Americans Are Becoming Ideologically Possessed

Dylan Palmer | @dylanpalmer22

On a fundamental level, our political allegiances are formed and determined by our personality and temperament. Human personalities are partly inherent and partly socialized, but they will nevertheless lead us to our instinctive reactions to a wide array of political affairs. In the absence of thorough personal research on an issue, it is our temperament that guides us to an opinion. It’s no sin to have strong values that inform one on how to act. However, overarching values applied in frivolous manners don’t allow for much distinction to individual circumstances.

Years ago, I was charged with political fervor and revolutionary zeal and landed myself some rather important volunteer positions within the Libertarian Party. I became a leading member of their social media teams. I was a Facebook inbox manager, as well as a leading Twitter content manager.

I learned how to professionally manage a social media page, how to professionally communicate with people asking important and sometimes thought-provoking questions, and how to interact with co-workers in a professional environment. I have always and will always attribute many of the skills I have now to where I began: working with the Libertarian Party at both the local and national levels. It’s hard to overstate the importance that year or so of work had on me.

The wage gap study shows that men and women making different choices is really what accounts for the gap.

America’s mainstream media was given an inch – and it took a mile. For years now the dominant left-wing cultural hegemony has reigned freely. From widespread social media bannings to promotion of blatant falsehoods by internet blogs, the mainstream has been quite successful in their actions. But in the case of Nick Sandmann and the Washington Post, this backfired.
