The Left & a Reality to Terrible to Think About

What else could those 20-30 anti-harper activists chanting in the freezing cold outside the Toronto Convention Centre a few weeks ago, have been thinking? "Our power is in the streets!" they shouted out as they agreed to reject working with the slimy politicians and vowed to defeat harper on their own. I might have thought that the three cops standing nearby were amused by this except that I'm pretty sure they weren't even listening.

It must be the case that such activist types are aware of their own lack of consequence and the inevitability of the horrible policies coming their way. They must see their own faces when they think of Orwell/O'Brien's vision of the future in "1984" of "a boot stomping on a human face forever."

It's too terrible to contemplate. So they push it out of their minds and instead say completely deluded things like "Our power is in the streets!"
