How the left was lost

The left have two basic problems:

1. They have a misconstrued view of humanity.

2. They find solutions and then go searching for a problem.

With 1 it is easy enough to understand where they went wrong. In viewing humanity solely from a collectivist viewpoint they missed the importance of the individual, not so much failing to see the wood for the trees as failing to see the trees for the wood. In doing things for the collective it is necessary to compel the individual to act regardless of whether it is in their interest to do so. This skewed viewpoint will, inevitably, lead to authoritarianism because compulsion is the very weft to the warp of socialism.

Point 2 happens because socialists seeing that humanity does not fit their ideal, see problems that need bringing into line with their vision. This take on life shows so many problems that any mechanism of change, however useless or inappropriate, is seized upon and touted round to see whether it is possible to shoehorn the solution into one of the problems. Using it in some way is far more important to them than making sure that it is the right one for the job.

Hence we have ID cards being touted for everything from fraud to scrofula, "Oh, OK it wont work for that but I'm sure it will help endangered bees if we all carry one.". The EU is another example where we have our agent of change, (moving powers from a national to supranational level), and this will cure all ills. No analysis of where each power should be located for the best effect, just wave your magic EU wand and all the little EUfairies will fix everything.

Then, when it has been shown beyond all doubt that their ideology is flawed and they have used solutions that only make problems worse they understandably, (given human nature), get miffed when you point this out to them. Well despite it being human nature to throw a tantrum when things don't go as you hoped it is time for them to grow up, stop sniveling and look at things sensibly.

I hold out little hope that they will though.

With regards the Eu, I read quite often Mark Mardells blog on BBC website, and it never ceases to amaze me how many people from other countries state quite blatently, that once all powers and controls are handeed over to the EU, then we will have real democracy.

I just can't get my head round how they could be so fu***ng stupid!

Great post BTW!!

Very good points. I'd also put in my 2p and say that part of their problem is that many or their more intelligent points (feminism, racism etc. though they are hardly unique) are now common ground for all parties or just don't affect that many of us (unions). Hence the desire to look for examples that aren't there (i.e. racism has twisted to become an attempt to protect Islamism). Similarly unionism and human rights have twisted into a super union- the EU.

I think the real problem is that the leftists have only one solution which they apply, something in the manner of Procrustes and his famous bed, to every problem, real and imagined that ever dares rear its head.
