Which Philosopher Are You? | Clarissa’s Blog

It’s interesting how even the extreme right are somehow pyschologically purer, more consistent, above all drier and more tolerable than this mushy mess of the contemporary left. You just don’t end up in good places when people act “according to their natures”.
And it is true that they are against respresentative democracy. You only have to get a relatively more leftwing government in power, or a woman, and these “radical leftist” will start whining about “ego” and the impurity of action, and so on. It seems what they really want is a hardline rightwing government to keep them in place “according to nature” and to give them the sensation of being romantic martyrs.
