James Michael Curley, a four-time mayor of Boston, used wasteful redistribution to his poor Irish constituents to buy votes, while he used incendiary rhetoric/policies to encourage richer citizens to emigrate from Boston, thereby shaping the electorate in his favor.

The Curley effect is inefficient redistributive policies pushed by incumbent politicians to shape the electorate through emigration of their opponents or reinforcement of class identities. In other words, California (and the lefts) political model.
We can't communicate effectively if we don't agree on what words or terms mean. Cultural Marxists
decided that since they uusally can't win through honesty, logic, history and facts, they could win by twisting/perverting meanings (especially in popular culture and colleges), to distort every discussion into a debate on pedantics, or use truthspeak as a litmus test for who is properly indoctrinated/compliant.
