How much better off would Democrats specifically and civilization as a whole be if, for once, everyone focused on the massive societal gains and looked to the future with realistic optimism instead of misplaced and worsening pessimism?
Of the many axioms and truisms that offer sagacious observations in this lifetime, we could add one more to the list: The better life gets, the more miserable a leftist will become.
Why this happens is not hard to figure out. Leftism is predicated on the failed worldview of Marxism, which posits human beings must be broken down into a limited binary of oppressor/oppressed, victim/victimizer, white/BOPIC, have/have not, etc. By definition, a leftist puts themself in the former class of each diametric, therefore adopting a position of resentment, jealousy, hostility, and envy. Like a cornered feral animal, the only remaining option is to attack the supposed threat.
