Two-party systems have been around since the beginnings. The Blues and the Greens fought for dominance in the late Roman Empire. Labor vie with Tories in England. Here, there are Democrats and Republicans.
Often, there’s one difference between the two parties: One party favors forced labor. The other party at least claims to believe in individual freedom.
Before the Civil War, the Parties clearly separated on the issue of forced labor. The Democrats favored slavery. Republicans believed people should be free to work for themselves and their families. The same division occurs in every nation. One political party favors forced labor. The other party doesn’t.
Today, Democrats are in favor of raising taxes and increasing regulations. Republicans support lower taxes and fewer regulations. When we see which Party a person supports, we see whether they favor freedom or forced labor.
Political beliefs let us see if they love themselves more than their neighbors’ freedom.
Political beliefs also let us see if someone loves truth. If, after trillions are wasted on various “wars” on drugs and poverty, and the problems haven’t been ameliorated, a person’s position on continuing or ending such programs lets us see if they value truth over lies.
