The Myth of the Benevolent Left

Signs Of The End Of Civilisation As We Knew it Number 42: The Rise Of Screeching Loony-Left Wing Insanity.
There is an important election coming soon in the United States, and the demagoguery regarding socialism, welfare, religion, foreign policy, terrorism, the poor and the rich, once again pervades the minds of the myopic masses as they often do. But if you’ve had the misfortune of holding your ear to the media, social and otherwise, there is a common misconception among the misinformation that is ubiquitous like air, but on a second whiff, breathes more like piffle. It seems that the most vocal advocates of leftist policies (my personal friends among them, bless their hearts) tend to imply they are morally superior than those who lean more to the right of them. The claim is made even more dubious when it is further implied that merely voting for the left is itself an act of compassion, when in reality they haven’t done anything more than what they’ve always done, which is to say, very little.
