I am not optimistic about the future of Left. In the past, late 90s to early 2000s I took glee in pointing out that intellectual conservatism fell off couple exits prior. When TP rose, I could genuinely point to demagogy and outright ignorance on the right and say that at least we are better than that. This is no longer the case. Left's ideology has been hijacked by censorious, divisive attention seekers that care not for any of the core values. They would rather tear down random statues than tackle the problem of run-away wealth inequality.
