group culture, formed by historical coincidence.
i'd be 100% down with having some cohesion, loyalty and discipline, fuck, if only! i would not care one bit if it wasn't my favoured tendency that dominated and had the most say in forming our strategy. the worst thing about the left is it's pathetic weakness and impotence and overcoming that is worth almost anything at this point. we're running out of time.
rightwingers are used to sweeping shit under the rug, their families and churches are completely dependent on their deep commitment to that principle. plus they don't believe the world can get better (because we think that), and they are primarily motivated by spite, toward us. they are easy to direct.
we on the other hand are still trying to recover from the traumatic collective loss of sanity after we were crushed starting in the 70s. since then we've resigned to having no power to change anything and increasinly freaking out about rearranging deck chairs and retreating further and further into the world of ideology entirely separated from reality. this is as much a problem for academic sjw types, tankies and anarchists, as is the constant cancellation of other tendencies, but no one seems to notice when they themselves do it. they just criticise others for it.
