I am following Trump on Twitter, Why? How often is it you can follow the main character in your favourite reality soap in real time? It is my guilty pleasure… I had no interest in politics before, but this… It is the ultimate battle, the good, the bad and the ugly. This, is epic!!
So I came to know what is often referred to as “politics”. I had no bearing on it before. Extreme this and intolerable that, I had to figure it out myself. What does all this words mean, left and right, right? and conservative and liberal, yes? All this words with subtle meanings and little innuendos associated, you can Google it forever. I had to find my own way making sense of it all. It took a while but I came to visualise it like this: if you could huddle a group of people in each corner of a small room and you name the four corners of the the room “left”, “right”, “liberal”and “conservative”, each according to their political orientation. And if for the purpose of the experiment you pick people of the most extreme orientation to partake, then this is how I think I would name the groups that would end up in each of the four different corners of the room:
- “left” -> Antifa
- “right” -> ku klux klan
- “liberal” -> Hippies
- “conservative” -> Amish
Multiple choice, pick one from the above.
Which corner would it be? Pick me, pick me, I am a Hippie 🙂 Wooohaaa (I love you forever) !
