For all of you who think that the whole argument between left/right and liberal/conservative is a veneer and ruse of TPTB to divide and conquer us, I ask this question -
Why does the propaganda dept of TPTB, the MSM, ALWAYS bash the right/conservatives while providing a cover for the left/liberals and is ready to whitewash their problems? With that one question, I have skewered the argument that the differences between left and right are a non-issue, a mirage created by TPTB. If TPTB really wanted to set a ruse like this in concrete, the MSM would spend equal amounts of time bashing the liberal left as well as the conservative right (paleo well as neo). It would give the appearance that there is a "fair level playing field" in the market of ideas and further brainwash the masses. But this isn't the case. The MSM tries to brainwash the masses with stilted, hypocritical reporting that clears the leftist of any wrongdoing as soon as it happens while they fabricate stories to make the conservative seem perverse and wicked at every turn.
Are the two political parties made up by the same type of elites? Perhaps, and probably so. But if you think that means there is no difference between the liberal left and conservative right in terms of ideology in the current political parlance, you are very wrong. The difference between the collectivist and the libertarian are day and night, and one is right and one is wrong. Do you wish to deny that reality?
