A description of American society in a microcosm.

Leftists burn down the Hugos.

//What the Puppies represent, say organisers, is the insistence of fans and many writers themselves that awards should be judged solely on quality, and not become backslapping circlejerks for social justice groupies and their favourite minority of the month//

And this:

//The facts of this case are the same as in gaming and in every other industry that social justice warriors touch. They do not care about art forms. They do not care about science fiction. They do not even particularly care about talent. They care about enriching and ennobling themselves and their friends, and pushing a twisted, discredited, divisive brand of authoritarian politics.//

That last part is fascinating from a historical perspective.  The history of the Communist/Leftwing movement involved infiltration of a non-aligned organization, the "coordination" of the organization toward the objectives of the Communist movement, the revolt of the membership, followed by the departure of the membership, and a final denouement where the organization exists as a shell and the movement looks for its next victim to wreck.

It seems like this tendency is continuing.
