When the Right tries to discredit the left, the Right likes to say that the left is "Naive" and "Out of Touch with Reality".

But what's more naive and out of touch with reality then arguing-IN ALL SERIOUSNESS-that....

That a Border Wall will keep foreigners from entering the U.S illegally?

Or that legalizing discrimination based on Race, Sex, Sexual Preference and Religion will make xenophobia go away?

Or that criminalizing Abortion will make Abortions stop?

Or that privatizing Social Security, Medicare, the Postal Service and other public services will make said services run more fairly and efficiently?

Or that if the rich didn't have to pay taxes, they'd share the extra money they accumulated by not paying income taxes with everyone instead of hoarding it for themselves?

Or that if Divorce were illegal, couples would work on their problems instead of trying to kill each other to get out of the marriage?

He found people struggling to cope within a benefits system designed to force people into work with built-in delays to payments. Many have been referred to food banks with some still going hungry.

A medical school at the University of Sunderland will be launched next year with the aim of breaking down social barriers to medicine and training a new generation of working-class doctors.

The university’s vice chancellor, Sir David Bell, likened Sunderland to an “insurgent” in medicine, since the school was established under the umbrella of government policy to widen participation in education.

Why coming out as working class was harder than coming out as gay

Why coming out as working class was harder than coming out as gay

"I’ve left the closet twice – as a gay man, and as an academic from a working-class background. The second was at least as hard"
