[T]he problem is that we (With Agency) simply cannot imagine the amount of time the left (lacking agency) thinks about inequality or status or being left behind. We just can’t imagine the obsession that they find in every moment. Their frame, constantly reinforced by some sort of rejection or other signal, or interpretation of some event as ‘being left out, or left behind, or less, or not rewarded for their contributions.’
They can’t imagine how we can be so rational (they assume we have their psychological problems) but we can’t imagine how obsessed they are with their inability to obtain from others what they could obtain from parents by childish display.
