Liberals can’t afford a truce in the culture war.

I said this in 2012; six years and the current administration seems to prove me right.

Liberals winning the culture war is the same net effect as a truce.  Conservatives winning  is scorched earth policies toward liberal values.

Here’s why I said this (in a bit of parallel thinking with this Jezebel article):

1. If liberals win, conservatives can still do pretty much what they want with themselves and don’t lose much of their own personal liberty.

Example:  Nobody is forcing any straight folks to get married to members of the same gender.

2. If conservatives win, they’ve clearly stated that liberals will not keep large chunks of personal freedom and liberty.

Example:  Conservatives don’t want gay people to get married.  Ever.  (See: Texas, North Carolina)

3.  Therefore, liberals winning the culture war is the same net effect as a truce.
