Spirit of ’76 on "Leftism"

Spirit of ’76 with a very succint analysis of what it means to be a “leftie”.

Leftism is not about having any form of rational ideology, just a belief in your own highly smug moral superiority, with a matching condescending attitude, a refusal to consider anything but the most simplistic ideas, and a willingness to say absolutely anything, no matter how dishonest and contradictory, to gain power and force your will on others.

Sums it up pretty well, I reckon.

  1. The thing about libertarian politics is that it’s proponents, by logical necessity, promote subjecting their ideas to rational critique. That’s what libertarian politics is all about – reason. Many people (classical liberals, libertarians, anarchists, even centrists) have different views of what is objectively a correct interpretation of the real world, but they still engage in productive debate using reason.

    Statist politics rejects reason as a necessity. That’s why it’s pointless to bother engaging in debate with lefties (and “right wing” statists) because by definition its a waste of time. A debate requires the parties involved to side with reason. Thus its actually impossible to have a logical debate with someone who rejects reason.

    Statists are a waste of time.
