The problem with idealism is it causes people to be cunts to some degree – many to an extreme degree. Therefore, it’s not surprising the cultural left instigates such a backlash from normal people – and also it’s not surprising the racist right – and even traditional Republicans do the same.
Anyway, idealism isn’t always bad. I mean, we want to raise our kids right. However, the problem is when they abuse kids and they also abuse adults – by assuming they’re kids. Anyway, the problem is indeed politics too – because being involved in social issues leads to frustration. For instance, should people be annoyed that liberal welfare policies – without regard to integration – as me and @Robert Lindsay suggested, lead to a massive waste?
