Rise of the Victim Conquerors

Straying again into the political, which I don't like to do, I found this article at TakiMag to be fairly interesting. The author points out that the question, "Why?", needs to be asked a lot more often.

An excerpt:

Behold the “victim conquerors,” those who come to victimize in the name of victimhood, those who come to wreck lives and livelihoods in the cause of fighting racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, Islamophobia, and any other phobia Salon.com can cook up this week. These defensive aggressors are usually impervious to reason, and they live in hermetically sealed echo chambers to avoid it. And most of all, they hate being asked why. That’s the kind of question that can so disturb a “victim conqueror,” it can lead to a seventeen-year grudge. That one little word has a lot of power.
