It's very noticeable now how some 'influencers' who self-identify as 'Communists' & 'Marxists' (of the Middle Class variety, mainly academics + Media personalities) on 'The Left' are actively promoting draconian #Lockdown in West & see it as a political opportunity... (con't)

2) amid panic & insecurity, and seem to believe that all this economic/public suffering is 'necessary' as it will somehow hasten an 'end to Capitalism' bringing forth a new utopia where THEIR 'ideas' will be at the center of politics, these 'ideas' they hope to implement...

3) In my conversations w/some of these persons, they're not at all ashamed to openly eschew civil liberties in favor of some 'greater good' and want to see UBI + other 'socialist programs' like healthcare (which Europe already has anyway), 'climate change reforms' and so on...

4) Many of these middle class 'communists' are on one State payroll or another, or classed as 'Essential' - so #Lockdown hasn't affected their relatively comfortable incomes very much, hence they don't seem too bothered about skyrocketing unemployment & businesses destroyed...

5) They are attempting to steer certain sections of the public to unquestionally accept indefinite #lockdown, promulgating fear porn, at every opportunity hyping up the infection/death counts etc. They are pushing blatant State propaganda. But what's most disturbing is that...

6) they seem to believe that they'll somehow be able to Marshall the chaos of economic collapse in order to lead some nouveau Bolshevik revolt amid this artificially induced chaos we are now witnessing unfold. But perhaps the most unconscionable thing I've witnessed is that...

7) some of these same ideologues are also openly attacking any independent media who are doing the important work of exposing Gov-MSM lies and outright fraud strewn throughout this latest 'crisis'. They seem to be demanding the #Lockdown continue. History already warned us that..

8) when radical political ideologues place their 19th/20th century academic constructs ahead of real people, morals, rights & civil liberties, tyranny is end result. In the end, these Leftwing radicals are no different from Rightwing Fascist, or the Savage Capitalist, in that...

9) ... they really do not seem to care what it costs to realize their grand vision.

It's despotism by another name.
