    Now, some people may say that the right-wing is bad but wouldn't the implications of left-wing be more bad? It's the same thing with capitalism. Capitalism might be bad but it might still be better than socialism, communism, and the like. Masculinity might be bad but Total Femininity might make things worse.

    We talked about this before and probably in the altright thread. Both sides are control-freaks seeking to impose their will on the world. The Right cannot tolerate the fact that somewhere, someone may be having a bit of fun. The Left can't tolerate the fact that somewhere, someone may be serious. So, is it better to die of hypothermia or hyperthermia? If you're asking me, I'd say it's better to live at roomtemp.



    Also Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Socrates (apparently), and seemingly everyone who is anyone has said that.

    So, the best thing that can happen in government is for the Right and Left to always be fighting in deadlock and that way they can accomplish nothing except what is centrist.

    Just happened to stumble upon:

    One of Richard Nixon's top advisers and a key figure in the Watergate scandal said the war on drugs was created as a political tool to fight blacks and hippies, according to a 22-year-old interview recently published in Harper's Magazine.

    "The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people," former Nixon domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman told Harper's writer Dan Baum for the April cover story published Tuesday.

    Sure, but what if on a technical level, someone demands proportion, composition, or percentage?

    In other words, to what degree is the Right or the Left correct?

    What if the Right is 70-80% more correct than the Left?

    What if Masculinity is slightly superior to Femininity?

    It's like in terms of MBTI, people sort of have to look up to Thinkers over Feelers.....

    The problems come down to the Meaning of 'Correct'?

    We might never fully agree on what is correct so maybe we should start with what Isn't correct and try to work our way backwards to something more fair/reasonable.

    The right and left are both incorrect and there is no % to apply. It's 100% or 0%. If you're saying the right may have 80% more centrist ideas than the left, then they are centrist ideas and not ideas in the category of the right. That would be like saying you want your room to be "hot" because "hot" contains more "roomtemp" than "cold". Both are extremes and the very fact that they are extremes says we don't want them. Everything in moderation. There's always a middle way.

    It's the same with thinkers and feelers.

    Mark Passio had the idea that when Jesus said "Let your eye be single", what he meant was the unity of the polar. If your eye (your perception of the world) is too left-brained or right-brained, then you are not in unity and will not understand the world. I mean, if one side of your brain doesn't work, that's a disability, right?

    Regarding genders, men should be masculine and women should be feminine because together they are a unity. They complement. The assertive masculine goes with the submissive feminine. If you have two masculines, they will butt heads. If you have two feminines, they will be bored. If you have two half-breeds, then you have 2 half-breeds instead of a unity because each person is already unified by being a half-breed.

    That's my thoughts on that

    That reminds me that Alan Watts said that the hindus can't define what god is; only what he isn't. (Or maybe it was the buddhists. One of 'em, anyway.) They say god is undefinable or he wouldn't be god. So, maybe it's an analogy in that we really can't articulate the perfect thing to do, but only what not to do.
