For an excellent analysis of the totalitarian routes of Corbynism, read this article.
Source: Fathom – The Corbyn left: the politics of position and the politics of reason
It saddens me that left-wing politics has been corrupted by the hard-left. The rhetoric of the hard-left is based on dogma rather than evidence.
In my own mind, I am also reflecting on the Telegraph’s lead story of masked anarchists taking to the streets of London. For me, the article was too light on the masked anarchists who injured both police and horses.
Without a traditional middle ground Labour leadership, the UK will increasing lurch towards confrontation between the establishment and the rising swell of anarchists.
It’s time for tradition Labour Party supporters and politicians to act, before it’s too late.
Corbyn has been put there as a lightning rod for the disaffected, the disenfranchised and the under-achievers, while the real business of reforming the bloated public sector can eventually start unimpeded.
Corbyn cannot assume power unless he becomes a Privy Councillor in every sense, something he refuses point blank to do. He is in Stalin’s terminology, a “Useful idiot”.
The “hard left” will through “direct action ” and rabble-rousing cause trouble. The UK Government and the authorities will use this as a pretext for more draconian security measures and intrusive surveillance which perhaps is as much about controlling the “great unwashed masses” as it ever was about dealing with terrorists.
It might be timely to reread George Orwell’s classic, ‘1984.
