The thing I don't understand is how the left can want the things Williams describes in his excellent piece when they've never work anytime or anywhere they've been tried before.

The purpose is to make the US as bad as any other country on earth. The meaning of lefty's life is to cause a great fall. So lefty can step into the "awful" situation and demonstrate his superior ability to run things.

Any time you are puzzled by lefty's motives, consider power over his fellow man, my friend. Think power; that's all the left really wants. Nothing else is acceptable; nothing less will be tolerated.

Anyone who reads my columns has heard me say before that what unites the Left is a vision of an ideal society, and what unites the Right is a vision of an ideal state. The Left will take or use any state necessary to get to that ideal society. At times they will argue for freedom in the language of the libertarian right; at others, they will defend Big Government outright. They think that this incoherence makes them centrists, pragmatists, reasonable, and they pat themselves on the back for it.

It is this ideology, this willingness to do absolutely anything...
