The New Intolerance

Aspen Fell Memories - Trestle Nestled Into Nowhere
The New Intolerance
by Michael Doyle

Critical race theory
Has a death grip on America's legacy
Turning politics into identity
And causing division to loom in our history

Big Tech pushes its aggression
Marking each day with a new transgression
Neutering language to shape theory
That offers nothing good and to the contrary

Critical theory rejects equality of opportunity
For all of the something more which is incendiary
Rejecting as it does America's true foundation
And with it, all of the principles of our nation

This tool of proposed, radical change
Destroys classical liberalism for something strange
Frankfort's embrace of maddening Marxism
And of the wanton and attendant pessimism

This weakens the bonds of needed public trust
Deconstructing the best of America as they feel they must
Acting as though we are the failure of world history
As they insist on keeping company amidst abject misery
