When stripped of its many pretenses, the political left's objective is control. It goes about trying to gain that control using a very simple formula: creating an enemy, and creating resentment in as many people as possible against that created enemy. It seeks to exploit envy to satiate its greed for power and never lets a crisis (real or imagined) go to waste.

The left relies on blame and division to accumulate its power. However, without envy, the left could never attain such power in the first place. The enemies of the left and how it is used:

Doctors are money-grubbers instead of hardworking healers.

The white middle class are gun and religion clingers.

Grandmothers become typical white people.

Political opponents are racists and must be punished as enemies.

Advocates of traditional marriage are labeled "haters".

Those seeking more self-government are derided as "tea-baggers".

People whose sincerely held religious beliefs would be violated if forced to pay for someone else's birth control or abortion are now at "war with women".

Mothers who stay home to raise their children are sneered at for "never working a day in their lives".

Self-made women who do not toe the feminist line are the recipients of the most vile of public insults; etc.; etc.

The list of the demonized is endless because the left's greed for power is endless.
