    I think that it's because leftists think Economics is a hard science like physics.  

    They think they can DESIGN a market system.  They think that the surplus value of labour is a number they can calculate and pay to each worker. And they believed that the Soviet system was redeemable.

    They abhor the chaos that is part of every vital and living system.

    They are critics and analysts.  They're not interested in the mundane details of economics and management.  That's the stuff of petit bourgeoisie.

    Leftists want to control society in order to create their ideal utopia.  In their naive idealism they underestimate the complexity of very complex systems like economics and international politics.

    They are mainly interested in eliminating hierarchies.  Equality.  But hierarchies are based on competition - winners and losers.  The natural world is literally based on competition.  So it is not desirable to eliminate all hierarchies, since it is the force that drives literally the entire living world forward and makes it better.  So sometimes the leftists go too far in eliminating hierarchies, and it results in participation trophies.

    Hierarchies are desirable.  The right's job is to show the left the beauty & utility in hierarchy.  And this is why they always disagree.  But hierarchies become corrupt when the top of the hierarchy uses its power to behave tyrannically to those lower in the hierarchy.  The left's job is to point this out and try to fix it when it happens, without going too far and eliminating hierarchies completely or unnecessarily, which is the right's job to prevent.  So democracy is a self-regulating system of left vs right, and why dictatorships often fail.

    Ironically, sometimes the left reaches the top of the hierarchy and uses their power to create their utopia, and in order to do so they institute systems or laws which are tyrannical, and so the left themselves corrupts the hierarchy.  Lenin.  Stalin.  Trudeau? 😂

    Obama took Massachusetts RomneyCare and wanted to make it a federal system.

    Why not leave it for each State?

    Trudeau Jnr wants to make Quebec's daycare system a federal system.

    Biden wants to make Canada's pharmaceutical purchases a US system.

    I reckon that Leftists want to control.

    Yes exactly.  They want to create their utopia.

    Republicans are not white supremacist, 200 Black & Latino Republicans ran in the recent House primaries

    Could have fooled me.  Democrats and Republicans are basically enemies of the republic.  Follow the money.  Liberals and Conservatives are no different.

    in terms of overthrowing democracy, that is how America was born, the Founding Fathers vs Westminster

    They overthrew tyranny, not democracy.

    America is a republic, not a democracy

    A republic is a type of democracy.  One without a monarch as head of state.  America was a democracy, it's now a plutocracy.

    Your knowledge of history is pretty good, your knowledge of government & institutions is lacking.

    you are the retarded one, a lick spittle crony to Canada, which actually despises you

    Canada calls you a "racist white supremacist"

    They can hate me but they can never defeat me.  Please keep insulting me, it makes me stronger.  Their hatred makes me stronger.  Psychological callus.

    What is Multiculturalism? This is Multiculturalism:

    Raped and tortured by her own family because she refused to wear the hijab. A canadian juge decided to deny her the help she was asking for because he considered the violence is normal in a muslim family, and therefore, the justice system should comply to that religion and culture.

    How could you even think this is acceptable?

    That's a legal issue though.  Culture should not be an excuse to break the law.

    1. Mmmm... not really.  'Racism' maybe is a better term here.  Naziism is one particular thing.
    2. No.  No way.  This is a modern abuse of the term 'leftism' which amputates the original meaning.  Leftism was a thing 60 years ago, trans rights were not.
    3. Nobody hates themselves...

    1.  Let's be more specific though, let's call it...the far-right?  I dunno the exact label, but it's something bad, and the opposite of the far-left, which is also bad, but for which there is more sympathy, because hating the more powerful will always be more vogue than hating the less powerful.

    2.  The issues change, the ideology remains the same.  Left-wing ideology did not start 60 years ago, Marx was a leftist, so was Lenin, and Jesus.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-wing_politics

    Quote

    Left-wing politics describes the range of political ideologies that support and seek to achieve social equality and egalitarianism, often in opposition to social hierarchy.[1][2][3][4] Left-wing politics typically involve a concern for those in society whom its adherents perceive as disadvantaged relative to others as well as a belief that there are unjustified inequalities that need to be reduced or abolished.

    3. Are you sure?

    it's not governments

    what is being invoked is racial guilt

    literally the doctrine of the National Socialists

    Canadians are simply too ignorant of history to notice that they have invoked it

    When a majority race invokes racial blame upon a minority race it is called Nazism.  When a majority race invokes racial blame upon themselves (self-hatred) or the majority race invokes racial blame upon a majority race it is called leftism.

    Maybe the majority race will hate themselves so much they will commit genocide against themselves, and the minority races will join in.    But this would never happen...

    Only two kinds.

    The kind almost universally squelched by the Leftists in power

    And the kind of evidence which is analogous to the evidence used to prove the existence of black holes in outer space.

    Is your mind capable of discussing a lower level of the details?

    If you actually believe Trump suggested we drink or inject bleach, I would respectfully advise another thread to visit.

    🙂

    I asked for evidence.  Which means hyperlinks.  I'm an open-minded guy, but also logical.  In order to believe his claims I need evidence.  I'm not a man of faith.  I don't believe that Jesus rose from the dead or that Trump had the election stolen from him without evidence.  So if you have evidence, please post it.

    The truth is slowly becoming obvious.

