If we boil it down to brass tacks, there's one key defining characteristic that places people on the Left, and that's the desire to do away with all hierarchy. Where does this desire come from? I would argue that its precursor is obvious: it's an inability to understand when hierarchy is legitimate, and therefore a belief that all hierarchy is unjust and unfair. When combined with an inherent and inflated belief in their own superiority and right to rule, this attitude about all hierarchy that excludes them from power explains the Left almost completely. In this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only podcast, I run through this idea that the key and defining ignorance of the Left, from which all Leftism flows, is the inability to understand the legitimacy in legitimate hierarchies. Join me and think through it with me!
