They assume that the modern world will continue to exist.

But this modern world, modern civilization, does exist only where men have been, for a short two centuries, free from these ancient state tyrannies, called controls.
Free thought, free speech, free action, and freehold property are the source of the modern world. It cannot exist without them. Its existence depends upon abolishing these reactionary state controls and destroying the socialist State. The task before Americans is to end these police-controls of peaceful, productive American citizens, to repeal all the reactionary legislation and rescind the Executive orders that established the national socialist regime, to abolish the Federal corporations, departments, bureaus and agencies that dictate and enforce these State controls....

Your Say

I submit that The Left doesn't underestimate the consequences of their actions upon the civilization. They simply don't consider civilization valuable enough to consider what happens after their latest idea is implemented.

Leftists view civilization like an angry ex-wife views her family. It's more important to harm the ex-husband than what happens to the children, her self, the family's former home, etc. The Left wants what they want and if it hare-lips everyone, then so be it.

Civilization can be wiped out almost overnight by a single surge in solar activity. It would hit us like a planet-wide EMP and leave the world ruined.
