I really enjoyed reading this article and thought I would share with the group. This excellent article best explains the false left-right paradigm and its relationship to our cognitive dissonance phenomena...
Democrats vs Republicans: The false paradigm of American politics
by Jordan Kane
What paradigm? That is the type of response one would receive from the average voter in the United States today. It reflects the clandestine ignorance of the majority of the populace today. So the question becomes, why does the population continue to believe in the so called, left-right paradigm?
People continue to believe in fallacies like the left-right paradigm because they are inclined for some reason- to make decisions based on their feelings, rather than objective logic or rational thought unfortunately.
There is a truism that convincingly explains why this happens. Neal Boortz, a political commentator who strikes the nail on the head often, but still partakes in the left-right paradigm wrote, there is often raw truth in insensitivity, just as you often find feel-good falsehoods and lies in compassion.
