"The left revolt in bad times, the right feast in good times, the republic enjoys happiness as long in safe times!" - SudhirPanda.com
First, Happy Independence Mayday to all patriots! The notion of the political left and right has a history, dating back to the French Revolution: Monarchists, right; revolutionaries, left. It was used to understand the Manichean battles of the Twentieth Century: Communists and their sympathizers, left; Fascists and their sympathizers, right. In India, the three popular types of gangs are no longer based on any idea or truth. In reality, India's politics is not about social work - it's pure development business related to investing for access to public treasury, manipulating law for favorites, advertising, brand building, creating hypes, TV shows, media PR, divide & rule, rapes, genocides, murders, goons, religion, hoopla items, etc... real social workers, change revolutionaries, idealists are tagged / silenced for good reasons!
If left dislikes other groups, it will make hoopla for few days, then back to square one. Other groups always dislike Left, and claims an global edge, though they are worse dumbs in reality. The right fights center but will always have back-channels to scratch each other in bad times, just to prove itself as next best alternative. The center is a monarch pretending as democrats, it can read pulses of Left and Right very well, compromise and showcase great maturity (in doing what, all knows).
In addition, the mess they created in ruling (not serving) for decades has also given rise to many national, global, local and family-made cozy groups like YSR, Congress, BSP, SP, BJD, TMC, BJP, Sena's, NCP, CP, NC, DMK, TDP, AIDMK, NC, JD, etc.. based on tweaked concepts and ideals. Multiple groups are best, bucks can be passed more easily, fixing of responsibility can be made look blur and confusing. If Party A loots, Party B will be eligible to show-off it's protest rallies & disgust slogans, in back-end both gangs of clover foxes will share the looted treasure with funding cronies, suck the same poor voters and tear fatty flesh from real protesters.
Historically, left wing believed that economic inequality be struggled against or in extreme cases ended by force, the right wing believed that the only ways to curb economic inequality are too restrictive to individual freedom, impractical, or harmful to efficiency, or some combination of these, or in extreme cases that economic inequality is desirable.
On the far right is fascism, which affirms the irremediable, fruitful and beneficent inequality of men. On the far left is Anarchism, which views all hierarchy of any form in which anyone has more power than anyone else as restrictive, they want to abolish capitalism as well. Nearly as far left is Communism, which seeks to abolish all social inequality through the use of limited democratic government hierarchy. Many of highly popular champions of western democracies have long found far superior and refined forms of fooling their not so-commoner citizens! The developing are learning... trouble maker or wild dream, oh? Publicity Hype of "Dhanda Party" vs "Ganda Party" - right-wingers brewing wars & genocides, agenda population control?
All is mixed-up and the only apparent goal is "lure more voters or investors by hook or crook to just press a button and forget/forgive", that's all. Once done, these mutated souls takes-over and colonize nations with pride for few years. Ironically, we are bind as a nation only due to our thousands of years of human history, it is foolish to expect these man-made political concepts to have any long term impact. But these modern categories, hypes and concepts still have some life until each entity dares to create its own country or kingdom, helping illuminate distinctions and commonalities in real socio-political landscape to some extent. How long be content with 193 countries on this huge planet? Such uniquely militarized land blocks must cross 1930000000 .... no land records, all õːm heads directly connected via "UN General Assembly's UniversalNet" - no Fakubook Portals pumped by power cronies!
