Twenty Percent Of The Democratic Party Is Made Up Of The Impossible Left And Forty-Five Percent Of The Republican Party Is Made Up OF The Impossible Right

Unfortunately for Bernie Sander’s idealists, his good guy Democrats are contaminated with the impossible left. The Impossible left wouldn’t lift a finger to attack terrorist even if they were breaking though their own front door. They are the traditional peace at any price gang.

On the other extreme is the forty-five percent of impossible right Republicans, the we can threaten our way to total victory crowd, the Fox News loving, Trump lead mob of tough guys. They see leadership as primarily intimidation.

Both of these opposite extremes, though emotionally they are one and the same and thus under the right conditions can be converted one to the other, live in a fantasy world. The central fact of their fantasy world is that it is unresolvable with the universal law of probability balance, the ultimate controlling force of the real world.

Simply stated the universal law of probability balance says that over some indefinite time period creation must always be offset by destruction — stars are born and stars will die, good will be offset by evil, love offset by hate and peace offset by war.

At all times in the universe and among mankind an endless maze of creative and destructive trends are underway. It is not within our human power to end this balancing process. The best we can hope to do is not to amplify its negative offsets of hate and destruction that are so often the inadvertent product of the impossible political left and right.
