“Almost every matter of the moment boils down to the same story: The Left’s urge to narrow the bounds of public discourse and insist that ‘conventional wisdom’ unknown to the world the day before yesterday is now as unquestionable as the laws of physics.”
Mark Steyn captures the underlying narrative of the Sandra Fluke affair: The underlying narrative is that every narrative must be false. It is impossible to tell the truth. No, make that “it is inadvisable to tell the truth.” No, make that “there is no such thing as truth.” That’s the culture now. The only truth is that there is no truth. So it’s the Left’s duty to promote the outrage of the day and the contagion of the moment.
