Short answer: Because leftists are the only ones that have actual solutions to the problems that plague our world.

Long Answer:

When I say "leftist" I mean it in the traditional way. Not in the way that conservatives define "leftist" these days, with their singular obsession with culture wars at the expense of any positive agenda.

Nor do I mean "liberal", and all the phony Identity Politics baggage that comes with it that only serves to divide the working class against each other.

I mean "leftist" with the emphasis on class.

I'm not afraid to recognize that conservative policies tend to shorten the lives of working class people. I'm not afraid to recognize that capitalism profits more when poor people go hungry.

Conservatives have gone all in on capitalism and refuse to recognize it's stark and deadly flaws, that even Adam Smith openly admitted.

When the capitalist ruling class exposes their greed, incompetence, and criminality, conservatives will always say that they are just "bad apples". The fact that their greed, incompetence, and criminality is rewarded by the capitalist system is brushed off as irrelevant.

For conservatives, capitalism can never fail. Only we can fail capitalism. In the same way that people worship the Volcano God. If the Volcano is angry then we must sacrifice more of our children to appease capitalism. Of course these free-market fundamentalists consistently fail and literally never succeed. But like anyone trapped in a cult, when facts get in the way then you disregard facts.

Go anywhere on the internet and you can find them. It's always the fault of the government. The government can never do anything right.
