The Left is EVIL!!!!!!!
    #1449549 - 04/11/03 01:48 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Or is it the Right is evil?

Here's my point.

We have people from all across the spectrum here.  It is not a political stance that makes people evil.  In fact, I don't think anyone in here is "evil".  At the very worst they might have not thought an issue through or perhaps their reason is clouded with emotion.

None of that makes anyone "evil".

I would hope that each and every one of you would realize that each political ideology can come from a caring heart.

There are people concerned about the environment that truly care about our natural resources and their are people who care more about people and jobs than they do the environment.  Point is, both care.

Abortionists who care about women's health and the quality of their life and Anti-abortionists who care about babies and their lives.

So let's not think that the other side is evil.  Most of them are not.

Each side usually wants to see their solutions to the problems because they think they work and are the most fair.

So flame me, it's what I think. :wink:

I am evil. As a Laissez-faire Capitalist, I am by definition evil itself.

Fear me!

Both sides are extremely evil and decide for you what is best. They are not the extremes of evil as an authoritarian government will leave no rights left for the individual. The only side I do not consider evil is the libertarian government or ideology. All of the rest want to try to make things better for the average citizen, when in reality the only thing that can make things better is to go out and apply yourself as a productive member of society. Welfare should be the first thing eradicated as the government decides to steal your money before you can decide that you want to invest it or spend it. Welfare is the ultimate in morally wrong policy. The war on drugs is not nearly as confining as income taxes. The government should allow you to pay taxes for what you think is fit. Personally I would supprt a higher defense budget and more money towards transportation costs and as I would no longer be paying for ninety percent of the useless and wasteful policies in place today. Tax breaks for failures is incredibly stupid as it just encourages stupidity. How is this the least bit rational? and how does the govenment expect our country to survive the ever evolving atmosphere of this planet? Restrictions in place for businesses are another of the irrational policies in place. Business that create an inferior or harmful product will be turned away far before the government's agencies will have a chance to survey the product. With more people working in private business (due to less government workers) wages will go down which will result in lower prices for products. The overall efficency of our economy will sky-rocket as useless members die off (it may sound cruel, how do you think we will ever evolve with the government supporting ignorance) and as the work force increases in size. With less money being spent by our government supporting agencies that sit around and pretend to function, the consumer will have much more personal allowance to spend as he sees fit, and when consumers are doing the spending the money goes directly to the most fit business and therefore encourages competition.

Well there you have it, why the libertarians when elected will raise America to be the economic and socail super power it once was.

Trust me we no longer live in a world where greed is good. Andthe few that think that way are punished by our government. Why are donations tax deductible? so that businesses that want to reinvest in themselves have to pay higher taxes. Is that fair?

Nice comments, MM. Your post reminds me of what I was trying to say about the dichotomy of individual freedom on one side and social responsibiltiy on the other. It seems that, being the knee-jerking reactionaries we are, we move further toward whichever one we espouse in part because of our dislike of the kinds of people who espouse the other.

I was thinking of saying something like "a bird needs both wings to fly" but, no, that's too cheesy.

And pinky, I really was hoping to hear how you saw the two reconcile. (Admitedly I'm skeptical, but you already knew that.)

Good and evil do not exist, only the positive and the negative. Either is subjectionable to the individual based on the circumstance. Thus it is possible to deliver goodly "justice" to the criminal whom stole, but if that criminal stole food and was starving his intentions may be to feed his family (good), while to the authority figure he may be degrading society etc...but my point is they both think they're correct and doing good for themselves and others. So "good" and "evil" are irrelevant terms in nature and are attributed to the positive and negative aspects of our life.
...its hard to explain...
