The idea expressed is 100% right. A friend of all is a friend of none and a person who values all religions is of no religion.
“Swing Like a Pendulum” has a great meaning. If a Pendulum does not swing, it is nothing but a sandbag. The other name of the pendulum is swing. In a democratic society, the pendulum of political thought swings left and right. An astute politician is neither a hardcore leftist nor a rightist. Everything is in swing, including nature and human life. Even as per Newton’s law, ‘Action and reaction are equal and opposite.
A comparison between the left and right is like a choice between an ass and a horse. “Better ride on an ass that carries you than a horse that throws you.” In politics, the main aim is the welfare of the majority either by rightist or leftist ideology.
Thanks a million, Zileji. You have very wisely and rationally expounded my thought. The last line really captures my objective.
