Well actually I agree with Land but the legacy is of course varied in nature and not all parties are influenced in the same way. It's exactly what I've been saying - they're clearly reactionary against these developments that have had a profound impact on wider society. You tell me postmodernism is so out of style and now quote an academic commenting on their legacy in 2019. This is a self-diss of the highest order uziq. Is it relevant or isn't it? Make up your mind you silly boy

it's just a small example of why you invoking these big terms is stupid and pointless, because you don't know what you're talking about when you drag them up.
