The right wing and the media themselfs try to argue the media as being on the left, because the left is the right position. No oxymoron intended.
While I doubt it's a manufactured nonsense, the left/right paradigm is still nonsense. Neither left-wingers and right-wingers are ''right'', and
both, shall we say, lack a certain degree of critical thinking skills and the ability to think freely.
Any free-thinking and open-minded person would not restrict their views on any given subject to the narrow confines of one particular ideological
wing, and any logical person would assess and analyse the myriad of issues that make up society as a whole, on a subject-by-subject basis, free of any
pre-conceived political leanings and favouritisms that may slant an objective conclusion on the subject.
Proof, as if proof were needed, that this left/right divide is a load of bollocks, is the fact that those who proudly boast to be 'left-wing' or
'right-wing' adopt a religious like zealotry when holding, arguing and defending their political beliefs, and have a similar ''I'm right, you're
wrong'' attitude that is redolent of those who hold more 'robust' religious views.
So, while the left/right paradigm wasn't created by the supposed 'tptb', it certainly serves a useful purpose for them, as it keeps the gullible
types in-fighting by playing on that most destructive of human personality flaws: one-upmanship.
Don't get me wrong, some
left-wing beliefs are fine, just as some
right-wing beliefs are, it's when people adopt and identify with one
political-wing as a whole, that the trouble really starts, and leads them down the slippery slope of adopting the generic right/left position on
numerous issues, at the expense of forming a conclusion based on critical thinking and objectivity.
