Here’s a thought experiment for liberals:
Imagine a world in which every media outlet save one leaned to the right,
and TV shows,
and the entire education system,
also all leaned to the right.
How would that world be for you? How would you feel? You’d be unhappy about it, wouldn’t you?
And what would you do? You’d speak up, wouldn’t you? You’d point out the illogic and the hypocrisy and the unfairness and the narrow mindedness and the closed mindedness of it. Wouldn’t you?
And now, imagine that the response to you speaking up is that you’re told you don’t get it. You’re overreacting. It’s not that bad. And besides, this is as it should be, because you’re wrong anyway. You’re mean, you lack compassion, and you’re innately bigoted. How do we know this? We know this because media, TV, movies, theater, literature, and even the education system, including the social sciences ALL tell us so. It’s science!! And the science is settled. So, you know, deal with it.
News flash: YOU ALREADY DO LIVE IN THAT WORLD!!!
But it leans left, as you do, not right. So you don’t see it. And YOU are the one reacting as above to the criticisms of this not so imaginary world.
