The news has been amazing lately. There are extreme pro-abortion laws passing in some states. Government (your) money proposed to teach boys how to be drag queens in libraries which is classified as “art.” A local government working at closing a Catholic school for hiring teachers and teaching what the Church has always believed and taught. The Olympics are apparently going to allow transgender (former?) men to compete against women. And as you well know, it is far crazier than this out there. Some of the things coming out in the news is the stuff that, when I was a kid, would have been thought ridiculous if used in a work of fiction.
Now, hold on to your hats - I am not entirely sad about this radicalizing of these issues. In fact, I hope that they continue to get wilder and more extreme. As it has always been said, “The Devil will out himself.” In other words, these types of movements are never satisfied with how they impact our culture. They always stretch to the extreme and logic consequence, which tend to be destructive and deadly. Eventually (and I believe that I will see it in my lifetime) society, having to cope with and clean up the mess being caused by our world right now will begin a radical (and I hope not too far) swing in the opposite direction. There is my hope.
