So nobody on the "far left" can have genuine feelings of wanting to make progressive change or greater inclusion or whatever? It's all a sham for power and control? This just seems to be the virtue signaling meme the right is so fond of to discredit any progressive change repackaged in a less confrontational form.

You still haven't explained what the extreme left is and how they get more power and control from mimicking virtue? People like AOC or Bernie Sanders or Ralph Nadar have almost no real power and control.

And a real extreme left figure like Chris Hedges has virtually been shut out of the public forum or discussion as have scholars like Noam Chomsky.

This doesn't seem like power and control. It seems like voices in the wilderness.
