I've recently been examining extreme conservative and extreme liberal values, and I've noticed a pattern.
Extreme right values are usually focused completely and totally on the good of society in the long-term, and completely neglect the issues of quality of an individuals life, fairness, and personal happiness.
Extreme left values are usually focused on individual rights, fairness, and progress that can reduce social cohesion and increase risk of future collapse.
So in other words, the right can be seen as a manifestation of an extremely collective-oriented perspective, and the left is a manifestation of an extremely individual-oriented perspective.
It seems that both of them have opposite blind spots. Do you suppose this means that without the right, we would have chaos, and without the left, we would have stagnation? Do the two sides rely on maintaining their mutual conflict to exist?
