two party systems

The fundamental problem with dualistic political systems is that one side always takes the position of absolute rightness, seeks absolute power, sees the world as good and evil. Because it sees itself as good this side can not by virtue of it’s position easily assimilate new knowledge; while the other side which seeks out the efficiencies arrived from testing multiple world views can never control the social discourse as it sees value in the contributions of it’s opposing party. As such all dualistic political systems tend to fall in upon themselves once the complexity of their social, economic, and environmental systems outpace the growth of the ideological complexity permitted by the former faction.
