Left Versus Right Versus Down Versus Up (Versus Thick Versus Thin)Submitted by Chris Dishwashski on Mon, 03/11/2013 - 20:34
People have left hands and right hands, left feet and right feet, even left brains and right brains. So it is natural to use left-right thinking to sort out many of the problems we face every day. The political class of course uses this dichotomous tendency of ours to control and steer the majority of people into two (apparently) different but equally easy-to-manage groups. The minority that chooses to overcome this divide is said to exist somewhere in the center of this great political expanse.
The UP Party seeks to transcend outdated left-center-right thinking with the recognition of two previously unrecognized options - up, and down.
And how to recognize politically up or politically down people?
-A down 'voter' would support laws that restrict unconventional activity, an up voter would support freedom
-A down voter sees entropy and disorder in the world and seek the creation of manmade laws to overcome it. Up voters appreciate the human mind and its ability to solve problems and overcome disintegrating forces
-A down party member fears change, so they attempt to slow the rate of change through the weight of ordinances, statutes and laws. Up party members would remove these heavy paper burdens
So what say you? Is this thinking too forward, is my brain put in backward? Have I come to my point roundabout or straightaway?
