Understanding The Perspectives Of Progressive Historians

Of all persons, comedian Evan Sayet nails it:
The modern liberal [including historians and academics], there’s something about his ideology that leads him to invariably and inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right, the lesser over the better, the ugly over the beautiful, the profane over the profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success.”

If no religion, no culture, no person, if no behavior, if no form of governance – if nothing is better than anything else, then success is unjust. Why should a person, a nation, a government, religion succeed, if it’s not better than any other? So that liberalism says everything is equally good, man, coexist – doesn’t make everything meet in the middle. It makes the better, bad.

Failure as proved by nothing other than the fact that it has failed is proof positive that some injustice has taken place. Why should a person, a country, a  nation, a business – why should it fail, if it’s not worse than anything else? And by the same logic, just by extension,  if success and failure are proof of injustice, then great success and great failure is proof of great injustice, and at a certain point, great and sustained success and failure – 6,000 years of Jewish survival, thriving when it’s not oppressed; America, the longest surviving and most successful democracy – you wonder why they hate America and Israel most? . . . Great and sustained success and failure is proof positive not just of great and sustained injustice, but that this injustice is intentional, and part of an evil conspiracy.
And, as we know, this "great injustice" is why so many academic historians find it necessary to use their "craft" in "reforming American society." If you keep this in mind when reading many (not all) academic history bloggers and writers, you will understand why they write what they write and why they see every issue as a nail. All they have in their toolbox is a hammer. They truly have tunnel vision. What's so amazing is they actually believe that on one sees this.
