The Left and Me
I first became interested in politics when I was around 12. Before that I had been interested in birds. I remember being really inspired by what I saw happening in Libya. All those people rising up against their dictator was one of the noblest things I had ever seen. I still have the newspaper of when Gaddafi died. If I remember correctly the headline reads; "The Death of a Pariah".

What really got me into politics was wikileaks. At the time I was still too immature to accept the reality of world and I believed, as all leftists do, that the Iraq War was some sort of anti-Arab holocaust. I read Noam Chomsky and after a while I began calling myself an anarcho-syndicalist. I got a copy of the The Conquest of Bread. I read it cover to cover. Later I began to see myself more as a Marxist. I read the Communist Manifesto at least ten times. These books still influence a lot of my thinking and ideology, although I now realize the flaws of economic planning compared to the benefits of market socialism.

I got involved in online left-wing communities, where I parroted the thought of the leftist opinion-makers. I hated Israel, "Islamophobia", neoconservatism, Ayn Rand and just about everything else I was told to. I even bought into feminist lies and I started to dislike white people. But my young mind began to mature, and I started thinking for myself. I started to question feminism and "Islamophobia". I Watched youtube videos on these subjects from all angles and at first I would just sit in rage when ever someone said something un-leftist, but after a while what was said started to sink in. For the first time I saw that there were more sides to an argument than leftist and nazi. Then I saw a blog post where Marx was quoted about Islam. The quote ran; "The Koran and the Mussulman legislation emanating from it reduce the geography and ethnography of the various people to the simple and convenient distinction of two nations and of two countries; those of the Faithful and of the Infidels. The Infidel is “harby,” i.e. the enemy. Islamism proscribes the nation of the Infidels, constituting a state of permanent hostility between the Mussulman and the unbeliever." I realized that the left had been lying about Marx. He was not a champion of Moslems as the left would have you believe. He agreed with the view I had started to take.

At about the same time I began my confrontations with SJWs. I remember getting called a rape apologist and misogynist for merely questioning rape culture. I began to argue with the SJWs and I dared to say that yes means yes. I said that agreeing to something implies consent, and that to claim something you agreed to to be rape is a false accusation. I was accused of being every horrible thing you could think of and was rejected by the rest of the leftist community I was part of.

I started considering myself a independent leftist. I still supported the leftist parties and continued to believe that there were good feminists. Over the next few months I failed to see any sign of these good feminists. I look for them in feminist publications and such, but all I could find was SJWs. I still believed that the leftist parties over in Europe were good, but as I started reading about them I realized they too supported Islamization. I didn't know where to politically place myself.

For a while I returned to anarchism. I adopted a radical anti-nationalist stance and read all I could about a certain German political current going by the name anti-Germans. I began to adopt their views, seeing them as the closest to my own. I had previously come across one of Sartre's writing where he praised Israel. This inspired me to start looking more closely at the situation. I started to see Israel not as the new Nazi Germany, but as the new Poland. I realized that Jews were people too, and that they were not evil capitalists as the left had taught me. I really began formulating my own thoughts and began reading Nietzsche. I began valuing the individual. Not long after I came across Satanism. I read all of LaVey's books other than the Satanic Witch. Freedom began to be more than a buzzword to me. I read Anthem and realized that (despite her wonky economic views) Ayn Rand wasn't so bad. I started to question the leftist view on climate change and realized that it is merely the atheist equivalent of the rapture.

As I continued to follow European politics I saw that the people closest to me were those on what leftists condemn as "the far-right". By the time the 2014 EU election rolled around I had begun cheering for Le Pen and Wilders. I didn't agree with a lot of what these people said, but I now know that they are the best hope for their countries. I'm still against capitalism, but my social views have changed as I have matured.

I know a lot of you don't like me, and I just wanted to help you understand where I am coming from. I know somethings I say can seem ridiculous, but I like to think aloud and play devil's advocate. So that is my ideological story.

Maybe you should have stuck with birds...

It's never too late.

Birds are awesome.

And...

You kinda suck at politics.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

The "far-right" carried the European elections in May, so I wouldn't be so sure.

RE: The Left and Me
So you started off as an extreme leftist ideologue and now you are an extreme rightist ideologue.

Sounds like you still have a lot of maturation to go through.

Re: The Left and Me
So your issues of viewing distinctions in extreme positions and thinking you're onto the right path isn't new.

Well keep working on understanding why and how you think something.

I love birds. I mean they are the strongest dinosaurs after all.
