Peter Hitchens said in yesterday's Mail that the left are "Pro EU, pro PC, anti Israel and fanatically believe in global warming". He summed it up pretty well for me, and while noting this for the future, my only comment was "Yes they do, but why?". I think I'll do an essay on this actually as have roughly in the past, but he's tied it down very well. It's actually saying they want powerful and unaccountable government (EU) lack of freedom of speech (PC) anti Jewish and gullible. In the same people. Feh!
As we all the want same things ultimately- food, comfort, friends and family etc, why would we then not just try and deny other pleasure to not just other people but ultimately themselves? Do they really want to live with power rationing, unelected politicians, Jews wandering the world whenever their country decides to expel them (currently being persecuted in ex-Soviet Union, as if that gets reported), being prosecuted or sacked for calling someone a spastic (not because they're insulting them but because the term has been changed), and basically leading a miserable regulated life much like under Mao?
Remember finally the leaders of all totalitarian states don't live like the people- the Soviet Communist Party, Fidel Castro, and any other throughout history, yet these citizens of democracy are calling for it here as well? Beats me, and if they were analysed would beat them as well once it dawned on them what they were wishing on themselves. Pain is pain and they haven't yet got the point
