how liberalism has ruined comic books

Popular culture today is almost entirely dominated by aggressive leftist political agendas. Even comic books are not immune, as Darin Wagner notes. A point echoed by D. S. Hube.

It's become impossible to just sit down and enjoy watching a movie or a TV show without having political correctness rammed down one's throat. Even kids' programming these days mostly consists of political indoctrination. Strident political propaganda does not make for good entertainment.

  1. Oh, all the arts in the west have been largely leftist for quite some time - since the 50s at least - though there was a strong contingent of socialists/communists in the arts before that, too. You can't do much about it. The important thing for me as both an artist (I write poetry and make zines) and a consumer of the arts, I think, is to have an open inquiring mind, and engage with other artists/consumers of arts that way. I quite like reading a lot of boilerplate leftist ideology actually - it gives me something to argue with. Is there any viable alternative? Stop reading books that are leftist, don't look at art made by leftists, etc? That would just end up being counterproductive, I think. Cheers!

    That's actually what I do! I find it's the only way to keep sane.
