Liberalism thinks it appeals to the misunderstood kids who sat at a corner of the lunch room, all gothed out and nerdly and full of creativity.
In actuality, it appeals to the kids who did the same shit as everyone else, without distinction.
If your ego is bruised by life... invent a new religion: progress. Life is bad, everything is bad, until you add progress. This is why people say liberalism is a religion.
In order to have that progress, you have to toss out every order except progress... so away go the native cultures, languages and learning.
Replace them with inferior versions. Insist these are THE BEST EVAR.
Soon there is no way for people to succeed or even survive without allegiance to your progressive movement. As you take over power, repeating the right political dogma will be more important than having the right answer.
Soon, your self-fulfilling prophecy becomes true. You have replaced reality with a fantasy called progress. But because it was a fantasy, it breaks down when applied to reality, so you must summon the secret police to make sure you no one says anything bad about your Utopian, progressive, dogma state.
