The only takeaway from this that the usual crowd had was "JOHN C WRIGHT BELIEVES IN WITCHES TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD."
They have, once again, missed the point.
I have taken it upon myself to translate a great essay into small words, to be understood by small people. I hope I am stupid enough to live down to the task.
The following, believe it or not, contains spoilers for Love at First Bite.
Leftism as it stands today has always been a religion. Don't believe me? Modern Leftism bases most of their beliefs in your basic, boilerplate socialism of the Russian kind. And, since the Russian revolution took a lot from the French revolution, there is a lot of blood as part of the Leftist faith, and a lot of anti-theist secularism.
Leftism has kept up this tradition, perhaps even better than the Soviet Union ever did. Communism killed a hundred million people in the last century, over the course of 70 years.
Just to highlight this one more time. That's a hundred million. 100,000,000 dead.
In the United States, we're up to, what, fifty million aborted children and counting? Over the course of less than fifty years? We keep that up, abortion will have wiped out more people than Communism along the same amount of time.
What what do you want to consider a group of people who are hip deep in blood and want to dive in some more? I think witches is a good summary, don't you?
But JCW wants to go deeper.
But the essential nature of a witch, as she was portrayed in fairy tales (which contain a good deal more sense than newspapers) was of a withered, childless spinster: a woman with nothing to offer the community, but whom age and curiosity had opened the secret properties of plants and stars and other things easily turned to venom.
