Left versus right rivalry political lie

“The whole ‘conservative’ versus ‘liberal,’ ‘left’ versus ‘right’ rivalry is a lie. In the ridiculous political world where most people view each idea as either ‘conservative’ or ‘liberal,’ (or whichever word the political left prefers at the moment), those who love liberty confuse everyone. In the real world, though, there is only liberty versus authoritarianism. The rest is a diversion. Often one part of the political divide supports me on one topic while disagreeing with me on another. As a consequence, I continually get slandered as both a ‘far-right extremist’ and a ‘bleeding heart liberal.’ Often on the same day. Yes, it’s a crazy world.” (03/05/23)
