Bureaucratic Altruism versus Selfish Subjectivism

*

Modern secular politics polarizes into two ultimate ideologies, which (each being intolerable) typically alternate:

Bureaucratic Altruism versus Selfish Subjectivism.

Political Correctness versus Nietzschian self-will.

Scientistic nihilism versus Vitalist nihilism.

Left versus Right.

Abstract principles versus gut feelings.

Culture versus biology.

Anti-human versus anti-the-rest-of-humanity.

Abstract human rights versus my concrete self as right.

The anti-spontaneous as good versus my personal gratification as good.

Sublime suicide versus earthly appetites.

In their mainstream, socially-acceptable compromises: Mushy Liberalism versus Mushy Libertarianism.
