I heard Alex Epstein, apologist for fossil fuels and author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, mention this quote from a book review by David M.

JP’s Dystopic Journal: Radical Intolerance

This goes a long way towards explaining the kind of vitriol and condescension so prevalent on the left nowadays towards anybody who refuses to go along with them. This explains the steep rise of authoritarianism, especially in the West around COVID and climate-change.

LR Podcast, S3E27: Election Special 2022

Things like ESG already control the behavior of individuals indirectly. The aim of the Utopian Left is to extend this sort of control to the individual level. Examples of this can already be seen in such things like vaccine passports and mask mandates.  The reliance on technology will be used as a point of control.  Access to things like education, online commerce, and entertainment will be subject to an ever-increasing array of rules and regulations.  In order to partake in the modern lifestyle, people will be made to trade their freedom and privacy for goods and services.

JP’s Dystopic Journal: Halloween Special

Independent thinkers question the intentions of others and have a stubborn reliance on facts when it comes to making important decisions for themselves and their loved ones.  The leftist elite cannot have anyone questioning their decisions, much less refusing to go along with them.  To paraphrase the fascists-- Nothing outside the collective, everything inside the collective, and nothing against the collective. All wants and needs must align with those of the collective. We see this taken to its logical extreme in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, when society completely collapses without the services of those who refuse to sacrifice their own self-interest to an ungrateful society that takes them for granted.

LR Podcast, S3E25: They want our pets now

For people who love their pets, even liberals who don't own a gun, don't have kids, don't own a car, or don't understand money, their pets might be where they finally draw the line.  The love of pets is one of the last commonalities between the Left and the Right in this world.  You can mess with someone's gun, their car or their money, but don't mess with their pets.  CNN may be barking up the wrong tree when it comes to downsizing Fido or Kitty.

LR Podcast, S3E22: The Left desperately want you to believe Meloni is a fascist.

You're meant to fear black shirts kicking down doors and beating people who go against the regime, but what the Left really seems to fear is that she'll be successful in delaying or halting their Great Reset plans.  More than jackbooted thugs, the Left fears Meloni's ability to stifle their agenda to establish a global, collectivist oligarchy.
