Lindsay Shephard: Goodbye to the Left

Lindsay Shephard was that Canadian university TA who was summoned before a Diversity Kangaroo Court to explain why, as part of an issues-in-media class, she had played a debate (which aired on a liberal Canadian tv station) about the use of made-up trans pronouns. The debate featured Jordan Peterson on the "against" side, and one or more students complained that being forced to listen to a debate (in which the other side was represented, too) about a contentious issue in the media was like Hitler invading the Issues in Media class.

She used to consider herself a leftist, but she says she now knows what leftism actually is, and she's not that, any longer.

Interestingly, she exposes, accidentally, the syndrome of Default Leftism. Leftists have struggled hard, and achieved great success, at making Leftism the default politics of anyone who actually doesn't think about politics. She thought she was a leftist, she says, because she cared about being nice to people and rode a bicycle instead of driving a car.

That, in her mind, was "leftist." And the leftists put a lot of effort into making people think they were leftists or aligned with the left if they merely thought you should be nice to people and also liked trees.

But now she knows what it really is -- a totalitarian misery cult.
