The Left

Once upon a time, I saw the Left as a place for idealists who wanted a peaceful, tolerant world. I think that many of those people, and those who believed as I did, became more pragmatic with time. Some moved closer to the center, and others, to the right. Is much of the liberal left of yesterday the libertarian center-right of today? Many of the remnants of the far left are not for anything, they are anti-: anti-capitalist, anti-American, anti-Israel. Of course, this puts them in league with fascists, who would deny the freedom that the left should embrace.
