    This is amazing stuff. Thanks for sharing.

    Have you read any psychology books like psycho cybernetics or the power of now?

    I think the left can be explained based on how those books argue that human consciousness always focuses on the “what if” and most often the answer it gets for that question is a negative consequence.

    e.g: Let uber go completely unregulated.
    Most people on hearing this will jump up with “womens safety” these days. That’s their new hammer.

    Previously it was the cabbie jobs etc. but that has now debunked because of how much most people hate the “arrogant” cabbies because they “refuse” to ply a route not profitable to himself for the “liberal”.

    This is a small eg. Any thoughts on that line of thinking?

    Rational thought is very, very hard – so it is natural to have most people fall for leftism.

    The trick in America was for smart (classical) liberals to institute the Constitution which even duffers like Trump can’t budge.
