We all failed to secure the existence of Linconia.

Worse, they temporarily mean something depending on how the mobs form on this or that issue. Only for the underlying morals or theories of each side to be discarded when it is inconvenient to them. Later the "other side" picks it up and uses it.They are easy ways to invoke the lizard-brain conflict reaction and disable critical thinking. They do not define anything with any degree of certainty. They are only used to enable wider division between people and obfuscate the real issues. Both sides are guilty of performing the actions of the 'opposite' side: IE right-wingers do left-wing things, and vice versa.
People tend to think of people "on the other side" as sub-human and do not accord them the same degree of empathy and respect they deserve. True freedom is tolerating views you find disagreeable as long as actions don't infringe upon other rights
Anyone using these terms to seriously describe political affiliations or ascribe intentions automatically are autistic. Stop listening to what people say and pay more attention to what they do: that's where you will find peoples' true intentions. Labels are only skin deep. Discuss.
Traditionalists will adopt new forms if they like them, progressives will hold up the American Constitution as if stone tablets from God if it helps them. Conservatives conserve nothing, and the Democrats listen to news populated by ex-spooks and paid for by large corporations ignorant and uninterested in the common man. Bankers flop back and forth paying who can be bought, and the bribes aren't considered bribes, but rather other things, and even if they were then they would be fine because money is speech.
Stalin didn't sew people's mouth shut, free speech is what power doesn't want you to say. Freedom is therefore doing not what is the social mores of today but is being allowed to do what The Powers The Be say are untimely or rude.
Mind you, I'm a Caesarist with Distributionist, Mutualist, Geoist, Eco-Conservationist, with a dash of love for the true anarchist societies which only exist on the frontiers of the civilization so I don't hate labels. They just cannot mean anything directly political, otherwise they increasingly become worthless.
The truth is that the Right and the Left are the last remaining moral systems within the West, Nationalism going the way of Religion soon enough. We are not going to be governed by principles anymore, only theories from powerful individuals who believe that creating crises are the only way to provide the changes necessary to 'help' society to function. Democracies were too far a swing for the man of the West, monarchies were too old and a Tragedy of the commons seemed the better fit. Now though we swung back toward giving power to structures and hierarchies of spook, soldier and policeman and the secret societies that their elders mix in, without any clarity of the openness of monarchies as to who is to blame. Is Dr. Fauci a creature of democracy and party, or a senior member of a trusted bureaucracy? We don't care for democracy when things get serious, do we know better or is it just the man of the West's instincts to do so? Neither Right nor Left though, at least. If there was a third party's third COVID presidency there would still be an Anthony S. Fauci.
