“There are two sides to every issue. One side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.”
This is a quote from Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.
And, it’s correct.
The Left has spent an inordinate amount of time and energy demonizing the concept of “seeing things in Black and White”. (Followed quickly by telling you that you shouldn’t talk about religion and politics during “polite” conversation.) The reason for this is Leftist Progressives know their victories depend on compromise, ignorance, or both, because their demands viewed outright, and understood, would always be rejected.
Socialists realize you must be “nudged” in the direction they want you to go… that is, when they lack the ability to Force you in that direction.
As Rand has explained, seeing things in Black and White has always been equated with seeing things in terms of Good and Evil. If you cannot see things this way then you have not spent enough time thinking about your premises… in other words, the foundation of exactly what you believe. This exercise alone will clarify your thinking. You might find yourself being a Socialist… hopefully not, but at least you will get closer to the truth.
Once you have given the proper amount of thought to an issue you arrive at the Right decision and the Wrong decision. Everything “In the Middle” is simply a compromise with the Wrong Decision.
This is why “Bipartisanshitt” and Moderates, such as Establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan, John McCain and Karl Rove, who wail “why can’t we all get along” are truly the misguided among us. The Governing Theories of Individual Freedom and Control over the Individual are mutually exclusive. They are oil and water. They do not mix. They cannot be mixed.
Compromise is why we are Broke and Printing Money as fast as we can.
Compromise is why past Congresses have run up the bill well past our ability to pay.
Compromise is why we are fighting against the last piece of the Socialist puzzle which is Obama Care.
Compromise is why Government is in every part of our lives.
Compromise is why the Government is listening to our phone calls and reading our mail.
Compromise is why we have lost our Right to Privacy… and by extension, our Freedom.
Either Embrace Evil… or Reject it. But don’t Compromise with it.
Getting Along has Got us Here.
