Perhaps I’m confusing Left and Liberal yet again. To me, truly liberal allows for reasonable ridiculousness with banning reserved for truly over the tops.
I rarely see anybody refer to themselves as Left though. How can I identify a leftist?
sure seems that way. Two bad words everywhere I hang out on FB it seems is “the Left” and “Liberals”, along with various stereotypes.
Ah. So here, Leftbook is simply referring to any area containing notions of contributing something of some kind? Or idealism surrounding such things?
Or is it extremes of egalitarianism? Or solely economic egalitarianism is Leftbook? It’s one of those things that just when I got it figured out, I don’t. I never see Left or Liberal framed in positive terms, just “those are the things that are not me / not us”, and we must fight them”. – and the two groups, often overlapping, just seem like some kind of amorphous ‘thing’ that must be avoided like the Cheese Touch in that kids movie.
