- Sailing the Homeward Ocean
Victims are not equal. Seems odd for someone on the left of the spectrum to defend a universal ideal of victimhood. I always thought the left sought to elevate the persecuted and marginalised. Not carve out a level playing field for the benefit of the rich and powerful.
No, the aim is to stop anyone being victimised. To give the poor the same rights as the rich, not marginalise the rich instead of the poor.