    Trump was a MAGNIFICENT  POTUS.

    In years to come, how will you explain how you got him wrong?

    Were the enemies of America that smart that they hid themselves from your view and you couldn't spot them or recognize what was being done to him?

    Or were you just not bright enough to sense you were being used by America's enemies?

    Or was it a matter of lack of good values, i.e. that you were raised so poorly that you would root for the BAD guy and attack the GOOD GUY?

    Not a troll question.

    I really can't understand  how you could hate and bash Trump.

    If you are an America-hating foreigner, you can get lost.

     

    Do you have evidence that the 2020 election was rigged?

    Why would he NOT use a show of NUMBERS to try to influence those in the Deep State to do the right thing?

    Trump authorized the National Guard on Jan. 4 to be in position as soon as the local authorities, Mayor Bowser or Spkr. Pelosi, issued a request. 

    Why would DJT authorize a coup d'etat where he knew the Guard would be?

    Why would he send the guard if he knew the coup was going on?

    You do realize that pressuring Pence to not certify the election results he wanted to overturn is a coup attempt right?  And same with pressuring a high ranking Georgia official?

    not sure why you come to that conclusion

    the Nazis were Nietzschean, their mantra was : God is dead

    Republicans are the opposite

    the Nazis were Malthusian, they believed that getting rid of people was the solution by mass euthanasia

    Republicans are the opposite

    the Nazis were anti-capitalist, running an utterly centrally planned economy

    Republicans are the opposite

    the Nazis engaged in draconian speech banning

    Republicans are the opposite

    the Nazis ensured the population was completely disarmed and at their mercy

    Republicans are the opposite

    the Nazis asserted the Jewish Bolshevik Conspiracy, blaming the Jews for Communism

    Republicans are the defenders of the Jews, American Zionists

    only the Republican Party recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel

    Republicans are literally the bulwark against National Socialism

    Republicans crushed the Democrat slave holders, led by Abraham Lincoln

    then Republicans crushed the Nazis too, led by Dwight Eisenhower

    then Republicans crushed the Soviets, led by Ronald Reagan

    De Oppresso Liber

    You forgot racist white supremacist hyper-nationalist democracy overthrowers sprinkled with retardation.

    They're not arresting people, but if they're gathering intelligence, and sending info back to the Chinese gov't to help make a case against these people, or seize their assets abroad, and threatening/intimidating people, they're effectively police to a great extent. 

    The FBI and RCMP do a lot of threatening and intimidating where they can't get away with making arrests. 

    They're basically goons that intimidate based on the report.  They're foreign agents operating on our soil to the detriment of Canadian citizens.  They have no legal authority to arrest them on our soil.  They need to be removed.  But they will just start operating out of some consulate.

    the Republican Party freed the slaves

    brought the Gilded Age robber barons to heel

    sent the troops in to defend Civil Rights

    defeated the Soviet Union

    and now are the only bulwark against the Globalist elites anywhere in the world

    the Conservative Party of Canada meanwhile, are just lick spittle cronies to the Liberals

    you deserve the governance you get in Canada

    MAGA

    The GOP has been filled with mostly idiots since at least Dubya Sr.

    Knuckle-dragging elites vs globalist elites.  Hmm how do I want to ruin my country?

    I was one of those kids on TV singing and waving Confederation flags back in 1967, they flew us to Ottawa to meet politicians and everything, and I certainly remember feeling pretty nationalistic but it didn't last, like religion it just withered in the face of reality and where my heart and head took me.  One of the reasons I feel suspicious about nationalism is seeing how nationalistic some of my First Nations friends can be.  I mean I get it and see how feeling it is such an important step for these folks but I'd rather get nationalistic about our planet and species myself. That's something I could get behind.

    Anyone else see that story about the asteroid we nailed with a DART in hopes of learning how to protect our planet? 

    I think there's a happy medium between ashamed self-hatred or apathy/indifference vs blind chauvinist hyper-nationalism.  I think it's healthy for people to know something about their own country.  Knowing about it doesn't mean glossing over the bad stuff.

    And glad to know you aren't crazy.  I know that you aren't one of the wackos.

    they are ethnonationalists tho

    like I dated a Mohawk girl, and she was a Maracle, Mohawk royalty

    she was stunningly beautiful, she was highly educated, an activist

    but I couldn't be her boyfriend for more than a May September romance in Toronto

    because the Mohawks would never accept me as a suitor for one of their women

    just like the ethnonationalist Quebecois,

    the Indians simply do not want to submit to the globalized Anglo-American culture

    je me souviens

    I think that's fine if they choose that, and I understand it.  But also know that if they wish to remain isolated and rural with traditional economies without much industry then they'll likely remain poor like they did pre-Columbus.

    the Indians survived those diseases

    the Indian population is the fastest growing in Canada

    it's not smallpox which is holding them back

    they simply don't have economic power, having been dislocated off their lands, by farming on an industrial scale

    Yes, indigenous also didn't have an alphabet/literacy pre-Columbus, and many still live in isolated rural communities.  Imagine putting illiterate European settlers in the middle of rural nowhere, away from cities, services, and industry?  They also would remain very poor and live like hillbillies.  Then add intergenerational trauma of disrupting their way of life/culture and kidnapping their kids to put in residential schools.
