This is a story that keeps repeating itself in different eras and different places. Capital has learned how to make itself look very seductive to the Leftists. It says all the right things, it doesn’t permit itself to give off even a whiff of un-PC ideas. Capital just smells nice. And those unhappy, angry workers can never win that competition. They can never manage to use the correct slogans or show up at a convenient time.
This is also how #metoo became more about policing assortative mating and class than harassment and assault prevention.
Turns out real life is complicated and actual people are messy, uncouth, and have their own desires. It’s hard for “educated” leftists to handle that.
