What's Wrong with the Left

To give you some idea of the size of the Statue of Liberty’s torch, here’s a picture of its replacement during the 1984 renovation. It can only be accessed via a very narrow stairway.
One of my main gripes about political writers is the way they blame the Left (or the Right) for our current eff-ed up mess, but they never specify exactly what is wrong with 'those people'.  Col. B. Bunny spells it out for me:
Having been as slow on the uptake as anyone, I can't claim too many independent penetrating insights early on. The Cold War years seemed straightforward enough with the main irritant being the left's
  1. failure to recognize the hideous nature of communist regimes,
  2. failure to recognize the superiority of economic freedom,
  3. failure to recognize the innate decency of American law and traditional society,
  4. pathetic belief in their ability to craft solutions to life's problems superior to those developed over the centuries, and 
  5. their dishonesty about their revolutionary objective.

You can argue over the validity of these points, but at least we have a list to work from. From Liberty's Torch via Dustbury
