Reader’s comment: I too left the Left behind


In response to Ollie Wright: I was a hate-filled Class Warrior – then I came to my senses, HerewardtheWoke wrote:

Fascinating article, thank you. I was a small peripheral part of Left-wing politics back in the heady days of the 70s and 80s and can see how it seemed that ‘anarchism was romantic and different, however plain stupid a reasonable adult could see it to be. The particular strain that Class War represented was the crack cocaine of adolescent politics.’ All that talk late into the night about the evils of Thatcherism, the miners, privatisation, feminism (back when that meant being strong and independent, not a weeping victim), nationalising the multinationals, blah blah, it took me a long time to leave (although Tony Blair helped) and even longer to overcome my sense that Left = Good, Tory = Evil. But like you, I got there in the end.
