A former anarchist appeared on the Tucker Carlson show Friday night and described life on the far left as a sad existence. He said everyone on the left thinks they have the answer to everything and that this creates an almost religious atmosphere.

FORMER ANARCHIST REVEALS WHY HE JOINED AND WHAT IT DID TO HIM
“There’s a really strong faith-based component. You become absolutely sure that you are right. And nothing is going to sway you from it. You’ve set your course and you figured it out,” Barnes began.
Carlson responded, “So it didn’t seem from your description like there were a lot of other inputs coming into the cell. It seemed almost totally self-referential. You talk only to people you are in it with. What are the things that you convinced yourself of or were convinced of in the cell?”
“Hmm-mm. Oh, gosh. Everything. You were able to find what was wrong with everything, from school to government, to police, to any interaction people had. You can find what is wrong with it. It’s not a very happy way to live,” Barnes added. “Violence, there is shifty way people talk about it. Direct action and diversity of tactics, which is a subtle way of saying if somebody wants to be violent we’re going to turn our head and be okay with it.”

Good for him that he left that life behind.
