The left doesn't acknowledge a natural order of being based on an archetypal reality. For them everything is a cultural or so called social construct. But the spiritually aware know that there is an objective reality to which we, both individually and collectively, should conform if we are to be what we should.
The left doesn't understand intuition or even, it seems, common sense. It goes by ideology which simply means a theory of how it thinks things ought to be. Reality must be cut down to fit in its ideological box. Bits that don't or won't fit in must be discarded or dismissed as lies and prejudices.
What is at the root of this? I have watched in amazement as humanity has rejected so much truth in my lifetime, and that was starting off from a fairly low base! From studying people on the left the conclusion I have come to is that they are often motivated, whether they know it or not, by a hatred of God.
This will seem absurd to many of them. God doesn't even enter the picture, they would say. But he doesn't because they have rejected him and that is because the idea of God interferes with their desires and prejudices, with their selves. So they are forced to make something up (for that's what this all amounts to) to replace him.
Some on the left might accept God but only in terms of their leftism which is paramount and to which his reality must be adjusted; the spiritual inclining to the political which is a complete hierarchical reversal. It does seem to be axiomatic that any small amount of leftism in an individual will infect everything else. That is why it must all be rejected, though not, of course, the humanitarianism that is held to be its root and raison d'etre. But this humanitarianism has to be seen in the context of the primacy of God, and the fact that we are spiritual beings in material form not solely, or even principally, material beings.
The solution to our current impasse (and anyone who doesn't recognise that we have struck a wall in terms of direction has their eyes and mind both shut) is very simple. We have to abandon ideology. We have to return to a religious attitude to life which sees its essence as not in itself, as defined in physical terms, but in something greater than itself. Something beyond itself. You might say this too is ideology, just a religious one, but that is not so. It is an acknowledgement of what we all know in our hearts. It is not an intellectual thing, although it can become that. But really it is not a thought about life, and therefore something that is split off from what we actually are, but a deep feeling about it and so it is totally in tune with the essence of our being.
That is the difference between ideology and truth. Truth encompasses one's whole being. Ideology only relates to the head.
By the way, the modern code of right behaviour or political correctness, sometimes justified as simple politeness, is actually the enforcement of ideological theory and thus fundamentally anti-truth. It must be rejected if one wants to escape the strait jacket of ideology and return to truth. Not that I am advocating either a return to the past as it was or a political lurch to the right as seems to be beginning in reaction to leftist ideology in several countries now. We need to go beyond and above both left and right to find truth which is not in politics. The fact is, though, that current ideological possession in the West is almost exclusively through the left.
