i'm not convinced of anything other than a use of vague and charged political language. your criticisms of Crimestink are totally valid, but the kind of argumentation they use that you're referring to (riling up emotions based on the simpleminded good/evil binary to skirt critical thinking) is more properly labeled moralism or demagoguery, which, as you correctly noted, can be deployed by anyone at any place along a political array. this kind of agitation is perfect for LARPers, as you also correctly note. but again, it has nothing to do with being anti-Progress or wanting to turn the political clock back to some earlier golden age of rigid social hierarchies.
