Let's not forget how they allowed the mockery and abuse of Etika's mental health to go on in threads that documented his obvious unwell state, too. If we were to be rude yet honest, a great deal of this forum is "feel good leftism," so long as it doesn't shake the boat of comfortability. A real "leftist" take is understanding if you're not shook you're not seeing the depth of suffering and injustice that practically breathes around oneself. How many people, on this very forum, are foolish enough to think the dystopia in America is just rooted in Donald Trump? I fear a too large body of people. That's part of the feel good behavior: thinking if we just get rid of him it ends. Depending on who and how we get rid of him, we may just as likely sow the seeds to see a successor of his come in. In fact, I believe a Biden presidency would do just that, because by aiming to be a time freeze, you don't actually solve or change the conditions and states of affairs that allowed a neonationalist to be normalized; you treat him like a meteor that crash landed onto the planet. This is the whole "return to normal" nonsense in action, because people . It's a slogan for the white moderate, to trick them. People think May 2015, a month before Trump went down the golden escalator, is the target to aim for. This was a period of profound misery. And for the record, as I've said in the past, there's also a problem when the oldest person running is the one the youth have faith in. It speaks to an of disease, not just an Orange Man being bad. Leftist criticism of it has often been the harshest yet most honest method of critical pedagogy we have on the matter.
