. A genuine leftist feels he must convert or destroy the other side as part of a great moral struggle.

Like the Al Quata.

Hardcore leftist ideology does seem to have a quasi-religious feel to it insofar as it is almost completely insulated from facts. You can quote data to a leftist for as long as you like demonstrating the repeated failures of past social experiments, but nothing will come of it. There is always an excuse to the effect that some person, or society, was to blame for the failure. It never seems to occur to them that their basic assumptions about human nature and the way the world works may be flawed.
