The False Left
(and the True One)
Lefty activism isn't what it used to be. Many of us have been fighting for the exact opposite of the things the Left used to fight for.
We used to fight against racism, against segregation, and against government discrimination based on race. We envisioned a world where laws don't mention races. A world in which your race has no bearing on your right to speak, or the value of your opinion. A world in which, to paraphrase Dr. King, "a person is judged not on the color of his skin, but on the content of his character."
We believed that people were individuals - not categories.
But now, it's the opposite. We're supposed to be in favor of rigid categorizations by identity, with entirely different sets of rules, different standards, and even different laws, for different races, and different levels of respect for opinions based on the race and/or gender of the speaker. We're supposed to see a person's categories and classifications first, and his or her individual choices second.
And it's not just on issues of race. The Left has turned upside down on everything.
We're supposed to be against freedom of speech now (under the guise of "fighting fascism", failing to notice the irony in the fact that restricting speech is fascism).
A troll used to be someone who sabotages a conversation, while an admin was someone whose job was to keep it flowing. Now a troll is someone who tries to have a conversation, and the admin's job is to prevent it.
The Left used to fight for recognition of the rights of the vulnerable, but now it's furiously cranking out arguments to justify the outright denial of personhood to the most vulnerable people in the world.
The Left used to distrust those who claim to be "authorities". Now it's demanding absolute subordination to the whimsical dictates of un-elected nerds in lab-coats just because they have plaques on their walls and abbreviations after their names.
It used to be about natural health, and people making independent choices about our own bodies. Now Lefty discussion spaces are blasé about calls for vaccines to be imposed on whole populations by force.
It used to be about Loving And Accepting Yourself Exactly As You Are. Now, it insists that some people will never, can never, be happy until their genitals are cut off and folded inside-out, and their blood is pumped full of synthetic hormones made from the petrochemical industry's waste products.
It used to be all about Mother Nature. Now, we promise each other salvation at the prospect of implanting microchips in brains and linking every brain together via 5G microwaves into a second internet that overlaps the entire physical surface of the planet and then eventually becomes an omnipotent deity, which can then assimilate humanity, and all of biological life, into itself.
COINTELPRO stands for counter-intelligence program. It's a long-term joint project between the FBI and CIA (and corresponding agencies in other countries, such as MI6), to infiltrate left-wing groups, and conduct espionage on them. It started in the 1960's, during the counterculture movement. Among the first groups infiltrated were those opposing imperialism in Vietnam.
Entrenched powers naturally fear the Left, because the Left is the side of evolution, revolution, and making society better by upending entrenched power structures. This is inherently threatening... to entrenched power structures.
The Right is not threatening to such structures because it's the "let's keep things as they are" side.
Therefore, the entrenched powers channel an extra amount of corruption toward the Left, to warp it and make sure it becomes incapable of fulfilling its function.

Many people know about COINTELPRO, but most are making two erroneous assumptions:
A. They assume that it stopped at some point.
B. They assume that information was only traveling in one direction.
Most people think it was just for spying and surveying and collecting info on the groups... and fail to realize that COUNTER-intelligence is a different thing than just "intelligence."
"Intelligence" means gathering info on your enemy.
"COUNTER"-intelligence means feeding info to your enemy. Feeding false info, of course, to mess the enemy up, and lead him to do strategically ineffective and counterproductive things.
They infiltrated, corrupted, and led the Left down a false road - a road whose purpose was to:
1. Divide us by identity (setting color against color, sex against sex, etc, because divided = weaker).
2. Make us scary (by programming and organizing faux-marxist larpers known as the "black bloc" and "Antifa", who draw all their art in scary black and red colors with messed-up jagged font, and mask themselves, and burn/loot and throw bottles of urine at people... all to make the Left look crazy/scary to the middle).
"But we need to be scary, to make people uncomfortable!"
Oh plenty of people are plenty uncomfortable. But they're uncomfortable *with* the movement, not *on behalf* of it.
Why, especially on the left, people believe that making others uncomfortable is the same as winning hearts and minds.
It's like, if you dress in all-black, mask up, carry signs with Soviet-style propaganda artwork and ugly scary "jagged red letters on black-background" anarchist scrawl, and shout obscenities at people, and punch people, and throw bottles of piss at people, and scream and hiss at them, and rebuff all attempts at rational dialogue, and smash windows, and burn buildings down, and threaten to take people's right to vote away, and threaten to guillotine them, then you're winning society over to you cause! Cuz you made them *uncomfortable*! That's the same as persuasion!
Like, have you ever wondered how this line of thinking came to be accepted as self-evident on the left?
And who benefits from it?
3. Corrupt us morally (by making us embrace hookup culture and wanton abortion) so we'd lose stature and legitimacy to speak on other issues).
4. Funnel the environmental movement into a reductionist bottleneck of nothing but "carbon carbon carbon", to distract from the much bigger problem of ecocide in all its thousand forms, and to bog down the public conversation on ecology in a quagmire of arguments about unverifiable data points collected by nerds in strange white clothes working for institutions with names that are difficult to pronounce on distant icy landmasses that 99.9999% of people will never visit, so that the conversation remains an argument about WHO to put faith in, rather than simply looking out your window and noticing the obvious fact that our civilizational model is visibly eating the living planet.
Modern "leftism" is a deep-state psyop.
Identity politics, antifa, hookup culture, mass-abortion, reductionist carbon-fetishism, the medicalization and surgicalization of gender-nonconformity, TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome), and cancel-culture, are all the results of the deep-state infiltrating the Left for 50 years.
The virus is not the host. There is a real, actual Left Wing, obscured underneath all that.
There is a movement whose job is to evolve society, and to move forward, toward greater compassion, more respect for liberty, and for equality (under law), and sustainable civilization.
The Earth Party aims to bring that true Left back again.
How do we do that?
It's simpler than you think. There is already a group you can ask for help.
It's called the Right.
The Right has the answers.
This doesn't mean that the Right is "better", or that it has "all" the answers. It isn't, and it doesn't.
But it does have the specific missing pieces that the Left needs.
Just like the Left has the pieces the Right needs.
Each side is the "eye" in the other's yin-yang. The key to the other understanding itself.
The Right is the key to the Left, and the Left is the key to the Right.
If one side wants to correct its course, all it really has to do is start listening to the other side, and communicating again.
A side goes astray precisely because it fails (or refuses) to communicate with the other.
* * *
We do need a revolution. And the Left is the side that is supposed to lead one.
But any revolution led by the Left can only succeed, and SHOULD only succeed, if the Left shakes off its corruptions.
Begin by communicating with the Right.
