If you were to go back to some time in the '50's you could possibly come to the exact moment when social reasoning began to value youth and a liberal arts education over job specific education and hard experience. By the '70's every guy over 40 was being fired and new, younger, "more dynamic" employees were brought in. By the '90's this mind set had worked it's way into the "social think".

Socialist, uber-liberals who knew they would never be "the guy" ,the alpha male of any group, mastered social media and used that to undermine the established norms to gain power and influence. The tall, healthy, athletic male is ridiculed and protrayed as a neanderthal. The blonde joke of male sexuality. The nerdy, socialiy inept, the anti-hero, is being published in book and film as the "new guy". The new provider. The guy "real women" really want to marry. A new truth.

These uber-liberals are todays educators, media moguls, political pundits, politicians and others who depict themselves as "the social conscience". And who know better how do do everything while doing nothing. They shout the loudest, sneer the longest, and can support any side of any arguement as long as it is in opposition to the reasoned, experienced authority.

"My opinion is just as equal as your experience"
"I might not be right but, what I've said sounds better. Therefore I'm more right than you."
People don't come together too often because that would mean consensus, and that would mean that If your right than I'm wrong, and there is no way I'm wrong cuz..... I have feelings man!

Uber-liberals don't want anyone to be right if it means someone will be wrong. Their goal is to have every community, the world, living in a perpetual greyness of slowmotion maybe where everybody and anybody is equally right.
So on the war of terrorism we have the "Islamofascist" (isn't that a double negative?) who want to further impose their religious gelding of Muslim society and eradicate democracy. and at home we have the uber-liberals who have been working to neuter independant thought weighted against "reason"able arguement and the value of lessons learned from hard experience.
I ask you. How can any General win the hearts and minds of the uber-liberalized social maybe mindset?

Don't be afraid to anwser ... I want you to be right.
