I've noticed your efforts to expose the left/right game previously. And I applaud them, just as I applaud all Independent Thinkers, Liberatrians,
Moderates, Centrists - in short: Sane and Balanced citizens of the World.
I grew up under as a "right-wing"
And my views were extreme as well.
I saw abortion as murder.
I saw drugs as equal to Hell-bound activity.
I saw not one thing wrong with anything America did because it was in our name and to protect us.
In other words, I was naive as Hell, and a Christian bully, telling others they were going there.
That was in my teenage years.
This was in most cases the churches fault, my parents fault, but ultimately my fault in the end.
It lead me to making loud accusations and getting my butt kicked because I did not know diplomacy.
Are You "Right-Wing Fringe", or "Left-Wing Fringe" and How Will They Push You
Within the thread above there is a story where fifteen teenagers intended to kill me because of my mouth.
By eighteen I knew how to overthrow any Government due to my knowledge of Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece.
As well as a tactical understanding of the Art of War, military strategy, and knowing how to spot corrupt Police.
Yet, if you, or anyone else asked me to do so, I would have called the F.B.I. and reported you as a subversive.
After the event in the thread above though I snapped and changed from being a bullied and terrorized "right-wing"
Christian decrying the
abominations of Hell on everyone, being a Christian bully, to the exact polar opposite, becoming a bully-buster, and leading others towards safety,
when I was pulled out of public school and put into a Christian homeschool, for high school.
Well, this Christian homeschool was non-denominational, for one.
Without the strigent beliefs of others I had encountered.
I also took Greek for a language and learned to interpret both the language as well as the subtle meanings of language.
As well I began learning diplomacy, leadership skills, and public service.
I was constantly volunteered into situations by my mother.
She would bushwhack me during our homeschool fieldtrips because she threw me into the spotlight to speak on the location or what the locations was
about, because it was usually based upon something I knew, IE : fieldtrip to a museum for sunken ships with displays of gold, pirate memorabilia, and
flags, well I knew a lot about piracy and history.
She threw me into the spotlight wholly unprepared.
Fieldtrip to a college where they were demonstrating Roman armor, sword tactics, and speaking on Rome?
She threw me into the spotlight wholly unprepared.
I think you get the point.
As well a requirement of homeschool was volunteering for community service.
At first I picked the library but due to a love of reading and not being able to read while volunteering I switched.
I became then a Police Explorer
, a branch of the Boy Scouts, even though then I did not know that.
I guess you could say I was not only Baptised under Christianity and in water but by fire and tribulation.
I had no choice because I was born a leader and I made huge mistakes but had to learn from them.
I know the differences now of how to act and how to lead and what not to do.
Every Time Someone Called You A Fascist, They Might Have Been Right, Is Your Ideology
I learned not to be extreme, right-wing
, or or not to be interpretationally misleading and left-wing
As well as this I learned to have a deep respect for research, cross-referencing, and digging for information.
My mom never bushwhacked me again by throwing me as a Christian before the lions because of that.
Now, I am a centralized person, I found my balance, people look to me for leadership whether I want it or not.
And I have known for quite some time in fact that neither the left
nor the right
That the truth lies in the middle of what they are both fighting about.
Lies, mis-directions, and smokescreens are their games, and they play them well.
Truth : The First Victim, The Last to Be Un-Buried, Never to Rest...
My search is for that truth in the middle because it is there if you search for it.
As well as all of the above, I began learning foreign and domestic policy of our nation, and learned of how things really work.
Our nation is a great one but I am troubled by those who lead it and committ actions in our names.
Often they are playing false diplomacy, duplicitous actions through foreign and domestic policy, and lying wholly.
I am a Centrist
and a registered Independent
and I see through the games of political partisanship.
Instead of always leading people though, I teach them how to lead themselves, both by pointing to leadership skills they already have yet are unaware
of themselves, I do not fight their fights for them, but teach them how to spot bullies, how to fight those bullies on their own terms and without
violence, by out-smarting, out-thinking, and out-manuevering.
And I am now an adult leader in the Boy Scouts of America with many positions of authority.
