Infantilism, cont.

In the way that only he can, Mark Steyn reports on the state of Connecticut's "Diaper Need Awareness Day".

Only just the other day I mentioned that "infantilism" is fast supplanting "liberalism", "socialism", and even "communism" as the organizing principle of the Democrat Party.

Don't misunderstand, infantili-zation is always a direct consequence, even if it's not intended, of any and all collectivist ideologies.  What's new for the Democrats is that instead of hiding or trying to explain away the consequences of their principles in action, they're now embracing them openly, accepting them as a key part of a new ideology, infantil-ism.

They've decided, it would appear, that we Americans are at long last mature enough to handle it.
