The right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body. The left hemisphere controls the right side of the body.
Right wingers tend to be more left-brained. We care about logic, facts, safety, security, tradition, order and hierarchy. Left wingers tend to be more right-brained. They care about love, peace, equality, creativity, acceptance, progress and free handouts.
The political polarization we are experiencing is a product of the differences we have in our psychological makeup. These psychological differences change our perception of reality. To us, the Left embodies chaos, disorder, evil, selfishness, greed and hatred. To the Left, the Right embodies those very same principles. Our system of values are just reversed because we perceive value, and thus, ethics differently. This is why two party democracies work so well. Give people the illusion of choice, the illusion of freedom, then who can they revolt against? Even if they do revolt, their numbers will never exceed 60% of the politically active population because there is always a fairly even split between left and right brained people.
This is one of the esoteric meanings of the Masonic dual-headed eagle of the 32nd and 33rd degrees. The eagle represents the body politic. With each wing/claw representing a political faction of the masses. The head or heads represents the elite political class who control the opposite wing. The number 32 or 33 implies the same thing. Three is a number that represents the Mind, Air or the intellectual realm 32 or 33 implies there are two threes or two minds or two halves of one mind controlling the body politic. The 33rd degree Masonic motif of the dual headed eagle is accompanied by the phrase "Ordo ab Chao" or "Order out of Chaos". This represents the dialectical methodology by which the masses are enslaved:
Right vs Left, Capitalism vs Communism, Christianity vs Judaism vs Islam, Men vs Women, East vs West, Red vs Blue, etc.
Their names and faces change over time but the tactics remain the same. At the heart of this dialectic is a synthesis of opposites that manipulates both sides. It is symbolized by two joined triangles, or what we know to be "The Star of David". David was actually a title that meant "King".
Freemasonry uses this symbolism, not because they are Jewish (although a small but active minority are). In Freemasory "Jew" is a rank that belongs to those who have passed through the Blue (1-3) and Red (4-32/33) Degrees. It is at this point that one becomes a "Jew" or a "David", in other words, someone who understands this divide and conquer methodology and has synthesized both "triangles" of the Red and Blue.
My point to all this is to show that there are extremely powerful forces who know how to manipulate your psyche, and they do it with media, politics and current events. They know how certain demographics will react to certain stories.
Keep this in mind the next time a church burns down, or when a (((Muslim))) blows something up, or when Trump promises you a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
What reaction is caused by the event?
Who stands to gain from such a reaction?
The event is not what is important, the masses' reaction to the event is what ultimately matters.
You don't think these people are TOTALLY and COMPLETELY in control?
They've been at this game for thousands and thousands of years. They've had plenty of practice!
So we'd better wise up to their tactics!
