Leftists believe in Utopia, but not in the real one that even they might one day discover.
Instead, they view it as a designer-utopia: one they imagine, raise awareness of, and then force it upon everyone else.
None of them could ever recognize an enlightened being, because such a being would never resemble their imaginary idea of what one should be.
In fact, every spiritual woe that people have, is the result of imagining the unimaginable, comparing the one to the other, and discarding anything they don't recognize.
It is probably a grave mistake to go around defining things about which one knows nothing.
But such are the things of dreams!
I believe the world is going to hell in a VERY stupid basket...
