The terms "right" and "left" when used in a political context are meaningless

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.
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.

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.

It depends on how you define "left" and "right," a topic which I believe is an interesting conversation in and of itself. If you're going off the "political compass" or the modern democrat/republican dichotomy, which frames left vs right as an inherently economic disagreement within a democratic culture, the distinction is going to be meaningless. However, if you reframe your definitions outside of our modern political bubble, the terms "left" and "right" can take on actual political meaning and even convey political or historical insight.

At first I agree with this and it seems like a useful for shorthand for condensing a lot of issues into a descriptor. However looking back at its origin it was literally just describing seating arrangements inside the Assembly of the French Republic immediately after the Revolution, that only existed for about a decade before Napoleon sorted shit out. It's something that has way outgrow its meaning. It really just dumbs things down to a binary system and encourages a very simplistic view of politics among people that don't care about politics. It lets people say "Oh that commentator is X wing, you can't trust him/her" and leave it at that.
One could say people will just divide into tribalistic team mentalities anyway, but can't we at least have more than 2 teams?

As opposed to the social and political beliefs from the right wing? ever heard of institutions such as the church? before it got completely defanged by left wing politicial thought, of course.
Their right to be troons, single mothers, and pedophiles? Or eat themselves into being a burden to society? Or stab and shoot the white man? Most of the restrictions of the right wing were just common sense.
wow, you don't even know what left and right mean, do you? You probably still think that voting and democracy are good things lmao.
Democracy is bad because of left wingers, but so is mob rule and any activism. The larger the group one is trying to appeal towards, the more likely you end up with far left ideals dismantling anything positive you sought to do. That's why governments and corporations love Greta, AOC, and so on as they're on the side of the corporations.

''Infringing on rights is bad and only left wingers form their basis around it unless its infringing on the rights of people I dont like then its completely reasonable and coincides perfectly with my right wing beliefs''

yeah ok.

Right versus left only had meaning when it was monarchy enjoyers vs democracy faggots (or more specifically "right wing" referred to anyone who thought that the french revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race)

Nowadays left wing vs right wing doesn't matter, and politics at large doesn't matter too since we have a world government controlling the population directly through tech giants, financial institutions and organizations like WHO. The orange man bad / orange man good crap is just an elaborate netflix tv show for people who have too much free time

Wrong. The terms have objective meaning, they have just become slang for "Different Views Than Me".

Words and meanings evolve. It's the reason why "populist movements" still exist 2000 years after the populares, why socialism is considered "in between" capitalism and communism, and why we call our constitutional republican system a "democracy." While the terms left and right aren't used to describe our position on the French monarchy anymore, they're an easy and clear way to refer to two opposing poles on a political spectrum.
It really just dumbs things down to a binary system and encourages a very simplistic view of politics among people that don't care about politics. It lets people say "Oh that commentator is X wing, you can't trust him/her" and leave it at that.
In-group bias like that is inevitable whether you have 2 or 200 "sides."
Also, left and right is a spectrum, not a binary. The point is to classify different ideologies on their position between two poles relative to one another. While you can say "ideologies A B and C are left and X Y and Z are right," I think it's much more useful to be able to say say "A is more left than C, which is more left than X".
One could say people will just divide into tribalistic team mentalities anyway, but can't we at least have more than 2 teams?
If you're asking why we don't have more than 2 sides in the west, any "democratic" system will eventually devolve into 2 teams. As for the political spectrum itself, the 2 poles are useful for visualizing historical phenomena (such as Conquest's second rule), or organizing ideologies between two extremes (such as autocracy vs anarchy). There are attempts to classify ideologies along more than 2 poles, such as the political triangle and the political compass, though I feel these attempts often have flaws and begin to stray from a useful model into simple categorization.

Sometimes lefts want us work together, sometimes lefts want banker paper coin. Many many papers. This mean left talking can mean different things cause bad bad Clinton man make secret deal with Wall Street. Many Lefts like Wall Street now, many lefts for new left big-word called neo-liberalism. Old left now outside New left. Very sad. Right-wing sometimes do like this too.

Trad people as example sometimes like the new things even though Trad means they like old things, Progressive sometimes like old Constitution words even though progress means they like new things, Conservatives never ever conserve nothing much cause big dummies and Liberals listen many nights to CIA spymen on TV light made by big big groups that no like me and you. Paper money tribe try to bribe all kinds of people, cause America mostly dumb and no thinks bribes bad.

Free Speech actually about nasty words, nobody ever hate good words so free words about bad words. All free stuff maybe about same thing, about doing what you want rather than what Left and Right want.

I no hate labels, sometimes likes big big words that make many heads hurt. Labels ok still, unless Left and Right use label then it become bad over time.

Big truth is that Left and Right are like hand-holds when drowning cause Sky God have no power no more. Banding together to make strong tribe soon go bye too. Left and Right are here today cause morals have no power no more, only big men and big promises which need COVID and 9/11 to make new left ideas. Maybe new Right ideas too? Big chiefs before World War One maybe smart idea and we instead made bad idea of democracy. Maybe CIA on TV, like MSNBC, more like Big chief than democracy? Maybe America tired and wants big chiefs to make sunshine meadow wonderland instead of democracy now? Hard to say, but I did not vote for Anthony S. Fauci, did you? Maybe big big sign of Left and Right leaving is America have less and less democracy since no one wanted Fauci but Fauci here anyway.

TL;DR Left and Right are dumb ideas that divide us into two groups so that we fight while moneyed groups bribe either side into doing whatever rich people want.

That's a false equivalency because left wing beliefs make life worse and prescribe rights and defenses to places they don't belong. Pedophiles aren't people, illegal immigrants aren't citizens and shouldn't have the right to come in mass, you don't have the right to kill babies, niggers and sand niggers should not rape, rob, and kill with no consequences. Also sending money to China is not a good climate strategy, and we shouldn't cut down all the forests to make room for migrants and Wal-Marts.

Left wing ideals are popular among minorities and women, so people with an IQ of 80 and people who need a cocktail of antidepressants to not blow their brains out. They should not shape society.

Left wing ideals gain power the same way as a child with low-functioning autism at another kid's birthday party does, as we've seen with Occupy Wallstreet and the Nigger riots of the past few years. If you chimp out enough people will tolerate it to not hurt the feelings of others. All you need is one loud left winger to ruin any movement as well.

There's no such thing as common sense. What's normal and necessary for someone will be abnormal and unnecessary for someone else.
As for the social groups you list above, I'd say it IS their right to be any of those things, with the obvious exception of shooting and stabbing white people. Whites endure far more racism than is let on in society (especially the media which turns a complete blind eye to it) but that's a whole 'nother topic. If someone wants to ruin their body or mind with corruption than it's their right to do so - that's the right of the individual and it trumps the right to a so-called "healthy" society.

Why would I want my taxes to go up to create more ghettos, more traffic, and appease the mentally ill? None of those are moral rights.

Why should I have to pay more in taxes to subsidize the fat fucks who have strokes and heart attacks? It's a human right to not have to face any consequences for eating yourself to death?

Both libertarians and social conservatives are referred to as right wing. That's just fucking retarded.
