Terrible Modern Trends: Virtue-signaling

When I was a young man living in Seattle, I noticed something super annoying that folks including many of my friends did out there- frequent ostentatious displays of how liberal they were. This self-congratulatory liberalism, as I called it, annoyed the hell out of me. It took the form of voting for Ralph Nader or covering your car with bumper stickers.

Well, virtue-signaling has gone global. Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau are the best political examples of this. But look around you. Isn’t it everywhere you turn?

And look at your own actions. What are you signaling to others?
