Deconstructing The Right/Left Paradigm

1989  Oaxaca-Zipolite (6)I’m no fan of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).  So far, he has exhibited none of the courage of his father, but all of his right-wing zero-government dogma that makes Illuminati banksters lick their chubby little lips.

But it sure was a hoot when March of 2013 neo-cons warmongers like Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) squirmed and bristled at Paul’s filibuster attack on the Obama Administration’s drone policy.

Equally entertaining was watching MSNBC liberal parakeets from Maddow to Schultz to O’Donnell make fun of Paul’s 13-hour filibuster, before being corrected by more brain-laden lefty guests who weren’t too keen on having drones circling over their houses in the future either.

It was a moment of hope, where the muddy middle of the political road – which the powers-that-be strive to keep well-trafficked – washed out and was, for a fleeting moment, discredited.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t for a second buy into the currently in vogue notion proposed by Alex Jones and the like, that the entire right/left paradigm is a fallacy. Once you’ve toiled on a jobsite for a lazy bellicose boss/owner, that idea doesn’t have a chance in hell of sticking.

When you’ve traveled to places where people with names like Sandinista, ZANU-PF, FMLN, New People’s Army and Viet Minh have formed guerrilla armies to struggle against a rich land-hoarding oligarchy, always backed by US corporations and their European bankers; that dog don’t hunt anymore.

Historically, the right/left paradigm is as real as it gets in politics.

Trouble is, in the US there is no organized left and hasn’t been since the days when Socialist leader Eugene Debs was in jail, while International Workers of the World rabble rouser Wild Bill Haywood was on his way into exile in Russia to avoid the right-wing death squads who killed many of his Wobblie comrades.

To call President Obama a liberal is a stretch. To call him a Communist is absurd. He is a moderate Democrat.  In this country that means right of center.  If you don’t believe me, ask the widow of Hugo Chavez.

Obama’s continuance of Reagan-inspired monopoly capitalist policies has created the greatest wealth concentration in this country’s history. Socialism? Come on man!

Many well-meaning right-wing “truthers” have no background in political theory. Maybe they grew up wealthy and unconsciously became Republicans. Maybe they never took any Political Science classes in college.

Maybe they never found themselves behind a shovel for ten hours a day, seven days a week for minimum fucking wage while some asshole making ten times that spent his day in the heated cab of a brand new pickup driving aimlessly about.

Still, politics should be thought of as a circle, since circles (not straight lines) constitute all of natural reality. So at some point extreme right meets extreme left on the “far side”. There may very well be a shit storm if one or both have a real chance to take power – which has also never happened in the US. Nevertheless, the two extremes do meet and can find themselves agreeing on many things.

It was clear to the nation that Republicans had abused the filibuster to the point of Congressional atrophy.  Thus it is not very popular right now.  Kudos to Sen. Rand Paul for having the courage to use the filibuster as it should be used – to bring into the national political conversation a topic on which both progressives and paleo-cons can agree.

These fucking drones have got to go!

Maybe someday Americans will realize that being in the middle of the road isn’t really where it’s at.  Bob Dylan said that.  So did Chrissie Hynde.  Don’t be a Pretender.

  1. Ed has had it...

    The ONE WORLD gang has no right/left. only their way… and that is how Amerika is run..

    • Ed has had it… is right. The Elites get away with mass murder, literally. Without the rule of law, why even get into left/right ideology? Maybe we deserve what we get, one false flag after another.

    Keep at it! Great stuff 🙂

  3. Creating polarities in the political spectrum is the classic method to keep people focused on their differences and united in assaulting the supposed ideologies of their adversaries. These polarities are expressed in party affiliations and in of themselves create divisions which are not a natural human method of problem solving. The left/right paradigm is a Machiavellian technique that keeps the public from uniting on common issues due to their subservient party loyalties.

  4. just get the mug shots of the class A stock holders of the
    Federal Reserve, the Owners of the Media
    and the crack whores in Congress…

    a left hook and a right upper cut..
    a swift kick to the groin
    and in the ovens they go

    Truth + Justice = Peace

  5. Hooray for classes:

    My junior high social studies teacher floated a circle. He was unsure, to his credit. An impulse to bend a ruler is a clue something’s wrong with it. Rockefeller praised Mao. OK, nature has circles. Make one out of her electromagnetic spectrum.

    Such tripe we absorb from Tavistocks’s sheepdogs: Wm F Buckley Jr vs Noam Chomsky, Rush vs Ellen, O’Reilly vs Cooper, Andre the Giant vs Hulk Hogan…er, sorry, mixed my channels. The Tavistock Spectrum ™ limits discourse to desired outcomes. Poof! goes a pole of the real one. Nothing to see here, move along …

    … Quickly now! Idle not in fictional concepts so very … gauche … to our ethical sensibilities. Everyone KNOWS government MUST exist or people could not handle freedom.

    The Federal Hotair Reserve could not exist without a GOVERNMENT MONOPOLY CHARTER to emit hot air. It isn’t hard to corrupt with easy money. Which is why special business about gold and silver coin appears in W’s famous piece of paper…of course, Keynesians know better….blessed be their pedophile instructor….

    The Banker’s Manifesto of 1892 was the earlier template. Based on Tavistock’s great success ever since, you needn’t worry about smaller government any time this century or next.

  6. In order to profit and change societies through war, you have to have opposing ideologies. Ideologies that the masses can get behind, pick up guns and march off to war over. Many wars in the last 100 years were instigated using the right and left Paradigm of capitalism and communism. The battle for workers rights and working conditions in this country’s history, where many of our ancestors fought with pick ax handles in the street with union busters, is a horse of a somewhat different color. This struggle took place well before communism attempted to influence and control unions in this country in the 1930’s and were spontaneous and a naturally occurring result of horrible working conditions. The working rights our father’s shed blood over against the robber barons in the late 1800’s are slowly being taken back. I see the right and left paradigm today as two extreme ideologies using the struggle to take control of the means of production and the distribution of production, and placing these in the hands of the international bankers, big oil, and the large corporations that Dean has spent so much of his life exposing. The love of money is the root of all evil, 1 Ti 6:10, and is a force that knows no restraint.
    I doubt the working man in the street can win the struggle against it.

  7. I cannot praise the work of Dean Henderson too highly to you; he’s done an immense amount to bring history to the public, much the same way that Howard Zinn did.
