Sometimes people on the left wake up and realize that progressive ideology is flawed. This young woman not only came to her senses but now provides a window into the mind of the left by writing about it.

Former Radical Describes Leftist Activism as ‘Cult,’ Saw ‘Murderous Rage’
For many of us on the outside, it’s easy to make sweeping generalizations about social justice warriors and their world of radical Leftist activism. But when someone becomes disillusioned and leaves, their words can be especially valuable knowledge about this problem America is facing.
Here’s what one ex-radical has to say:
I see increasing numbers of so-called liberals cheering censorship and defending violence as a response to speech. I see seemingly reasonable people wishing death on others and laughing at escalating suicide and addiction rates of the white working class. I see liberal think pieces written in opposition to expressing empathy or civility in interactions with those with whom we disagree. I see 63 million Trump voters written off as “nazis” who are okay to target with physical violence. I see concepts like equality and justice being used as a mask for resentful, murderous rage.
I have been wondering why more people on the left are not speaking up against violence, in favor of free exchange of ideas and dialogue, in favor of compassion. But I know why. I was in the cult.
If more people like her wake up, there is hope for this country.
