What is leftism?
Leftism is lying, in order to knocking over apple carts, in order to take fallen apples for oneself.
The bad news is that the left is in control of most Western apple carts, and leftists being leftists they cannot help themselves but knock them over their own apple carts. This is their nature, and it will not end well. But we already knew this.
The good news is that leftists, in the face of strength, will not be able to knock over your apple cart, just like a thief cannot rob a well defended house, just like the media cannot touch Donald Trump. Lies need to sneak past the truth, but if the truth is stated loud and clear, lies cannot be sneaked past. Leftists fold in front of strength (despite their strongest protestations to the contrary) and will go looking for greener, less defended pastures.
Lies come in many forms. There is no use trying to list all the lies, since the list of lies is endless. However, leftism has a recurrent core theme, since it is motivated by envy, covetousness, hate and jealousy of people who have apples – the rich, the successful, the happy. Thus we see a core lie, over and over, being that leftists tell us that these groups are evil and deserve to have their apples taken from them.
Why do people fall for leftist tricks? One part is that a minority of people will always have the majority of apples; not as skewed as the tinder market in which 20% of males bangs 80% of women, more like 10% of the rich owning 45% of the apples. The remaining 90% of people is apt to want some of those apples for themselves, are likely to at some level support leftist lies in favor of taking apples from the upper 10%. Which is why democracy is stupid.
The other part is that rightists are human, all too human. There exists no such thing as the perfect rightist; the perfect honest, upstanding, strong truth-teller. We all have weaknesses. The left seeks out these weaknesses, mocks them, seeks to abuse them. Sometimes they succeed, sometimes they don’t. That is the game. Thus we are always reminded of our limitations.
