"that was the real purpose of Leftism from the beginning."

You're saying, David, that Leftism is a big con game. I agree.

The reality of Leftism, is blaming one's own shortcomings on others, then seizing power and taking away wealth from the well-off. The Bible calls that "covetousness", followed by "theft". It's been repackaged as some great new idea.
