    I recycle because big brother here in the UK tells me off when I put a glass bottle in the black bin bag. You guys have it so lucky that you don't get told off every time that happens. This totalitarian state is just toooooooo controlling of me!

    I know that, that's why I'm asking; I don't know what you mean by "authoritarian from the left". Can you speak in layman's terms please, some of us haven't studied political jargon.
    no worries, Google defines it as:
    "Authoritarian personality is a state of mind or attitude characterized by belief in absolute obedience or submission to one's own authority, as well as the administration of that belief through the oppression of one's subordinates."

    which essentially means someone who thinks that what they believe is the absolute truth and thinks that what there ideas of what is right and wrong should be forced onto everyone else because anyone who doesn't agree with them is incorrect.

    Haha, it can come out of compassion, and the understanding that others need stirring in the right direction, but, ultimately it's up to them to make their own decisions.

    well these people don't understand letting people decide for them selves, most authoritarians left or right wing both believe they are being compassionate the issue of why isn't the problem its that they arrogantly believe that their ideas are above others ideas.

    Yeah, I do hate being fined for speeding. I mean, why bother right? Why would they want to discourage me from driving at a speed that endangers others? Sooooo stupid right?

    I don't know about them, but, there is an understanding we can all tap into, if we are made aware of it. Although, it is and will always be up to the individual. The way we are heading very helpful.

    Why does IS exist in the first place? I really dont think it's all because they dislike the population.
    They dislike the differences. People who don't agree with them will be killed,evidently.
