  Left-wing politics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some critics of the left claim that leftist movements lost their moorings, or their rationale, after the collapse of the European communist states (beginning in 1989 and ending with the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991).
While many leftists have happily worked with Arab or Muslim groups in opposition to U.S. imperialism or the Israeli occupation of Palestine, alliances between leftists and Islamists are relatively unusual and recent, since leftist politics of civil libertarianism and secularism jar with hard-line Islamism.
More typical examples of leftists working in anti-war coalitions with Muslims would be the membership of American Muslims for Jerusalem in UFPJ or of the Muslim Student Association, American Muslims for Global Peace, and Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam in ANSWER.

 NON-LEFTIST ETHICAL NATURALISM
Leftists normally seem to ignore totally what I have called above meaning 2 for "ought" statements: that some ways of living lead to generally desired outcomes and some do not.
Amusingly, however, Leftists are very prone to using the language of right and wrong (which they claim not to believe in) when it suits them.
And when Leftists do use moralistic language, it is rather fun to use the arguments of moral relativism to show how shallow their arguments are -- as here.

 LEFTIST MOTIVATIONS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Leftists who think that all untoward adult behaviour is malleable and just the result of an unfortunate upbringing and not the result of heredity should read this article.
Leftists do of course on occasions attempt to give their ideas about equality some substance and the work of philosopher John Rawls is best know in that connection.
Leftists sometimes argue, with their usual illogic, that it is OK for them to do harm with their addled programmes of action because conservatives ALLOW great harm to go on in the world -- such as the starving children in Africa.

 FrontPage magazine.com :: Leftist Racism by John J. Ray
Leftists of course constantly condemn the slightest suspicion of racism in others in an apparent claim that they are holier than others in that respect.
A good reply to the Leftist arguments for "affirmative action" might be some very famous words: "I have a dream that my children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
And Western countries are often criticized by Leftists for their "harsh" treatment of illegal immigrants (treatment which rarely leads to any deaths) but we hear hardly a word about the mini-holocausts that are occurring all the time in Africa.

 PSYCHOLOGY OF LEFTISM   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
For instance, Leftists in most of the developed world constantly agonize about the "harsh" treatment that their governments mete out to illegal immigrants, no matter how lenient such treatment actually is. One gets the impression that only complete abandonment of border controls would satisfy Leftists.
So Australian Leftists mount huge demonstrations against this policy even though the policy has huge support in the Australian community generally, even though the illegals concerned are treated humanely and even though the illegals are probably better housed and fed in their special prisons than they ever were in their homelands.
So Leftists in power are once again seen to be very jealous of their power, intolerant of diversity, opposed to free speech and oppressive and discriminatory in their employment practices: All things that they would normally try to deny but which in fact simply make them typical Leftists.

 Leftist Political Psychology
Leftists may no longer have Communism to point to as a possible alternative system but they remain Leftists all the same.
Whatever else the Leftist may be, the bedrock of Leftism is a strong dislike or even a hatred of the way the world is. They have a strong desire or even a need for political change, often extreme change.
Whether Leftist and Rightist objectives are opposite or just simply different, how Leftists and Rightists go about achieving their different basic objectives certainly generates plenty of conflict and opposition between the two sides.

 Leftist Racism
This continuing Leftist obsession with Nazism might make some sense if Nazism were uniquely evil but, horrible and massive though the Nazi crimes were, they were anything but unique.
A great Leftist cause for the last 30 or more years has been "affirmative action" — which normally translates into deliberate discrimination against whites both in hiring practices and in admissions to universities and colleges — a policy which is as blatantly racist as any policy could be.
But few Leftists are interested in such findings and therefore often carry their condemnation of people's thinking about groups to a ridiculous and unfair degree.
