I think not. Extremism never works out. One side or the other always gets slighted. Plus, it doesn’t feel right, does it?
There seems to be a push pull effect going on in the world today, so much extremism. It’s either one way or the other, extreme right or extreme left. No leaning allowed. No tolerance allowed. No room for compromise. I’m right, you’re wrong. It’s my way or the highway. It’s like watching children fighting over a toy with each one refusing to budge. Seriously, sometimes I wish I could just slap their faces and tell them to grow up and start behaving themselves.
We have extreme liberals pushing for what they believe progresses society morally and economically while the extreme fundamentalists strive to maintain a morale code, limit government and follow the rule of law. What’s interesting about this whole scenario is that the vast majority of people fall in the middle yet you wouldn’t know that from the media coverage.
It appears as if the bulk of the populace is being ignored while the extreme fractions duke it out on the world stage and set policy for the masses. That’s not right. It feels wrong because it is wrong. The extreme end of anything is ALWAYS a smaller fraction of the whole and yet that seems to be what’s in control.
In all the controversy it’s made the masses choose a side. Are you more of this extreme than the other extreme? Wake up. Speak up. Take control. Don’t let these two opposite extremes control you any longer. It’s time for the masses to stop this nonsense and gain control again. There is power in numbers and the masses of people fall in the middle. It’s when we unite together with our commonalities that we become strong.
The desire to be at peace with one another has to be stronger than the desire to exert your own agenda, viewpoint or position on someone else. What’s your choice?
