If you're on the left, name at least one thing about the right you agree with the left typically disagrees with.

If you're on the right, name at least one thing about the left you agree with the right typically disagrees with.

Currently.. nothing.

The daily fake news is even starting to annoy those on the Left, because now everyone is at home to witness the aggression with which the Left attack the Opposition.

Or, if you are, say, a Kantian or an Ayn Rand Objectvist, note something that both those on the left and those on the right are obligated to do if they wish to be thought of as a rational [and thus virtuous] human being.

But, in the spirit of the thread, my own political prejudices [rooted in dasein] revolve around the left/liberal perspective.

But "I" still support capital punishment and the right to own and operate a gun.

If only from a considerably more "fractured and fragmented" point of view.

What did you use to like about the left?
When did the left take a, left turn in your estimation, what do you particularly dislike about them these days?
Why do you think the left are so hostile to Great Britain, their host nations, any kind of nationalism or patriotism in general?

Why do you still support capital punishment and gun rights?
Why do you think the left and right can't see eye to eye on this issue?

Social Welfare [housing, health-care] ..I still do.

The [old] education system ..I’m not sure what the current system is even like.

When I left the education system in the early-90s and came to the self-realisation that the world was not just and true, as it is when buffered by the security of the ‘system’.

The Left want society to offer themselves up as pawns, to fight the dark/evil Righties, because of historical-past.. but that ain’t my fight, to fight.

..historical-past ..in them wanting to right past wrongs, but why keep flogging dead horses.

The left gives you the freedom to say no.

The right is subsumed by the left.
The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

Welcome to thinking.
