The Left holds the levers of elite opinion. On the one hand, this makes the absurdities and monstrosities of the Left particularly easy to see, but on the other hand it makes the monstrosities that he Right is committed to harder to see. The Right thus becomes idealized, and the more so to those who are marginalized by the Left. After putting the Left in charge, the absurdity of their claims to universal equality and centralized control becomes manifest; but it also covers over the monstrosities and absurdities that are implicit in the Right’s belief in human inequality, or in its thinking that its political belief could be realized in a polity without centralization.
This is unavoidable since both Left and Right are attempts to create political unity among a number of persons that is far too large to have any political unity. Being unable to deal with persons as they are, the Left will pretend they are all homogeneous and the Right will pretend that the inequalities between them are evident in some phenotype. Since the realization of their infinitely-diffused ideologies is a monster, the Left will try to pretend that the monster is really just the people, and the Right will pretend that the monster could live without a head. Both pretend to control something that can’t be controlled because it can’t be understood, and it can’t be understood because it can’t exist. There are Leviathans, but they are not polities. They allow for politics but can only be considered politics by analogy.
I can’t imagine living outside the Leviathan, and I’d be open to an argument that, on net, it’s increased human happiness. Maybe the Left-Right division is a way of quarantining opposite absurdities, and so allows for neither one to become too extreme.
