Generally speaking, the goals of today’s leftists are NOT in conflict with the accepted morality. On the contrary, the left takes an accepted moral principle, adopts it as its own, and then accuses mainstream society of violating that principle. Examples: racial equality, equality of the sexes, helping poor people, peace as opposed to war, nonviolence generally, freedom of expression, kindness to animals. Leftists, especially those of the oversocialized type, usually do not rebel against these principles but justify their hostility to society by claiming (with some degree of truth) that society is not living up to these principles.

(We do not mean to suggest that women, Indians, homosexuals ARE inferior; we are only making a point about leftist psychology.)
Have you ever asked yourself why it is that, when a restaurant becomes popular and serves twice as many customers as they did the month before, only the owner receives any of that dramatic influx of wealth, when they themselves have done the very least to serve and service those new customers? Is this not the manner and mode of labor compensation which was utterly despised when alleged of Communism? That workers being paid a set wage regardless of output, attitude, aptitude or ability would result in a feckless, substandard society where no one is happy to work and all service is terrible?
