And here I thought it was the other way 'round. I kid I kid.. the problem the "left" has is that its an umbrella term so broad it's members can tell each other apart with such ease because it covers everything from a simple planned economy, to stateless societies and single state dictatorships. Communism, socialism, anarchism, social democracy, democratic socialism, eco socialism... Take your pick. I'd love to see "the left" spoken of only in the contex of planned economic policies but that would be too hard wouldnt it. Seems today, being leftist means you are pro choice, not religious, PC pro rights and bonus points if you cal yourself non bnary. All those wolnerful buzzwords that sell clicks.
