Andy Ngo
“At the moment, the threat of the far right is understood by the American public and actively countered by government, academia, media, and civil society. No comparable resolve or mass organization exists to counter the far left. Why? One explanation is the cultural dominance of the left. The political homogeneity in popular culture, academe, and urban centers of influence (e.g., New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, etc.) has produced a populace with severe blind spots.”
Andy Ngo, Unmasked: Inside Antifa's Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy

“Religious extremism is fatal to those who don't conform to its values, or remold or submit themselves to its 'principles'. It craves control and power - and power is the one tool that enables it to wreak its characteristic havoc, destruction and cruelty upon those it chooses to label as scapegoats. Giving in to extremists enables them and empowers them - and worse, it encourages them.”
Christina Engela

George Saunders
“But it came as a surprise to me, and I found it interesting, when this nice and presumably liberal woman suddenly lurched off toward, I guess, a sort of suburban fascism. In the end, she pulls herself back, but we might imagine other people who wouldn’t be able to, whether because of their disposition or the extremity of whatever it was they felt victimized by. What turns a person into an extremist? It often seems to originate with some small thing that happened to her personally, which then gets projected out onto the culture.”
George Saunders

“And I've noticed that the people in the ultraconservative extremist right, right now, have built a new metanarrative around America. And it started with the rise of the election of Donald Trump. But that metanarrative was anyone who does not see strength in America is weak. Anyone who opposes us is an enemy. Anyone who gets in our way will be trampled. We will not govern as a nation of equals. We will govern over and rule over people. Democracy is losing the metanarrative story.”
Malcolm W. Nance

Naomi Shihab Nye
