Zombies from the extreme political left...

...inhabit a dead space in their own heads, occupied by self loathing, obsessed with a failed ideology and tormented by their own guilt...

"...The cognitive behavior of Western intellectuals faced with the accomplishments of their own society, on the one hand, and with the socialist ideal and then the socialist reality, on the other, takes one's breath away. In the midst of unparalleled social mobility in the West, they cry 'caste.' In a society of munificent goods and services, they cry either 'poverty' or 'consumerism.' In a society of ever richer, more varied, more productive, more self-defined, and more satisfying lives, they cry 'alienation.' In a society that has liberated women, racial minorities, religious minorities, and gays and lesbians to an extent that no one could have dreamed possible just fifty years ago, they cry 'oppression.' In a society of boundless private charity, they cry 'avarice.' In a society in which hundreds of millions have been free riders upon the risk, knowledge, and capital of others, they decry the 'exploitation' of the free riders. In a society that broke, on behalf of merit, the seemingly eternal chains of station by birth, they cry 'injustice.' In the names of fantasy worlds and mystical perfections, they have closed themselves to the Western, liberal miracle of individual rights, individual responsibility, merit, and human satisfaction. Like Marx, they put words like 'liberty' in quotation marks when these refer to the West…."

From Alan Charles Kors' essay Can There Be an "After Socialism" ...more about A.C.Kors here...with thanks to poster EBD at SmallDeadAnimals...

...and laughter and satire is the best antidote, see Iowahawk's response to PETA's lunacy above...
