It takes two to fight: Why the left needs to up its game.

Poster from the CAA/NRC Protests in Dec 2019

There are always two sides to an argument

  1. Right: Socially dominant groups: Males, dominant race / caste, asset owning, older adults, invested in religion and symbols of social status.
  2. Left: Socially marginalized groups: Marginalized race / caste, non-male, youth, seeking jobs, assets, power. Start at the bottom of the social pyramid.

The rise of welfare and big government

“It has taken us hundreds of years to create culture, don’t think we are going to give it up so easily”

Aggression, victory and power

“This is our dharma. If we don’t finish you, we will be finished”

A new aggressive left must rise

The youth is already on the streets and demanding their rights
  1. Have bleak career prospects due to rise of automation.
  2. Are locked out of home ownership.
  3. Are going to pay for climate change.
The youth has more moral fiber than they get credit for. Young kids at the CAA/NRC protest.
