RESERVOIR PROGS: “They are fundamentally ungrateful, even enraged, with the way things are. By definition, a progressive always thinks we haven’t progressed far enough, and therefore is always unhappy with the state of things. The youngest progs, having been trained on campus to communicate this way, can scarcely make it through a meeting without raising their hands and announcing, ‘As a [fill in blank], I feel. . . ‘ as though their feelings are the most critical issue facing the group, rather than a matter for them to discuss with their loved ones and shrinks. . . . Progressives remain stuck in the angry-young-man stage indefinitely. The most eye-opening example of what Grim discusses on the left is at the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion group that barely acknowledged the Dobbs draft decision leak that would overturn Roe v. Wade and instead concentrated on its internal squabbling about whether to form a union. Like every other lefty-activist group Grim reports on, its escutcheon might as well be changed to ‘Entitled, Narcissistic Brats.’ Maybe Latin would make it sound a little better.”
