I'm coining that term. (At this moment, if you Google search the term it gets ZERO results.)
It means "fear of competition".
It's what leftists suffer from.
They fear competition.
It's why they want enforced outcomes and don't trust the free market.
They want daddy/mommy/nanny/big brother to determine outcomes... "for the common good" of course.
It's why they would rather have regulations - such as CAFE standards for fleets (if not nations!), than letting people buy the car with the MPG they want and can afford.
It's why they want quotas/"affirmative action" and price controls, and protectionism and tariffs and so on.
Perhaps all we need to do to defeat leftism is to get leftists into phobia therapy!
