First Things has a thoughtful piece this morning on "Christian Leftism".
It's good as far as it goes, but still misses the underlying idolatrous truth. That is, subordinating the one true God and His Kingdom with the (very, very) false promises of secularism, centralized / unrestrained power, and socialism / communism. This false utopian ideal, condemned by the Church, is as far from Christianity as you can get and is a trap from which escape is extremely difficult.
