Simon. “Liberalism is very faith-based in a sense that’s it’s not really based on reason so much that it is on a lot of propaganda that my generation is largely responsible for,” Simon says. “And now that it’s not working out, what do you do, how do you work it out, how psychologically … you sort of go into yourself and disappear.
