التطرف كل الحقـيقـة والاعتدال نصف الباطل

Extremism is the whole truth; neutralism is half the shit.

I didn't get it. Elaborate please. I might be convinced?

I hate to admit this, I agree with the Fool.

ok :-)
For instance, consider a situation where one must take a stand between two extreme sides of an issue. Suppose one side is right and the other is wrong. If s/he takes the middle ground between her/his conviction and the other side, in an attempt to be neutral, then this compromise position is made up of at least half the wrong of the other side, and so on. Look at how the news of atrocities are buried and how the victim and murderer are given equal standing, all in the name of neutrality. And what about the rulers who love being classified as moderates etc etc...

Except that you can return the same logic against the original argument: extremism is the ful shit. So why not chose for half of it instead? Aren't we better off with such a deal?

alphast,
:)
true, but only if one takes an extreme position with "shit", in that case, one is advised to move to the other extreme as fast as possible...
