The Song of the Hive: Thomas Sowell Part IV — Fact Free Liberals

SEE HERE  "The vision of the left is not just a vision of the world. For many, it is also a vision of themselves -- a very flattering vision of people trying to save the planet, rescue the exploited, create "social justice" and otherwise be on the side of the angels. This is an exalting vision that few are ready to give up, or to risk on a roll of the dice, which is what submitting it to the test of factual evidence amounts to." — What the left amounts to is a bunch of delusional people who prefer their delusions to the truth. 

"Saving the planet" is code for all their programs that recycle or foster alternative energy, force people into plastic cars, and generally rail against such things as carbon dioxide when in fact the recycling is largely pointless, the alternative energy is extraordinarily expensive and only augments slightly what is already in place, fossil fuel burning energy, and their cars are death traps and carbon dioxide is innocent and in fact an essential plant nutrient.

"Rescue the exploited?" is code for stealing from those whose work has produced wealth to give it to those who often because of the very programs the left has supported earlier are trapped in a cycle of dependency.  Their "War on Poverty" has spread poverty more effectively than doing nothing at all would have done.  Before that war the poor were slowly coming out of poverty.  After it started they became trapped in the entitlement and victim mantra culture that resulted.

"Social justice" is code for injustice practiced by the anointed.

But you can't tell these people anything for they sit in the hive of their own making humming to one another the mantras which sing the hymn of how wonderful they are and how everyone else is evil.  Meanwhile they have spread more evil in the world than any other single force.
