And they seem to oppose just about everything.

Here’s an old poem of mine that relates:
A WAY OUT
We try to confront one another
Face to face, open and honest
But inevitably we see things differently
On this plane our views will always conflict
The one view being the other’s complete opposite
Whatever in on my left is to your right
While if it is on my right it will be to your left
Impasse! Deadlock! Despair! You think?
Now here’s the thing … Try looking up
We both see the same heavens, the same light
Look down and we see we stand on the same ground
So let’s stand side by side, give ourselves a chance
Amen to that!

Fingers crossed, eh?
And there is always opposition and always those who agree with the pronouncements of those being opposed, but then again, Hitler did exist, and the balance was not good.
“Hitler did exist, and the balance was not good.”
You can say that again. Personally I often wonder who funded him. Or his opponents come to that. For some people the books are the only things that need to be kept balanced.
