As Jordan Peterson points out, that "kill everyone in group X" has
been tried a few times in the 20th C. - and the leftist Marxists were
best at it.

I would (seriously) prefer a less violent transition out of this
global shithole-mess we seem to be in.

Re your assertion "The only solution is that we cannot let
those kind of people [neo-Marxists] vote", perhaps limit voting to
those who are employed?

I know there are no obvious silver bullets, and every potential part
of a solution will require much consideration of the interactions
with other parts of the system, but it's hard to imagine anything
other than another great war if we fail to institute "new"
principles, such as from The Ant and the Grasshopper:

(Yes some folks are genuinely disabled and the consequent "social
safety net" is humane - and not all problems have to be immediately
solved in order to avoid another great war.)
