The Irreducible Gimme


Leftism will always be with us, because it is not so much an ideology but a sort of evil seed planted in the heart of man. In my opinion, it truly is a genetic condition, as it is a reflection of the primitive economic system that prevailed in the archaic environment in which man's genome was selected. That primitive worldview is based upon group solidarity, scarcity, stasis, and envy, whereas the non-genetic ideals of classical liberalism are based upon enlightened self-interest, abundance, progress, and ignoring people's petty constitutional envy.
