The naive reality of leftist political solutions

And the basically good people who are the Leftist voters are angry too, for different reasons, so they don’t think things through or pay much attention to detail either, and as a result, they will often be lured into voting for some unscrupulous Leftist politician who promises to fix everything—but who is sufficiently involved in politics to know deep down that the cure will be worse than the disease.

But if offering false hope gets the leader/activist into a position of power and glory, too bad! And the poor old conservative who knows how things work and says that there is no easy fix will be ignored—and called “heartless”.
