>first and second wave are quite different from "third wave", which is pretty much just misandry and victim-mongering
Not much difference, then, in nearly two centuries.
>a society based on free thinking/expression, freedom of speech, actual equality under the law, and due process.
Advocate for such a society, and see how fast the self-identified "Left" or "Marxists" brands you Right-wing, reactionory or both!
Incidently, the reactionary position would either ensure our freedom or at least keep the penalty small, so there's room for doubt regarding progress.
