In your world, Rob, the intersection of left/right and right/wrong always seem to result in only one combination: left=wrong and right=right?
The intersection always results in disaster for one faction or the other; even coalitions fail in the end because they represent neither fish nor foul.
However, in this instance, there is no intersection because it's a clear-cut case of treachery towards the mother country or, if you prefer, the fatherland.
The reference to the left is forced upon me in this case - I assume you to alluded to my previous post? - because they are inevitably the ones marching down the avenue flying the red flag, regardless of the reason for the march. You could call a demonstration for more severe or even more liberal dog licences, and the faithful reds would come out with the banners. It's what they do. It's their raison d'Ítre. All of the post-industrial lands have them in abundance. That's generally why they became post-industrial lands; a measure of red success, if you will.
