Because most leftists want their theory neatly packaged into half-read memes to gain social captial. It's tragic really.

They thrive on the attention of being willfully ignorant. This way when they get even a slightly emotionally involved reply they fall back on their 'rationality' and become stagnant. They prey on the emotional investments of others because they think it's radicool.

You could make memes pointing out some of the real problems with primitivism like the obvious fact it's utopic af.

Instead they make polio memes/"they're just lazy and dumb," because they conflate a critique of our use of technology as a call for the abolition of it as well and this is a reactionary response geared towards the preservation of industrial society.
