For liberals to think about
Make note that I am not a conservative; I am a leftist. This is not meant as an attack but as a criticism—and a call to leftism because I feel liberalism just isn’t good enough to meaningfully help people during this stressful time.
- Liberalism does little to fight growing fascism and in fact tends to sanction it under the guise of freedom of expression.
- Liberals focus on helping people through minimum alteration to the status quo—they like capitalism and the class system and the law. They are reluctant to change these structures themselves and opt to edit things within these structures.
- Liberalism focuses heavily on ideas and not material realities. For instance: protests and voting do little but demonstrate ideas, instead of helping marginalized people in a quicker and more impactful manner (i.e. volunteering, local organizing to help the community, etc).
