For perspective, this would be like declaring ideology politics dead during the Russian Revolution.
Was Russia a multi-ethnic empire? Yes. Did that play a major role in shaping the ideological struggle, as Communist Jews targeted Russian Christians? Yes. Nevertheless, calling the Russian Revolution non-ideological would be inane.
Ideology politics are dead. Idea wars are reserved for homogeneous societies, not multiracial, multiethnic, multireligious, war zones. The culture wars are intrinsically interidentity, and anyone who is still babbling about Left and Right, or Liberal and Conservative, is simply demonstrating the extent to which they fail to understand their own reality.
Social Justice is Satan's Justice.
The Left Singularity is at least two religions: Progressivism and Communism. And the Right isn't even that cohesive. VD is simply wrong, again. "Left" is the correct description for a movement defined more by a direction than anything else. "Right" is the correct description for everyone who refuses power's call.
Bioleninism has combined left singularity with Glubbian imperial decline, creating a powerful entropic force.
Certainly the people babbling about Left vs Right or Liberal vs Conservative, to the exclusion or racial and religious dimensions, are civnat fools.
More generally, "Left" and "Right" are imperfect terms. It would be more accurate to call them Ruderal (socialist), Stress-Tolerator (libertarian), and Competitor (fascist). "Left singularity" is similar to a ruderal population boom.
Part of me hoped that VD would be the superintelligence exception to the rule that without Cyborganize-level cognitive augmentation, everyone is a fool versus postmodern complexity. He wasn't.
The cycle of history will continue unless humans augment. Or it would, if AI didn't end it.
