It’s hard to find a better description of one of the key characteristics of the Left –from mild progressive to hard-core communist– than this:
In other words, the Left believes it has figured out History, is certain that it flows in just one direction and where it ends, and that they themselves are the ones best able to facilitate this. Whether you want it or not.
Or, as I like to say, “God save me from those who want to save me.”
Via someone on Twitter, can’t recall who.
