(Before It's News)

I don’t care about being “mainstream.”

This is largely due to my historicism. There was no such thing as the “mainstream” in America until the 1960s. We didn’t think of ourselves as a “Nation of Immigrants” until the 1960s. We didn’t care about accusations of racism, sexism, nativism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia or Islamophobia. We didn’t care about accusations of “white privilege” either.

All the various -isms and -phobias which are secular sins against the “mainstream” were created and popularized by the media in the 20th century. In fact, most of them don’t go back further than 1950. They don’t have anything to do with the substance of traditional Western morality.

You’re not a “good” or “bad” person because you reject the “mainstream” which is actually nothing more than a cartel of mass media outlets which didn’t exist a century ago:
