I watch movies and read books with a conservative eye. Plus I’ve always liked to get an idea of the world the writer lived in. If we know what was happening in the writer’s world, we can usually spot where their reality bleeds over into their fantasy.

Simple. You don't read those books or see those movies, you misread them and misinterpret what's right in front of your eyes.

How can you give an Oscar to No Country for Old Men and not realize that nihilistic chaos follows the breakdown of cultural norms and good manners?

Simple. You just enjoy nihilistic chaos for its own sake, and never even consider what might have caused it.

The left, in general, think that they are addressing the world ‘intellectually’ and ‘progressively’. When I was barely in my 20’s I had some work acquaintances at a well known university who liked to wax philosophical. I came from a blue collar background, and wasn’t ever exposed to the Sherry-sipping crowd prior to then. That was the first time I heard the argument that Marx was brilliant and that communism was a good idea that just hadn’t been implemented properly. After awhile you come to realize that this is just the persona they’ve chosen for themselves. Sadly, they mostly don’t see that they are no more progressive or unique or intellectually enlightened than a bunch of 35-50 yr. old dead heads going to a concert in a van.

People who choose evil do so because they like evil. They like to think, talk, view, imagine, and do it.
