Plenty of leftists understand that without liberalism, modern democratic societies tend to degenerate into civil conflict rather quickly

The destruction of liberal political norms does cause some consternation on both the left and the right.
Plenty of leftists understand that without liberalism, modern democratic societies tend to degenerate into civil conflict rather quickly, as the leading party faction proceeds to liquidate all of its rivals. So, they feel uneasy, and tend to complain about violations of liberal norms in areas like privacy and restrictions of speech. These complaints have no force (they’re backed by feelings rather than weapons most of the time), so amplifying those complaints is mostly useless. Complaints about the NSA’s mass spying, for example, are the whimpers of a dying animal — not an expression of authentically vigorous resistance. Leftists Work For the Total State - Henry Dampier

Sounds what we have now. It's taking too long.
