Why do you think something has 'gotten into me'?
Of those three on your list I have heard of one of them - Marcuse, but
*only* because my Right Wing history professor at UCSB made the entire
chapter on the 60s about him. Otherwise I would have never in my life
have known of his work - especially since he died 35 years ago.
As for being under a rock, that's exactly my point. For myself and
every other person I have heard or read express Progressive views, I
do not see that they take their cues from these academics, which they
are usually unaware of. By contrast, many is the time that I will
debate with a Right-Libertarian and it is only a matter of time until
Von Mises is brought up (talk about idolatry). Progressives are people
whose parents didn't beat them and intimidate them, so they aren't
afraid to think for themselves, and they aren't afraid of letting go
of that kind of patriarchal model of control. Everything that you all
have been saying here is only making me more and more clear on the
lack of real substance or ideas behind Conservativism. It's 'Pay no
attention to the man behind the curtain!' writ large. The more
Conservative ideas are understood, the more Progressives there will be.
Try this example of modern neo-marxists:
Try listening to Rush Limbaugh for 1 hour and think of him as Racheal
Maddow's Twin brother.
To be truly balanced, one must practice balance. Consider all views
as if they are a p.o.v. of God. The trick is to understand that all
points of view do not need to be finitely mutually consistent!
