Why does the left write so much better than the right? Let alone books, even when you read newspapers of both sides, the quality of writing is instantly discernable. What created this difference?

this proves the left is a bunch of midwits because empathy decreases markedly once you move up to actual genius area of the Gaussian curve. that's where you find all the schizo geniuses, psychos and spergs who are utterly incapable of empatizing with anyone

Depends what you mean by the "left" and the "right"

Actual leftists i.e. Commies tend to be patrician tier educated or self educated with a disciplined art school or literature degree or pedigree from family background. Their writing is often extremely advanced and impenetrable to normies, which ironically doesn't suit their cause at all.

Succdems and libs (who you might be referring to as "left") tend to be normies, run of the mill, who can only write trash think pieces and long wordy essays for the Guardian or NYT that say mostly nothing in 3,000 words.

Centrists I would also include in that category of midwit libs who did well in high school, the annoying dorks who decided that they were the most intelligent person in the world because of that. These are the people who are producing the journalist-tier writing today.

Meanwhile you have the right who are an interesting complex of subtypes. There are mongoloid lumpen prole retards and country-normies who aren't worth mentioning because they don't write. Then there are the journalist tier rightists, Peterson shapiro carlson etc, who are similar to the journalist tier leftists but usually with even more of a smug self satisfaction about the effectiveness of their own self-education. They usually suck ass at writing, take a look at Peterson's book for instance, it is like an essay a 12th grader would write, just much much longer.

Fast forward to the fascist right and you get to the non-normie side of the spectrum. These are typically kids who came from old money and had a good education. Most of their childhood would have been spent being indoctrinated into bourgeois values and being given an elite education. These are the pale weirdos who always wore suits to school, if they went to a school at all and weren't just privately tutored. They tend to write better than the other rightists of course on account of their superior education, but they don't equal the ultra left's arthouse vibe on account of the very same cultural reactionism which is so inculcated in them that they do not expose themselves to new ideas and trends in art.

Not necessarily, but it's usually the case. Intelligence is hereditary, meaning mentally gifted people are likely to be born in middle/upper class milieu. Not being overly preoccupied with individualstic advancement, person like this is inevitably drawn to humanism and socialist ideas. A poor, uneducated, bitter person on the other hand is drawn to easily accessible and undemanding cope mechanisms like traditional religion or national pride.

Step one. It gets flagged
Step two. Janitor wake up/finish lunch etc. and check flags
Step three. Janitor asks the moderator in a chat room
Step four. Moderator comes back from work and checks chat
Step five. Permission is granted and the post is removed and the troll is permabanned
Step six. Troll resets router and posts it again.

>Why does the left write so much better than the right?
This is not even true and saying this is a sign of being poorly read. Consider Dostoevsky, Eliot, Yeats, Pound, Mann, Bloy, Borges, Gottfried Benn, Mishima, Hamsun, Celine, Waugh, d'Annunzio, Gertrude Stein, DH Lawrence, etc. Literary modernism was almost perfectly evenly split between writers on the Right and the Left. And if we look backward we see that people like Pope, Aphra Benn, Wordsworth, Johnson, Dryden, Hume, etc. were Tories. Cicero, the greatest stylist of ancient Rome, was a dyed in the wool conservative. Of all the arts, writing has perhaps the highest concentration of reactionaries. I say that as a social democrat.
>when you read newspapers of both sides, the quality of writing is instantly discernable
Maybe in Anglophone world, with its mutant degenerated tabloid version of "conservatism". I doubt this is the case with Le Figaro or whatever. That said there are lots of evil neoliberal publications with fine writing.

Rightists aren't as educated. They're perfectly fine and happy with making money through trades or financial institutions while probably still ascribing to a religion too. Moving to the left happens naturally as you get more and more educated if you ask me.

Yeah during WWI he wrote a nationalist, pro-war, conservative tract called 'Reflections of a Nonpolitical Man' and was associated with the Conservative Revolutionary movement for a while. However he became sympathetic to the Weimar Republic and socialism after the war. He described himself as someone who runs to the other side of a ship when it's tipping too far in one direction.
