Left culture

There is no "Left" in America.

& I cringe every time I see that term, "the Left," used as if there were some sort of "Left" group with some sort of power in America. I see people here and elsewhere who call themselves "leftists," as if they had some sort of "Left" to join. I suppose it's harmless. Of course, it's now fashionable to criticize "the Left," just as it's now fashionable to blame Russia for Trump.
