Political crypto-religion

From Prof Paul Gottfried, the rare Jew among the New Rightists:

“The Post-Marxist Left represents… a distinctive political religion. It should therefore be understood as a would-be successor to a traditional belief system, one parasitic on Judeo-Christian symbols but equipped with its own transformational myths and end-of-history vision.” The Strange Death of Marxism

I note, of course, my rejection of the fraudulent construct “Judeo-Christian,” but otherwise his point is very true. Progressivism is a religion, as fully missionary, imperialist, dogmatic and theocratic as any that has ever been. Any existing religious group that adopts equality, human dignity and rights, etc. as “values,” will find themselves metasticized into mere chaplains of these Neo-Maoist jihadis.
