It is my belief that modern leftism, be it called progressivism, communism, socialism holds within its very essence the seeds of mayhem and murder. I will attempt to explain why this is so, in the following few paragraphs.
Modern leftism is a religion, but a religion unlike any other which has heretofore taken hold of mankind.
The inherent destructiveness of leftism springs from its core religious tenet, i.e. continual human progress. For the leftist, history is God. By history I mean mankind and its strivings upon this earth. In the mind of the progressive, the arc of history, with occasional detours, plods relentlessly forward, and humanity, of necessity, improves.
Traditional religions promise a reward in the afterlife for a righteous life during one’s time on earth. But the left promises the reward will come on earth in the shape of a perfected human race in which all will live together, able to do what each wishes without conflict or material need. Anyone who disagrees with this vision is a heretic and must be destroyed in order to keep from hindering the righteous in their march to the perfect community. Only unanimity of belief, action and thought can bring perfection.
Rational people know that humanity is not perfectible and history is not deterministic. And contrary to the phony “diversity” which the left has tried to impose on people, humanity is in fact very diverse, but diverse in ways which displease the left. This being the case, there will always be disagreements between people as regards their beliefs, desires, wants and needs. Thus progressives will always have imperfect enemies who must be destroyed, and leftists will eventually be compelled to violence if they wish to remain true to their faith.
If one asks for proof of my thesis, one need only cast a glance back at recent history. It is well known that wherever the progressive/communist dream has been put into action, the result has been a torrent of blood and flood of lost lives. Conservative estimates of the number of lives sacrificed to the progressive nightmare run at 100,000,000. This number is confined to people murdered by their own progressive governments, not war casualties. One should stop and reflect upon that bit of information. Leftist governments took it upon themselves to eliminate one hundred million of their countrymen because those people did not fit with the leftist idea of the perfect, or at least the perfectible, man.
This is why leftism must be fought tooth and nail. Its insane metaphysical goal can never achieved. But in pursuit of its belief, the left must continue to destroy those whom it deems infidels, and to do so with a religious fervor previously never seen in human history. A fervor based on a complete misunderstanding of human psychology, of humanity and, in fact, of reality itself.
This is why it is so dangerous.
