If you don't havea vision of a so called perfect society that you strive for, what's the point? How can you elect officials or support policies if you don't even have a bigger picture to relate them to?
Like liberals and conservatives alike decry leftists as not being practical. Why the fuck should we be practical? Practicality has led the world to colonization and wars and slavery, lack of progress in every social sphere, and destroying the world.
For example, let's take the conservative stance on climate change in the US. They believe that, at it's most liberal interpretation, protecting the Earth shouldn't interfere with business. Ok, so your vision of a perfect society is one in which corporations control a planet hot as hell and unlivable? Where's your god damn imagination?
IDK if that made sense to anyone
