What makes you think SJWs aren't going to succeed in creating their thousand year SJW reich?
Personally I think we're going to see a revival of the Nationalist American Pride that defined the 1980s.Honestly, I'd say with the SJW's doing what they are currently doing and how they got to where they are now, I'd say we're due for another conservative backlash similar to the rise of Reagan in the 1980's, only with a more secular approach.
There's no way the Religious Right can ever come back to its former prominence outside of a few Bible Belt localities, and even those will start to secularize as the Boomers continue to die off of old age. Even the other conservatives and right-wingers don't like the Religious Right and Neo-Conservative types, as both camps ended up being an albatross around the Republican Party's neck in the Bush years in a manner similar to how the SJW's are starting to become for the Democrats now.
Honestly, Trump was just the earliest inkling of the pendulum swinging back, and if he gets re-elected in 2020 (and currently it looks very likely) this will only accelerate things further.
People assume that the current SJW moral outrage brigade is entirely astroturfed, and I would disagree. I do agree that it is partially astroturfed and a lot of the major Silicon Valley corporations are backing the plays of the SJW's in every way conceivable, but a lot of that is because of the relatively new field of Web 2.0 and the unfortunate fact that all the major companies are largely unchallenged monopolies.
I mean, if the Internet and corporate media landscape in its current form existed back in the 90's and early 2000's, I'd imagine we'd see similar astroturfing for the Religious Right and Neo-Conservatives, possibly silencing opposition to the War On Terror and similar issues. Others have pointed this out in other threads and honestly I am inclined to agree with them.
I am predicting the next moral outrage/moral panic will have its roots in a backlash against current SJW culture and the mega-corporations enabling them, and will most likely start to emerge in the mid-2020's to early 2030's, depending on the outcome of the 2020 election and maybe the 2022 mid-terms as well.
Personally, I am inclined to believe it will be like the Reagan backlash against the leftism of the 1960's and 1970's, but unlike Reagan, it would not be driven by Religious Right/Neocon types but instead be of a more secular populist or libertarian bent.
TL;DR-The next moral panic is anyone's guess at this point, but I'd figure the demise of the current SJW movement will be in the form of a conservative revival similar to the Reagan Revolution in the early 80's, only less Moral Majority and more "South Park Republican"
Do you mean humanity LITERALLY GOING EXTINCT IN 2030 BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING or some liberal president being elected and kicking the hornet's nest by provoking China, Russia, and North Korea into war?What if the end of the SJW movement will need some cataclysmic event like a war or economic crisis?
I hope WW3 will happen and we can go back to hating enemy evil imperialist superpowers and their ideologies.Do you mean humanity LITERALLY GOING EXTINCT IN 2030 BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING or some libshit tard president being elected and kicking the hornet's nest by provoking China, Russia, and North Korea into war?
Nay, people will still get offended over every crap, like gender-neutral air raid shelters or Whites getting the best atomic shielding.It's hard to have outrage culture in a post-apocalyptic world?
This is a pattern I've noticed, everything in American culture is a backlash to a backlash to a backlash staring since at least the end of WW2.I have speculated at autistic length on this very subject in the past
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 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
Does it sexually arouse Yaniv that he might go in literal history textbooks as tranny Hitler?If I could predict, I would say that the next moral panic comes from the results of the current transtrender -stuff. It will most likely take the shape of "How did we allow this to happen?" as it becomes more and more obvious that the current methods of gender-changing are extremely harmful to human health, and hopefully it will mean that those methods go the way of lobotomy and other medical practices which were at one point deemed equally valid forms of treatment.
But then again, it might be wishful thinking.
