No matter how well they try to conceal their true identity behind a facade of “objectivity”, no matter how well they rationalize their arguments, no matter how hard they try to hide their contempt for the “unenlightened,” leftist ideologues have one characteristic in common that always gives them away: They believe in the perfectibility of human beings. Based on this belief, they are constantly driven to seek change through political action to solve people’s social problems. This characteristic of leftists identifies them as “progressives” and originates from a specific feature in their socio-political character structure: They all function from their superficial layer or facade and their destructive middle layer. From the superficial layer comes their idealism and their unshakable view that people are perfectible through political intervention. From their destructive middle layer comes their “case” for political action. From these preconceptions the ideologues believe that they are the chosen ones most qualified to improve people’s lives through their socialistic programs. All others who are opposed to their belief system become collectively associated with the Right. Thus, the ideological battle that takes place between the Left and the Right comes down to those who want to “fix” people and those who are able to see that the methods of the left simply do not work.
Now, it is true that especially as a result of the breakdown of the authoritarian social order society is in trouble and in dire need of help. However, these leftist ideologues are not the ones who are capable of improving social conditions because they have little or no understanding of the biologically rooted emotional forces that play the decisive role in determining human social behavior, healthy as well as pathological. In fact, the Leftists are more likely than not to make matters worse with their ” solutions.” These solutions are always basically the same: Change the surface manifestation of social problems and ignore their underlying biological basis. The result of this symptomatic approach is that social conditions continue to worsen as they spread to and become embedded in deeper layers of social armor.
