What do you guys think is going to the next Moral panic/outrage after SJWism dies out? - You know there's going to be one.

This is something I've been pondering for awhile.


As others on this forum have undoubtedly observed the 2010s has had it's fair share of ongoing moral panics/outrages including but not limited to #MeToo,"Nazism",White Nationalism,racism,sexism,the Alt-Right etc. And as others have noted this isn't the first time the country's gone on a feeding frenzy against it's own in a panic induced hysteria, things like the Red Scare,Satanic Panic and War on Terror spring to mind. So I'm curious what do you guys think is going to be the next one in 10-15 years and from which party?

it's hard to say, since we're still pretty deep into the SJW shit right now. I think, on a national level, we're going to see advocation or normalization of pedophilia within the next 5 years. I think, on a larger scale, global warming and A.I. related shit will start being on the forefront even moreso than it is already.

I think the 2020 presidency is going to really fuck with the democracy of our country and I don't know how much longer it's going to last in it's current state.

There are a few criteria to answer this question:

1) what are people currently having fun with that hasn't yet been derided as Nazi/Alt-Right bullshit?

2) how closely can we tie it into gamergate?
Eh Personally I'm guessing the next Moral Outrage is going to come from the Right with the way the Pendulm's swinging. Probably something to do with Transgenderism or the Pedo advocates Just a Fag mentioned since they seem damn keen on pushing society's tolerance to it's limits these days.

I dunno, I'm just expecting a hard blowback on this shit in the coming decades like the Free Love movement got after the 60s.

after SJWism dies out
I really hope you're right and this fad dies out. This really has been the most annoying of all fads. I can't blame it for crazy people being crazy, as this is just an excuse for them. But mainly for the fact that mainstream entertainment has gotten a lot worse since then, and I personally can't stand the twitter "let's ruin your career" brigade.

I don't know if SJWism will ever really die out, but I'm willing to bet it will be another swing of the pendulum with some kind of conservatives leading the charge.
Of course it won't, no ideologies ever really die out they just slow down or speed up, but SJWism has been picking up speed in the last 8 years or so (especially the last 3) and shows no time of slowing, there's gonna be a bubble eventually and the longer it takes to arrive the larger the blow to SJWism ideology.

I don't think SJWism is going anywhere for awhile unfortunately. I don't have anything specific for what will replace it, but I think it will be some sort of parody outrage that spawns from 4chan or a similar site and gets picked up by the mainstream as being a serious thing. Something along the lines of minor attracted people or the "okay" sign being a symbol of white supremacy.

Yeah I guess I should clarify I mean once it drops out of the mainstream like the Religious Right did in the 2000s

Well, virtual reality stuff and sex dolls will by my guess be extremely popular in 10-15 years and they'll be lumped in with porn as the "reason why men don't do X anymore."

So it won't be much different from the bullshit right now. SJWs may die but genuine issues will always be blamed on something that's mostly male, video games, D&D, porn, rock'n'roll, violent movies, it will always be something that caters mainly to the guys. Anything new in the future has to fill the criteria of being mostly a 'guy-thing' and that thing will be the reason why young men are such an inconvenience to the society once again.

Name something that is mostly for women that's blamed for society's ills in the media, because I'm drawing a complete blank. Even fucking children's cartoons are a problem when men watch them; Bronies, weebs, all of them "virgin neckbeards living in mom's basement."

To your point, within the media you are correct. But one has to look at the rise of feminism as the cause of death of the traditional family. Empower women, I don't need a man, divorce rate of 40-50%, single parent families (primarily with the mother). I've only seen this addressed in a few places and it certainly wasn't the mainstream media.

Someone had mentioned "the pendulum swing." Personally, I don't see how it can swing much further to the left in the future than where it currently is. Trans kids, gay acceptance, me, me, ME and all my selfies, socialism the flavor of the day. They are running out of causes. I'd like to think (hope) we're in for a swing back to the right in the coming years and we see more of an emphasis on traditional family values (not necessarily religious ones).

Meh, I dunno. I figure I've only got a couple dozen more trips around the sun at most. Whatever we/society have "progressed" to at that point will be in my empty field of fucks given.

The spread of a nasty new STD that’s absorbed through the anus, causes frequent nocturnal emissions, and has no known cure. I don’t know who gave it to me but I’m waiting for the SJW shit to die down before I set it loose so it doesn’t have to share the spotlight.

Yeah but technically feminism is the party that's calling out the moral panic in everyone else's doing, isn't it?

I have speculated at autistic length on this very subject in the past
I find that each new cancerous social trend directly follows on from the previous cancerous social trend in some way.

SJW shit was in part a reaction against the transgressive edgelordy yet still progressive and liberal fedora shit of the immidiate late bush-post bush era (i.e. 2006-2012)

Transgressive edgelordy yet still progressive and liberal fedora shit was a backlash against the "MURICA AND JAYSUS! FREEDOM FRIES! ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH ME SUPPORTS TURRORISM!" schtick of 2001-2007

"MURICA AND JAYSUS! FREEDOM FRIES! ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH ME SUPPORTS TURRORISM!" schtick was not just a reaction to 9/11 but also to the clinton era PC movement and the ideas of a more unified and federalised world in the post cold war era. And so on into eternity

It is not merely a shift in political aligment from left to right or right to left, its a shift in tactics and methodology and the level of how absolutely cultish shit is. Say what you like about the fedora era or the weak PC shit of the clinton era, they were nowhere near as aggressively cultish and "IF YOU NOT WITH ME YOU ARE EVIL!" tinged as the SJW shit or the MURICA AND JAYSUS! shit at their nadir.

I think that generally speaking the cycle usually works like this.
a) reasonable progressives become the most popular cause
b) megalomaniacal and cynical and batshit crazy people join up and turn this cause into an autistic cultish shitshow
c) reasonable conservatives steadily become the most popular cause on the back of everyone getting sick of the crazystupid progressive cause
d) reasonable conservatives become the most popular cause
d) megalomaniacal and cynical and batshit crazy people join up and turn THIS cause into an autistic cultish shitshow
e) reasonable progressives steadily become the most popular cause on the back of everyone getting sick of the crazystupid conservative cause

However thanks to 9/11, the fairly chill (but visibly turning towards PC shittery) progressive wave of the late 90s was abruptly shifted to a immediate and sustained crazystupid conservative cause. Had 9/11 not happened its entirely likely that the SJW shit would have emerged during the middle bush era.

Using this metric I think its fairly reasonable to say that we are going to have a good 4-8 years of fairly chill centre right shit, followed by some kind of fundie/fringe political cause crazy train for another few years after that
As of now, I am torn between predicting an immediate heavy mainstream backlash bandwagon against SJW shit that will become quickly infested with autists, speds, and former SJWs looking to take some scalps to show allegiance to the new cause, or a more gradual slide from normie right wing hegemony to some kind of intrusive paleoconservative schtick. I have formerly predicted a revival in outright 80s/mid 00s style christian fundies but honestly I just dont see that happening given how utterly they have been driven into the underground of even fringe right communities.

I think it's a matter of "when" not "if" personally, all fads fade eventually. In terms of entertainment the heavily sanitized 1980s lead to the edgy 1990s which in turn lead to the more moderate 2000s. And socially the Religious Right spawned a huge counter movement which fed into the coming decades and regrettably helped cause the current SJW Left. And Trials by Twitter will probably stop the more Covington and KickVic style lawsuits happen that assign a cost to engaging in such witch hunts.

I've always been an optimist though.
