In my view the basic function of liberal (specifically Marxist) doctrine is to deny reality.
The specific fact of reality that absolutely must be denied under all circumstances is that each of us as human beings has right to say no.
No to the demand for obedience.
No to the demand for material support.
No to the demand for power over our lives.
Liberals, and the left in general, are parasites on human society. Without the power to compel others to materially support them the members of the left would be compelled either to become rational and productive beings or literally die off.
And it is not enough for the Left, especially their leaders, to be materially supported. They must also feel secure in their status as the masters of the productive. They must stage spectacles of mass obedience to create and reinforce their feelings of security.
The parades on May Day and anniversary of the local party's ascent to power.
The hours-long speeches that must be listened to with total attention and applauded with the greatest of enthusiasm.
And don't be the first to stop applauding when the leader speaks, that's disloyal!
To the left, every word of dissent or refusal is a sentence of death. And every pistol and rifle in the hands of a private citizen is a weapon pointed straight at their heads.
Someday, we're going to have to pull the triggers.
