I have long suspected that “left-wing” totalitarian humanism would eventually bend into “right-wing” neoconservatism.
After all, the neoconservatives were originally liberals or leftists (often very far leftists) who moved rightward and became “pro-American.” They did so on, first, social democratic and Trotskyist anti-Soviet grounds, and then, after the Six Day and Yom Kippur Wars, on “pro-Israel” grounds.
The two primary figures associated with the formation of neoconservatism were Irving Kristol, a former Trotskyist, and Norman Podhoretz, an early New Leftist in the 1950s and early 1960s. Then there’s the odyssey of Christopher Hitchens, a former Trotskyist turned neocon who called for bombing Afghanistan “out of the stone age.”
Also, notice the favorable views that leading neocons have expressed concerning Madame Hillary.
The more powerful the cultural Left becomes in the U.S. the more we will see the hard left calling for the use of U.S. military power to wipe out allegedly “reactionary” states and cultures around the world.
