The Left vs. Right DIchotomy

Often times I find myself more or less trying to find a bridge between Left and Right.  While the Left has some whacky ideas such as nationalization of industries and redistribution of wealth they do have their valid points when it comes to certain individual freedoms.  Same can be said for the Right, though I abhor denying marriage rights to gays they d bring up valid points concerning the religious liberties of businesses owned by religious folks who don’t wish to partake in catering to what they consider sin.  Sounds stupid, but in a way it isn’t.  Would you really want to serve one of Hitlers henchmen if he walked in?  I sincerely doubt it due to the moral conflict that would be involved. So to those who cry nay at businesses who want to deny service to gay couples need to step out of their own shoes and into their oppositions shoes in order to understand.  Plus, capitalism is the biggest equalizer in that low revenue due to the businesses new policy would make them reverse their decision and become gay friendly.

While both sides view their ideology as the most righteous and the opposition the most corrupt, both sides who acquire that mentality are also delusional.  If either ideology was truly the paramount ideology than it would be perfect without question or doubt and the partisan division we see today would not exist.  There’s nothing more perilous to humanity than zealotry and the Left of the political aisle is becoming the Nazis they despise.  They goose step in formation to the drums and trumpets of their masters without a questioning soul.  As with each action there will always be an opposite reaction which means the Right will start to be come radicalized in order to counter the radical Left that has assumed power.  This is of course will lead to nothing good as we are seeing in the Ukraine.  So which will it be?  Civility or barbarity?  I hope the common sense that still flows in our veins will prevail over the coming years and that we reverse the current course to Hell we are heading.

This isn’t a plea in some Kumbyah way, but rather trying to encourage both sides to step back ad look at things from their opponents angle.  A 360 degree perspective is a far more better view than a 90 degree view.  More can be seen and understood that way while the other simply narrows the view of the human experience.  If we can understand each other than we can find the elusive middle ground in issues that affect all Americans.  If we swing to the extreme either way, freedom and liberty will die out.  That’s not some half assed guess it’s fact backed by history.

My focus is on the spiritual, mystical, and magickal aspects of Heathenism and forms of practice that make Heathenism valid for the modern times, and present day needs, and as a path towards enlightenment and spiritual growth.
