Liberal versus Conservative is an old debate indeed. The desire to adhere to existing principles(Conservatism) fighting against the desire to experiment with new ideas and concepts for the benefit of society(Liberalism). This tug-of-war of desire has existed long before the political systems and long before social systems. One might say it's quite natural. It would seem this conflict of society and sanction were almost born into society by a previous carrier. It does seem to go a very far way down, too.... As we look at these conflicts, we may notice a certain pattern occurring in a properly functioning system. Conservatives make rules to attempt to greater control over society to keep it functioning in an orderly manner. These rules are written adjusted for legality. Liberals then re-examine these laws and make adjustments for society. This is correct operation because the representatives are functioning in accordance with the overall desire of their voting populace; Do you look to enforce the sameness, or do you seek to change and experiment. But this battle ensues on a much deeper level. Individual cells and genetic codes are fighting the same battle, the decision to do the same thing, or the decision to do something different to attempt furthering itself. In the human body, these cells tend to adhere to the will of the brain, and you probably would too if you were continuously being shocked. And the rabbit hole goes deeper still. On the elemental level, this decision to be the same or to change is even simpler, so simple, it's essentially a ball and socket system. Much like a multiple choice answer system where each individual type of person only ever answers one set of choices. Deeper still, the flows of magnetism are even simpler, yes and no answers only, a binary system with only two modes, yes, and no. Attraction occurs when two opposing sides are facing each other, as these are essentially aligned flows of energy coming from the magnet. So if you ever tire of the debate between left or right, good or bad, correct or incorrect, just keep in mind it's something we're pretty much born into. I don't know about the rest of you, but I applaud debate which is civil. This constant fighting between left and right, when done properly in a non-competitive, logical manner, results in the greatest possible laws and regulation which effectively control problems without interfering with personal freedom. However, as we all know, a system off-balance can have unexpected results. These good and bad moments are what spice life and really end up making people proud of themselves and happy to be alive knowing they have overcome a bad moment or experienced a good moment. Each side in our system has been fighting to win, to be the better way, the dominant force, but in the end, it's this special interplay between them that occurs when in balance which makes the system work. Just thought I'd lend a little of my perspective.
