I never tire of pointing out to people that Leftism is the only socio-political philosophy in which intent is adjudged superior to consequence. In simpler terms, it means that quotes like this are on the money:
“It is amazing how far the left will go to hide the truth. Identity politics is killing this country’s competitiveness in the world and all the left cares about is quotas.”

…but miss the point, in that Leftism doesn’t care about the malevolent consequences of identity politics because the “intent” behind said politics is noble, and therefore whatever happens thereafter is irrelevant (see: Mao’s Great Leap Forward, Stalin’s destruction of the kulaks, Pol Pot’s forced agrarianism, etc. ad infinitum). In other, still-simpler words, it’s not amazing; it’s policy.
