I’ve always had an insatiable appetite for knowing why people think the way they do. Not just what they think, but why they hold certain beliefs and pursue certain causes. Dr. Bastiat’s latest post rang true: I’ve no doubt that the Left, in general, hates the Right and everything we stand for. But I wanted to expand on his theory in a way that sounds even more ominous. The more I thought about it, the more I realized the behavior of the Left looks like hate, but the results they want are more frightening:
They are prepared to sacrifice all of us to the power gods—literally—because we are in their way.
Much has already been said about the destruction of our culture; our moral fabric has been torn. People want something to believe in, and depression and anxiety are rampant. And the Left realizes they must destroy us to fully realize their goals for power. I think they stir up hatred toward us with the Leftist masses, but I believe their elite pushes for power are cold and self-serving.
