It could be that, and to a certain degree it probably is, but I was actually thinking of something other than that. I'll explain it briefly here, although a brief summary won't really do it justice. As it's a big topic, subsequent discussion may be required....SDC wrote:I know there has been staunch opposition to the idea that these opposing positions have, in a sense, created each other....
In short, I think that instead of directly fighting the narrative of the traditional left, the global capital class have learned how to co-opt the ideology and language of the left, such that they have now re-framed the mainstream left's position in a way that serves their own economic and political agendas, whilst simultaneously placating people's emotional needs through the redefinition of what constitutes 'justice'.
In essence, they have attempted to subsume the left through social engineering and the false song of globalism - some have noticed the impact of this infiltration, others not yet. Therein lies the divide, but once it has been seen, it cannot be unseen.
(I'll leave you with that theory for a while, because it plays out in all manner of ways, and can be used as a model to shed light on all manner of domestic and global issues. I'd rather you "connect the dots" yourself and see if it makes sense to you, than to take it or reject it upon my say so.
Maybe you can apply it to work out who sabotaged Bernie Sanders and why? Maybe you can work out why Super PACs yield so much comparative influence in the DNC nomination process? Maybe you can work out why Clinton had so much money behind her, when supposedly the Republicans are the rich man's party? Maybe you can work out why the mainstream media have acted as they have both before and after Trump's election? They're interesting questions, because they're unanswerable by the traditional left vs right analysis)
