Depends on where you live. I meet more leftists than right-ists.

However, right wing ideology has a way of drawing people in to a feeling of community as they get more extreme, whereas leftists become isolated. I think it has to do with the fact that right wing ideologies tend to circle around an established authority, even if that’s just a vision of an ideal society, whereas leftists seem to always be dragged from one cause to the next being “the most important thing ever.”

You also just never know when talking to a leftists that they’ll decide you’re the oppressor/opposition. The cynical lens, for good or bad, doesn’t exclude potential allies who are learning/processing.
