I've told students before that the huge, massive, colossal flaw in the right's claim that there's a left-wing conspiracy, like, everywhere is that actual left-wingers couldn't organize a bar trivia night without falling into pointless factionalism. It'd be kind of neat if the left were as united and purposeful as they exist in the paranoid imagination of the right.

A pacifist vegan such as yourself would say something like that.

I’m not a vegan, I’m a vegetarian! That’s the problem with you carnivores, ready to lump us all in together, ignoring how some of us really like cheese. C’mon, people, we’re boycotting this meeting. :angry:

Leftists are like Linux distros. There's so fucking many varieties and a lot of them have the same purpose. They're also all mostly completely inaccessible to a 'normal' person, because the person that invented them was more or less designing their own utopia anyway haha.
