Where Are the New Heroes of the Revolution?

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

There are few progressive icons past or present who by the rules of the revolution would not be canceled out. Cultural revolutions are suicidal, nihilistic, and incoherent. Those who survive such cannibalism do so by arbitrarily exempting their leaders from their own rules of mandated purity, anti-Western cant, and no statute of limitations. If there is any coherent message in this otherwise incoherent summer, it is that a few thousand wannabees have launched a revolution with the full expectation that their own careers will be thereby enhanced in the most remuneratively Western and capitalist fashion possible.
