The wisdom of the left
We all know the left is wise and that when we can finally find it in ourselves to submit to them—it’s for our own good—that all will be well.
For example, we could all have good jobs working at the city/county/state/federal government memory hole (or high-speed rail facility) if we’d only let go our antiquated ideas about freedom, self-governance, and market economies.
And the left tells us the people are also wise, assuming the people mirror the positions of the left’s elites.
When we the people don’t mirror those positions, we’re too stupid to see things for ourselves and have to be limited to 15 ounce soft drinks, shaming women to breast-feed, or having bureaucrats and politicos disapprove the permits for the new Chick-fil-A.
Finally, remember the good gospel of the learned leftist: when a person is pro-life and pro-normal marriage, their ideas are hateful. Conversely, when a person is pro-abortion and pro-homosexual marriage, their ideas are…ideal.
