Those of us who can rise above the political trench warfare of left and right have certain (superior, naturally) characteristics:

Modesty prevents.

Oh alright then. Northern English along with ownership of one or more Rohloffs.

    Idealogues at the extreme fringes are too wrapped up in their doctrinaire beliefs to consider that views even only mildly different to their own have any validity.

    Those of us in the middle can see all sides of the arguments, consider them on their merits and reach an informed conclusion that we were right all along... [:D]

    There's many dimensions:

    conservative-progressive

    hierarchcy-equality

    individualist-collectivist

    emotional-rational

    ecocentric-anthropocentric

    spiritual-materialist

    and so on...


    The last three are increasing in relevence, whilst the first three characterise traditional left-right divisions more easily...
