I am always amused when I hear far left types talk. They seem to suffer from Canibisism the mistaken belief that they can save the world while reading Chomsky and Marx and living lives that are akin to Cheech and Chong films.
Far left types seldom have real jobs or life experiences . Their leaders are protected by tenure and the creation of accademic gulags. Lets see racial diversity of the student body is paramount. However Greens, Reds and Anarchists are exponentialy over represented. Yet the sole place one might encounter a conservative is the economics department or in the business sections. Commies could teach classes in creative corruption.
There is a cure for Canibisism. Get a real job and work with the people you claim to speak for. Go to a housing project or a rural town and see the abject failure of paternalistic socialism. See the lines of Canadians at the local doctors , gas station and booze shop. They get their tobacco at the nearest Indian reservation along with entrepenurial locals.
A real job with the challenges of a spouse and kids are the cure for this malady. What do the locals think of the far left sacred gas taxes and hunting paranoia ?
The locals here think the far left is out of touch. Go to a black church and talk about Marx to a black pastor and you might get the fear of the Lord in person.
The truth is the far left has never been in touch with the real people they claim to speak for. Real people are not perpetual victims and a saftey net without the dignity of self reliance is "Progressive " slavery.
