A lot of people interested in politics observe the slow decline of society and become hopeless. They despair at monuments being destroyed or the principles of free speech being eroded. While understandable, this is the incorrect response.
It's almost a truism that SJWs win and conservatives lose. (To be clear, if you're using this site and oppose censorship, I consider you a "conservative" in this sense.) This is largely due to a difference in mindset.
Conservatives view themselves as holding a massive territory that shrinks by the day. SJWs view themselves as holding a tiny territory that they strive everyday to expand. Conservatives view themselves as the inheritors of a huge but decaying edifice. SJWs view themselves as the plucky rebels who will share new and revolutionary ideas with the world.
Conservatives feel they have it all figured out, and that they have nothing to prove to anyone. SJWs are constantly researching "proof" for their beliefs, thinking and discussing the best ways to spread them, and putting themselves in the public square spreading their ideals.
Which of these groups is more likely to have a positive view of the world and their future in it? Which will have an effective growth strategy, and which will be demoralized and afraid?
The answer is clear: it's the group that sees itself as small and new but growing that will succeed, rather than the group that sees itself as big and old and decaying.
So rather than see yourself as a helpless passenger on a sinking ship, view yourself as a nomad in a vast and mysterious wilderness. You don't know much about your surroundings, but you will explore until you find out. You don't know survival skills, but you will experiment and discover them yourself. There are monsters out there in the dark, but there are also many friends to be found. You don't have a shelter yet, but with the help of your family and friends you will build one. In the coming years, you can expand your shelter into a village, and then who knows? In a few decades or centuries, it might become a civilization.
