The left-right paradigm which is so defamed as nonexistent here, is in a way real, but is better defined as the reactionary-progressive paradigm.
The progressive part is the moving actor and the reactionary is, shocking, the reactor. The actor moves steadily forward at an increasing speed, like an object in freefall, while the reaction force increasingly fails to slow it down.
Now, here is the crux of this, and the part you won't here often: As the reaction force fails and the progressive force continues to pick up speed, it eventually becomes too sure of itself, too cocky, it moves too fast, and eventually it will drive the majority of people in society into not only the reaction force, but increasingly, militant and eventually very hostile reaction forces. Society, then, will as a whole, snap back against progressivism, against globalization, and sometimes against urbanization.
You may be asking why any of this is relevant or applies to common life. Particularly it is important because we are on the death spiral for democracy in large parts of the world that we were on 90 years ago. What we are seeing in the right, as it further and further increases it's intolerance for the left, is the later parts of the populist movement. of the 1890s. Groups which I believe to be part of this "new populist block" include Front National, UKIP, Golden Dawn, Ukraine's new government, Swedish Democrats, and others.
Another crux of this point, and a grave prediction: All of these groups will inevitably fail, with perhaps the exception of the Golden Dawn. They are not the final form, but a means to an end, a proof that reactionaries will not win through peace. As this becomes apparent, the narrative of the right in Europe will turn it's praise away from democracy and democratic ideals, as the need to preserve the old way through any means asserts itself. What we will have then, gentlemen, is proper nationalist parties, some terribly similar to those of the 1930s.

It's all gone wrong, hasn't it? And when you recognize that's it's all gone wrong, they hate you for it. Not just hate you, the wish death and violence upon you. Upon everything that you love and hold dear. All of that tolerance and acceptance goes out the window when you don't want your entire identity defined by your sexual fetishes. When you want to be successful and make something of yourself without excuses or handouts. By God will they hate you. And should you ever want to see the fruits of your labor, to truly OWN what you have wrought with all of that blood and sweat, they will want to see it taken from you. And that's the most sickening thing of all. For all of the noise, all the screaming and whining and yelling they do, it is all to appeal to someone stronger than they and stronger than you to do their dirty work, because their cowardice knows no bounds or limits or shame. You would pray to God for the strength to carry on, and they ridicule and spit at you for it while in the same breath praying to the State to come and smite you, not with lightning or floods or plagues, but with guns and tanks and drones.
So I ask you, my fellow users; is it wrong to hate them? I would say that it is not wrong to hate someone who would seek to silence everything you say, to discredit everything you do, and destroy everything you create. Why humor them as equals at all? The answer is simple, we must elevate them. We must be better, we must be the shining example. Where they seek to tear everything down, we must be the builders, the creators. You must be that shining light on the hill, that Ubermensch, not the biting, spitting child they wish you to be.
We must all be better, if we are to right what has gone wrong. To bring this new dark age asunder from the perverts and liars that would corrupt all that is good in the world. To arms, to arms.
