Learn from history. Liberal democracy was a Leftist movement. The Rightist supporters of monarchy had the same attitude as is portrayed in this article.
Having won their way the Leftist were aghast at the Robber Barons that the new enlightened freedom for the individual first produced. The Leftist then ran to Communism. Aghast at the abuses of that particular path to utopia they are now compromising with a strange mix of socialism and free-market capitalist ... which, BTW, is embraced by both D's and R's.
