Alt-Left Insanity: Sciency Liberals Actually Believe In Witchcraft, Occult

Are you a good witch or a bad witch?

Answer yes either way and that might make you an alt-leftie. Marketwatch just ran an interesting piece headlined, “Why millennials are ditching religion for witchcraft and astrology.” It didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t know. Young people are embracing the occult faster than you can spell it.

    It makes them “edgy” and pisses off their Mom.

    They are actively rejecting the tenets of reality.
    Is this the final act of deconstructivism; Jacques Derrida’s revenge.
    If they don’t kill us all, this will be very exciting.
    Postmodernism is the grey goo “blob” that melts all it encounters into more still grey goo.

    I don’t worry about this too much. To the best of my recollection young people have always embraced the occult. Me and most of my friends were raised in nominally religious households but we all messed around with Ouija boards, held séances and visited abandoned houses at night in hopes of encountering a ghost. We all grew out of it.

    I don’t have a problem with thisper se and am far from being a leftist. Part of it I think is rebellion against traditional society, but if it goes no further it is not a threat. As for Astrology the real Astrology was much more a science than what passes for Astrology now. That real part is lost for good as far as I can determine, and I am just as ignorant of it as those who claim to practise it. Anyway I would be concerned if they were all converting to some totalitarian death cult like Islam than this stuff. Just my take, so take it or leave it.

      Isaac Newton was into alchemy and such like.

      I think the Chinese are best at astrology. It’s more interesting anyway.

      My horoscope for me in the newspaper today said that you’d say that. /sarc

    For those interested in what Tenach says … for the nation God wants to be different than all others, to stay clear of this stuff because it is real … life in big, this stuff leads to dark places and some of it to darker yet.

    Alt-lefties engage in alchemy. They try to turn their bullshit into gold.
