Important perspective from a former Bolshevik

The authoritarian left, through political movements such as Black Lives Matter, is on the rise around the Western world. Peter Hitchens uses his experience as a young Bolshevik to make sense of the danger it poses to what he sees as an increasingly gullible society.
"The generation now coming out of Western schools is unable to distinguish good from bad. Even those words are unacceptable. This results in impaired thinking ability. " Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Died 2008

You musn't assume that an leftist academic cannot understand outcomes and consequences.   You are better to assume that the current actions will be based on the immediate consequences to their careers, and not the longer term consequences that seem obvious to you, and probably is obviously to them.
