Why the Left always beats the secular Right in democracy

*

Both the Left and the secular Right derive from the same deep root – utilitarianism. The only difference is one of emphasis.

*


The Left emphasizes transcendental morality/ virtue, the secular Right emphasizes transcendental truth/ honesty.

*


Because feeling oneself to be virtuous is much more popular than feeling honest, and because people hate wickedness much more than they hate lies, the Left will always beat the secular Right.
