Entropy, disorder always increases. Life exists, a living creature exists, by increasing its own internal order, at the expense of consuming external order and excreting disorder.
A functional society generates internal order, like a living organism. So the individual organisms of the society find safety, peace, order, and secure property rights. And from these intangible forms of order, they get more tangible, individual organism scale forms of order: food in the supermarket, electricity at the switch, water at the tap. Leftism consumes the order of society to grow and live, as a parasite or a cancer consumes the order of the organism in order to live. And eventually the lights go out, as in Venezuela or North Korea.
Consider a cancer cell. On the micro scale, what it does is indistinguishable from what a good cell does. It grows, it absorbs nutrients from the bloodstream.
But it replaces the highly ordered structure of the good cells with structurelessness, with mere growth, without regard for the organismic functions that a healthy cell is performing.
The order of the organism is apparent only to teleological thinking.
The order of society is in Chesterton’s fences. Leftism takes down Chesterton’s fences, deeming them irrelevant obstacles, as bones and blood vessels and lungs and heart and brains are irrelevant obstacles to cancer cells.
The ensuing disorder becomes visible before you get to the North Korean point where the lights go out.
