What people are complaining about on this blog is the kind of Leftism based on Rousseau.
The difference is vast. But one thing that does stand out is Rousseau does not have any human rights. He has only the General Will. That is his center of gravity. To John Lock the beginning point is the rights of the individual.
But these rights are not more than the Ten Commandments translated from what one person can not do to another to being right that the individual has not to be stolen from.
But the difference between rights to get free stuff and rights to be left alone has been obliterated in the USA.
