Why This Radical Leftist is Disillusioned by Leftist Culture

Remember the days when social justice was about fairness and equality, and not about being offended by everything?

Colour me harsh, but I can’t help seeing these “SJWs” as being useful idiots to the corporate interests of Buzzfeed / Tumblr and the like. Oh, the ad revenue they must bring…

But yes, the left used to be a real thorn in the side of the right. It would allow free speech from its enemies, and then debunk their lies. It would accept injustice as a matter of today’s reality, yet it would work tirelessly toward a better society. It was about struggle in the face of great adversity, and it did -not- solve its problems by simply pointing out what might be offensive, and being picky about what words can and cannot be used for things. Such methods are reserved for what I call the ‘clickbait left’.

This article was a pleasure to read. Thank you.
