‘Rejection due to imperfection!’ versus ‘If not – then what?’

We need to evaluate in terms of comparisons with the actual – including actual historical and actual elsewhere (but overall, as a package; not by cherry-picking one aspect from an integrated whole) – and even comparison with the actual possible, when that is done with honesty and care.

Modern Leftism is essentially negative – lacking even the utopia of Marxism; it is based on generating outrage about decontextualised imperfections (because decontextualised, the outrage is unbounded… ‘Death to micro-aggressors!’).

Never: ‘Rejection due to imperfection!’ – and always: ‘If not – then what?’
