Excellent exposition. I am not sure what, if anything, I have seen before on this subject. My internet ramblings must stay around more conservative topics. I think that I try to be reasoned and fair with new ideas and opinions, so this Kafkaesque system that is described in this article strikes me as both ridiculous and horrific.
As you point out, if anything, New Leftists are silly in their narcissistic focus and wasting the resources available to them as part of the One Percent. Since much of our leadership has historically been drawn from their ranks, such a world-view, or derisible lack of one, could really turn out to be corrosive to our society.
