One of the most important of these differences is their attitudes toward law. Generally speaking, the Left and the secularists venerate, if not worship, law. They put their faith in law--both national and international. Law is supreme good. for most on the Left, "Is it legal"? is usually the question that determines whether an action is right or wrong. Take the war in Iraq. the cheif leftist argument against the war--before it began, not later when no WMD's were found--was that without U.N. sanction, attacking Iraq violated international law. International law thus provides a clear example of the left-right divide. to the left an international action is right if Nations such as China, Russia, France and Syria vote for it, and wrong of they vote against it. To the right and to the religious, and action is good (or bad) irrespective of the votes of the world's nations. They judge it by a code of morality higher than internation law. Thoughts? Do you find this to be accurate to where you stand philisophically, or are you somewhere in the middle?
