Opposite Forces in Human Nature Often Collide

It's funny how opposite forces in human nature so often find themselves juxtaposed.

Some examples:
  1. The Bush regime is promoting democracy in Russia, the middle east and around the world while at the same time destroying democracy and individual liberties here in America.

  2. The two biggest movies of 2004 are opposite - Fahrenheit 911 and The Passion of the Lunatic with Delusions of Grandeur. One is anti-Bush and the other is pro-religion anti-intellectual.

  3. At the same time the world's preeminent example of communism, the Soviet Union, was falling apart, Bill and Hillary were trying to install full-fledged socialized medicine in America.

  4. At the same time America is in a war with religious extremists, George W. Bush is trying to tear down the wall between church and state and turn America into a christian country.

  5. In the same year America was landing men on the moon through phoenomenal technological achievement, hippies and drug addicts were converging on Woodstock for a rock concert and young people all over America were generally protesting against the "establishment". The rock concert is remembered more fondly than landing on the moon.

  6. The movie and music distributors and producers in Hollywood are some of the biggest promoters of socialism, advocating "redistribution" of wealth to a plethora of their favorite causes via involuntary taxation while at the same time, they fight ruthlessly when the product of their own labor is redistributed on file-sharing networks.

(I'll add to this list as I think of examples. Please email me with pithy examples.)
