It’s been the incongruous M.O. of leftism since Kaiser Wilhelm’s day. Of course when they succeed, what you end up with is fascism and an intrusive state that has its nose in everything including the bedroom. Eventually these societies collapse and diminish the lives of a generation with it. Oh well, as far as they’re concerned. The idea was to show others how compassionate their intentions are.
Somewhere in the prism of the left wing love of violence, age, decadence, and laziness gave way to other forms of “revolutionary action” which seem to revolve around them seeming maternal, but doing everything possible to actually wreck things in society that actually work, and make their supposed constituency, the poor, more miserable.
