I'm afraid for many its just a phrase "false left versus right", because minutes latter its right wing politics and the 'evils' of socialism.

I like the "right and wrong" btw

Grand Illusion.

Styx – The Grand Illusion Lyrics

Welcome to the Grand illusion
Come on in and see what's happening
Pay the price, get your tickets for the show
The stage is set, the band starts playing
Suddenly your heart is pounding
Wishing secretly you were a star.

But don't be fooled by the radio
The TV or the magazines
They show you photographs of how your life should be
But they're just someone else's fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that it's a Grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same.
We're all the same

So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because your neighbors got it made
Just remember that it's a Grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same.
We're all the same

America spells competition, join us in our blind ambition
Get yourself a brand new motor car
Someday soon we'll stop to ponder what on Earth's this spell we're under
We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are

Songwriters: DE YOUNG, DENNIS
"Logic is an enemy and truth is a menace." ~ Rod Serling
"Cops today are nothing but an armed tax collector" ~ Frank Serpico
"To be normal, to drink Coca-Cola and eat Kentucky Fried Chicken is to be in a conspiracy against yourself."
"People that don't want to make waves sit in stagnant waters."

I remember a Ron Paul video that said basically what is now called "right" is really left... But how about throwing all that out the window...?

Another, better paradigm is up-down...

I've found that the more proudly someone proclaims to be free from the "false left-right paradigm," the more likely he or she is to be intellectually enslaved to the equally false Austrian-Keynesian paradigm when it comes to the specific issue of monetary policy, and to the Rothbardian-Marxist paradigm when it comes to the more general issue of political economy.

It is of course False . . . But the AXIS not discussed is

"Pragmatic versus Utopian"

In which case, Austrian / Libertarianism is in the same corner as Marxism, and other wacky Utopian rubbish. If you look at the founding fathers, they where pragmatists and adverse to Utopian junk.

Because in General Discussion, it would have been buried quite quickly...
