Henry Brown on the Culture Wars

Book 1 of The Retreads on Amazon
Henry Brown over at Virtual Pulp has a post today titled The Culture Wars Heats Up.

Anti-war protestors in the 1960s had a saying that went something like this: “What if there was a war, but nobody showed up?” Well, I’ll tell you what happens when one side doesn’t show up: that side loses.

For generations centrists and everyone right-of-center simply have not shown up for the culture wars. Predictably, the leftists have blitzed right through battlefields of opinion and ideas unopposed–like the Red Army rolling through eastern Poland in 1939–so that their monopoly on the flow of information, including creative expression, was ironclad.

It took some irritated computer nerds to show us that the left is far from invincible. In fact, #gamergate showed the world that the SJWs, feminists and Marxists (cultural and otherwise) are not only vulnerable, they’ve become arrogant from never being challenged for so long, and prove to be weak, inept cowards when confronted by a smart, determined opposition. They are beatable. Very much so.

But you have to actually show up to the fight if you’re going to beat them.

You have to check out his blog because it is so un-PC, and full of wonderful WWII type posters. Love it!

He recommends checking out the new Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance website for book suggestions as well.

Meanwhile, I'm working on some blog improvements, and possibly a weekly newsletter (you guys interested in that?).
