Still, the alpha male in me is torn between the underlying motivations of the far left and far right. The far left wants a higher quality of life for everyone at the expense of a few, damn them if they don't like it. The far right wants the highest quality of life for the few that can only come at the expense of the many, damn the consequences.
Until the internet came along these extremes were usually only found in small percentages of the population that knew when to **** or get popped in the pie hole. Now, with the advent of instant access to information and the ability to hide behind a computer any unfiltered, unreviewed information can be spewed out and poured over any lazy mind with enough time to read it.
The flocks are like two groups of protestors yelling at each other from across the street. "DO THIS!, DO THAT!" Only they've stopped yelling about their ideas and are now fervently trying to warn the opposite side of the clever pickpockets they see working behind the other group. But no one ever turns around to look so they all get their wallets stolen.
Meanwhile, the rest of us drive by and think "Get a life".
