For anyone who has disagreed with an unrepentant Liberal/Socialist: stand clear[in both senses]. Liberalism/Socialism is their religion, their Faith-full fantasy of perfect equality through central control. Counter them and expect rage, even to the point of silencing/killing you or anyone who disabuses them of their deep-seated utopian notions. Recall a previous generation’s God That Failed. Some will see the light as Koestler, Chambers, Muggeridge & others did. Most will simply cling to the Big Lie. It is the sand on which they’ve built their houses, and the painful honesty required to admit lifelong complicity with evil is beyond most people.
“And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. ” (Matthew 7:26, 27, New Testament).

For those of us in the arts, it has always been a given that our colleagues would lean to the left. Part of that springs from a romantic view of the world that comes with the territory, but that socialist herd mentality tends to get enforced when work drys up for those who disagree. This is not so much a function of punishment as a desire to hang around people who agree with each other. Ironically, that lack of creative tension leads to stagnant art that promotes an orthodoxy that claims to challenge orthodoxies!
