture is that we may have no choice but to turn into the things we hate - i.e. the progressive movement. Because the mean and nasty methods they are using are the only ways to communicate with them in a way they understand.
I do not like it, and it is a culture and society that is in trouble if it has to revert to that stage, rather than progressing upward from the stage. But right now, we have a side that simply does not care to understand messages in any other fashion. Being nice and courteous and well-mannered is regarded as a sign of weakness and worthy of contempt by these folks, just another encouragement for renewed attack.
I personally think Ace of Spades has gone full-on Trumpkins in a way that cloud their judgment and good sense, but I think they might be correct in that we have to go the dark route. Which is sad and depressing, since we still have to interact with other people, but the world might been reaching the tipping point for that.

Sadly I came to that conclusion in the wake of McCain's loss. This lesson was reinforced in spades with Romney's candidacy as Romney would have been a good leader in a consensus and bridge building environment. He was just the wrong man for the times.
I understand why many dislike Trump's aggressiveness and tactlessness. Unfortunately what these people often don't get is that this is what is needed in the political trench warfare that's been fought since the 60s, particularly since the Socialists seized the cultural high ground over the last couple of decades.
Losing with dignity will no longer cut it. Especially since history shows what Socialists do even to their no longer convenient allies, much less what they do to their opponents.

I always shake my head when I see the young(er) boys and girls today believing themselves as part of the People's Vanguards, members of the force that will reshape the world starting with the US and make it into a better, progressive place. The exact scenario, down to a 'T,' has unfolded before. The secondary and college students, the idealistic young, who joined Mao's Red Guards believed that, just as they believed the destruction they were causing in the Cultural Revolution would bring about a better, progressive world.
Some of them still believed it right up to the moment Mao ordered the People's Liberation Army to machinegun them into ditches. The rest who avoided summary executions or labor camps, found they had completely wasted almost a decade of their lives, never realizing that they would be discarded when they no longer conveniently served a purpose.
The only question is the manner in which the Millenials will be disposed of, when their usefulness comes to an end.
