On Monday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" I joined Tucker to consider the Democratic Socialist Party's weekend convention. Over the last twenty-four hours or so, there has been a lot of talk about mental illness in America and the need to recognize it early. But the Democratic Socialist convention is how the supposedly sane people in our society now talk: They're "triggered" by applause, they dare not risk assumptions about a fellow human being's preferred pronouns, they're offended by hitherto colloquial vernacular such as the word "guys", they mandate the use of "jazz hands", etc.
Such a world can no longer make assumptions about sanity. All culture need manners and mores. And, having cast off almost the entirety of social norms in nothing flat, the progressives have wound up simply enacting a new structure enforced even more rigorously than the old manners were.

~If you prefer me in non-visual formats, I'll be back on the radio north of the border with John Oakley on Toronto's Global News Radio 640 this Wednesday at 5pm Eastern. And on Friday I'll be hosting a brand new Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet.
We are very gratified by the support of all our Steyn Club members. On the other hand, if you were waiting a couple of years to see if we were in it for the long haul, we do welcome newcomers to our ranks, and you can find more details about the Club here - or, if you're looking for a present for a Steyn fan, don't forget our special Gift Membership.
