Commentary: As It Always Has Been, the Only True Cause of the Left Is Power

Why do so many liberal climate-activist grandees fly on private jets? Or why do those who profited from Black Lives Matter have a propensity for estate living? Or why do the community-activist Obamas prefer to live in not one, but three mansions?

The answer is that calls for radical equity, “power for the people,” and mandated equality are usually mostly sloganeering for those who enjoy power and the lucre it brings, and their wish is to augment both for themselves. The result is that the issue du jour of mandated equality often becomes secondary if not irrelevant. There is neither fear of inconstancy nor hypocrisy, given the central theme that governs a leftist party line is political utility — or the ends of power always more than justify the hypocritical means used to obtain it.


  1. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.” ― George Orwell, 1984


  2. The Progressive "elites" actually believe they are Gods and they have the right and duty to control the "lower beings" for their own good. They are exempt from the rules they demand the lower beings follow. It's a plain and simple process of Human Nature's survival of the fittest but on a human "ability to reason" level.

    1. "believe they are Gods and they have the right and duty to control the "lower beings" for their own good." I believe you missed the point of the article. The point of the article is that "for their own good" is a straight up lie. You'd be more accurate if you said "they believe they are gods, and can do whatever the fuck they want, regardless of what happens to all the insignificant "people" below them. They believe that the little people don't matter and never did."

      I.E. They believe in the ancient right of kings to rule over, oppress, and toy with lesser beings for no reason or any reason at all.

      Merrian-Webster should swap out their definition of a 'psychopath'...

      Well done sir. joe tentpeg

  3. 1 round trip private jet trip across America is the same carbon footprint as a cattle farmer who feeds 1600 people for an entire YEAR.

    Let the elites use zoom k?
