Those who consider left and right or make them to be opposite will always meet disappointment along their way. To me they are unavoidable alternatives, leverages, complements and supplements to one another. A rightist may resort to leftist due to disability/incapacity or by choice, circumstances or compulsion.

By your article, I think Benyamin Natanyahu and those who preceded him are line with Master Confucious sayings:-


"It is Goodness that gives to a neighborhood its beauty. One who is FREE TO CHOOSE, yet does not prefer to dwell among the Good – how can he be accorded the name wise?

Without Goodness a man:-

  • Cannot for long endure adversity
  • Cannot for long enjoy prosperity"
