There are always different ways to look at things. You can look at things from a different angle or from a different paradigm.
Take the human body. A doctor learns many things about you by looking in your ears, throat, eyes, taking your blood pressure, blood sample, etc.
Or he could do a CAT scan or MRI.
Or he could consider your health from a system perspective: endocrine system, nervous system, vascular system, etc.
Or he could cut you into 1″ slices and learn from that perspective, but that’s usually only done to cadavers, in my experience.
So to understand the Left and how it acts in the US, there are different ways to look at it and attempt to understand it.
I could say “them”, but the Left does aspire to Borg-like levels of collectiveness. And they do act as a group in a manner different than on the individual level, and I think it is useful, at times, to treat the Left as one entity.
So I can say that the Left is dened by its committed and earnest belief that everything in the world is Rule or Be Ruled, and they intend to Rule you.
I could note that the Left doesn’t believe in democracy at all, despite talking about it all the time, because to them, democracy is just a tool to get what they want. This doesn’t contradict that they fervently want to enact a Rule or Be Ruled paradigm everywhere, it’s just a different aspect.
I could also say, as I do in the title, that “the Left seeks one thing: Power” and still be fully accurate.
Or I could point out what they want the power *for*.
The motivation for the Left wanting power is they want the power to avoid unwanted consequences and, whenever and where-ever possible, shift all negative consequences onto their enemies…which is anyone that doesn’t join their hive-mind collective.
See, the Left doesn’t like consequences, accountability, or democracy. So they set up the CFPB to exist and act outside of federal control. That way, their loyal Leftist CFPB director could punish capitalism, reduce freedom, and fund Leftist activities without any way a pesky GOP POTUS or Congress could do anything to even slow it down, much less stop it. It is a travesty that it even existed this long, and it is a travesty that it isn’t a slam dunk the SCOTUS will strike this anti-democratic institution down.
The Left doesn’t want accountability for when its leaders engage in unethical or illegal behavior, but exploits its claims of love for democracy to protect its potential POTUS nominees. Because Trump is automatically wrong and anything he does automatically violates norms and is impeachable, and the only thing that ever needs to be done is to figure out how to characterize his statements or actions in a way that proves his perfidy, even if it is exactly like what every other POTUS has done in office going back several decades.
We really need to crush the Left, because they are going over the Cliffs of Insanity and taking the nation with them.
