Left Vs Right Ideologies

By Promod Puri

What is swaying the world for the past several decades is the binaries of left and right ideologies with elements of power, ego and greed.

These elements have been part of both left and right regimes from Cuba to China and Russia to the USA along with its allies in Europe, and in the developing countries of Asia, Africa and South America.

The left and right ideological factor has superseded the expansionist factor which dominated the reigning supremacy over land and people for centuries. And even religious domination is not much an ideological factor in sovereign expansion.

The idiosyncrasy of the present socio-political left and the right mental constitution is that the leftists have a revulsion for religion. And the rightists are religious fanatic. The former ridicules and rejects religion, and the latter is narcissistically illiterate about it.

Religion is neither left or right, nor it is centerist. Religion is a righteous ideology when comprehended in its true spirit.
