Klavan points out the essence of collectivism -- violence.

The Truth About Dorner: Leftism Is Violence

I left this comment:
A ridiculous article, definitely in the “pot calling the kettle black” category.

Here’s reality, folks. Leftists are every bit as violent as rightists, and vice versa. “Leftists” are every bit as fascist as “rightists”. “Rightists” are every bit as socialist as “leftists”. These are just labels, just as meaningless as the names of the football teams you support.

A few days ago I was arguing on a gun forum against the socialism of government schooling, and having a hard time with it. So much for the supposed “conservatives”…

There are two kinds of people: those who believe the government religion, and those who don’t. The former (including both “liberals” and “conservatives”) are all by definition violent, because that is what government is, institutionalized violence. The latter are generally not violent. That is how society splits, on the question of violence. Not left vs. right.

"That is how society splits, on the question of violence. Not left vs. right."

That is utter bullshit.

The left has a defined code of conduct and their play book is on display for all to see. The fact that they are winning nearly every battle with it is also a fact of some note to those with anything other than shit for brains, marbles for eyes and cow pies for ears.

They are going to break the country in order to"fix" it, the way they want it and they are going to jail and/or kill anyone who gets in their way and their friends in the news and entertainment industry will never tell you that it's happening. You will however be told all manner of lies because that is what Marxists (broad term) do. It's their path to power and control, not to mention wealth and privilege.

Not all Marxists are poor nor do most of them wish to be. They want you and your children poor and the power of the state (them) to reign over all.

Conservatives OK with torture and rendition? Conservatives OK with the War on Drugs? Conservatives OK with endless aggressive wars? Conservatives even OK with wage and price controls (Richard Nixon)? Conservatives OK with endless business regulation? Conservatives just fine with crony capitalism?

You don't see any violence here?

Pot calling the kettle black. The common theme between "left" and "right": belief in the government religion. As Bastiat said, "The state is that great fiction by which everyone tries to live at the expense of everyone else." The right does it just as much as the left.
