(Conservative Review) -- We all know that the radical far-left craves power and control. When we accept this premise, nearly everything these leftists do is easily explained away. Their love affair with higher taxes is deeply intertwined with their need for control over the allocation of resources in our economy. Their obsession with government-run or government-managed healthcare is forever attached to their desire for control over both the supply and demand of doctors, hospitals, and healthcare services. Their infatuation with government-run education via the failing public education model is driven by their craving for control over the entire education sphere from Pre-K through college.
This desire for control also explains the organizations, people, and entities on the radical-left’s enemies list (During my recent guest-hosting appearance on the Mark Levin Show, I covered this topic in relation to the radical Left’s desire to stigmatize people who use the word “terrorism,” rather than the terrorists themselves). So, who are the members of the far-left’s enemies list and why are they there?
The essence of control for a big-government far-leftist is the ability to say what the rules are and to then use the government’s monopoly on use of force to make sure those rules are followed. This requires faith in the rule-makers to work.
