When Left-wing Politics Becomes a Substitute for Religion
Spring has barely sprung, but this much can already be said for 2017: it’s a bumper year for activism. On April 29, in honor of Donald Trump’s one hundredth day as president, 300,000 Americans marched in support of “jobs, justice, and climate action.” (That’s a quote from the website of the “People’s Climate Movement.” Do not ask me to connect these dots.)
The Climate March is just the latest installment in a seemingly endless string of marches that have been going on from January through the present. With the warm weather upon us, it seems unlikely that they’ll taper off now.
