This post doesn’t represent any special revelation: actually, there’s nothing new here. All it represents is an attempt to paint a central issue of our day in a different way – in a way that might somehow make a connection with someone who, before now, hadn’t quite made or understood the connection.
About the differences between the ideologies we call “Left and Right:”
Have you ever noticed that the Left complains about the right for being too self-interested while, at the same time, the majority of their policies are directed at making other people do their will? And that the Right also complains about the Left being too self-interested while, at the same time, the majority of their policies are directed at making other people leave them alone?
In other words, the Left is trying to control other people by making them do what the Left wants them to do — the way the Left wants it done, but the Right is trying to be left alone to do what it wants to do the way it wants to do it.
And that is how we get our political spectrum:
Tyranny (total control)————————Liberty (self-control)——–Anarchy (no control)
