Liberals and Beauty
‘The great crime which the moneyed classes and promoters of industry committed.....was the condemning of the workers to ugliness....formless and ugly surroundings, ugly ideals, ugly religion....ugly relationships between workers and employers’. (DH Lawrence).
Liberals also hate humor, and have for many years. In the French 3rd Republic, even, the humorists were the conservatives. https://quillette.com/2021/01/07/the-death-of-political-cartooning-and-why-it-matters/
