Response to hypergrove (Reply #18)

44. I say basically the same thing:

... in this thread.

I liked it except for the last remark ...

"When I grew up, the Left had all the crazies, today, the Right has all the crazies." (Paraphrasing)

No, Governor, the Left has usually been spot on about things; throughout history, it's the Progressive Left that has more often than not been proven correct. The Left (and I'm talking about actual Leftists) have as their (and mine) moral imperative, the the good of society (and in an anarchist sense, the individual which is intertwined). The Right, historically speaking, has as its moral imperative, the good of the few, and the fewer, as profit, wealth, power, et cetera is their ultimate objective.

Sorry to nitpick that last statement.

The above, obviously, is a rough generalization; but I think is a good overview between goals of the Left vs. the Right.
