There is an excellent book by Paul Gottfried called "The Strange Death of Marxism" which goes into how after the fall of the Soviet Union most of the Left in Western Europe gave up on historic working class/Trade Union issues and instead started to focus on trannies, one armed black lesbians, etc, etc. The thing is that none of this eejits have noticed that the types of things that the Ultra-Left was pushing back in the 1960s and 70s and was considered radical doing so are now being pushed hard by Capitalism. On Politics.ie on so many issues it is impossible to tell apart a Shinner and a FG voter.The minute the left bought so much into third-worldism that they'd turn a blind eye and be puppets of International Finance to fight "the far-right", who are in reality just ordinary salt of the earth nationalists, that was the minute they lost all semblance of reason.
Something else that I have noticed that countries with the sanest Lefts in Europe all tend to be Orthodox Christian countries.
