You seem to have the common misconception that the left is some all-powerful force, despite the fact that right now conservatives hold literally all the levers of power in the US (the major world power) & UK government (where I'm from). If your location tag is correct then you should know that your country's government is a deeply conservative theocracy also. How conservatives can observe that and still judge the left to be currently more powerful is beyond me,
The conservatives may hold Government but in the Anglosphere at least, the Left (and increasingly the loopy Left) hold the Culture and significantly influence the discourse that establishes our social mores and norms. The Left dominates the education system, the media, and the arts organisations. They also dominate employment in the Civil Service / Public Service and increasingly hold the positions in quasi-governmental organisations that also influence the Culture. Things like human rights commissions with quasi-judicial status but which are unelected.
