Bailey at this time, while many individuals may emotionally feel they are driven by “ideology,” there’s not a lot of thought process involved in these behaviors. At least not rational thought process.

Many of the behaviors you describe are heedless responses to a sense of threat (i.e. threat to worldviews, or threat to literal dominance). A threat to many individuals who do these behaviors (shaming, blaming, attacks, PC police etc) are — in my humble opinion — simply acting to cut off perceived threats at the pass by these simple and effective means.

Again, you show insight, courage and genuine capability to make a difference here. Thank you.
