In the wake of the tragedies in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, gun control has once again entered the political discourse. Yet this time, the rhetoric takes a much more Orwellian turn. Privacy rights are now on the altar, soon to be sacrificed to the deity of progressive dogma surrounding gun control. And this time, Trump is the culprit.

Just as sure as the existence of Yin and Yang, the existence of left and right goes on. And seemingly, it is only getting worse in modern politics. Both sides of Western politics have become increasingly reactionary. The far right is fueled with hatred of far left-wing culture, going after all things “degenerate.” The far left is merely the other side of the exact same coin, hating all things “traditional.” They are both reactionary groups, and the result of these two reactionary groups reacting to one another is obvious: increased political polarization. Yet, while the far right has many issues, the far left may be more responsible for the destruction of contemporary politics.
