I made the following comment in response to a post at Z's.
"As for me, Give me Liberty or give me death."
Patrick Henry, but you knew that.
The left live in a world unlike our own.
It exists in their head, and like some weird science fantasy horror movie, they want to project that world onto our world.
It won't fit reality, it will bring pain and slavery, but they think that it will all be worth it in the end.
It is a religion.
They are slaves to that religion.
They have an unrealistic faith in it's outcome even when the initial evidence is contrary, even to their own welfare.
They are willing to pay higher premiums and taxes as an offering to this god of theirs, and demand that you do the same.
If Christians were to insist on restraints in society for the common good, they would and have been mocked as zealots and self-righteous fascists.
But when liberals insist I accept and pay for their vision of the world, they are enlightened liberators.
In their own mind.
