Does the left intentionally lie, fully aware of what they are doing, or are they really unknowing useful idiots and they honestly believe what they are writing?
This is a question that I have been raising about fringy libs for the last several years, and since I don’t know any of the ones who are actively engaged either in politics or in the media sphere, I have yet to try to drill down on one of them to find out.
I would posit the hypothesis that there is a mix of active liars and useful idiots. The main difference is that the former are the active indoctrinates, and the latter are among the more active members of the indoctrinated class. In many ways, this is a cult. They just don’t have a compound and take each other’s money (shhh... they take yours). Either way, whether conscious liar or willing idiot, they all believe the ends justify any means. There is no fair play. No good faith. There is only relativistic ‘truths’.
Very true. This approach goes back at least as far as the French Revolution -- "You have to break some eggs to make an omelette."
They keep their eye on the "truth" that they want an omelette -- they don't care about the damage they do, as long as they get a nice breakfast at the end.
