There are many sides fighting to influence our world view
We need to listen to all of them (free speech)
Including what the mainstream media refuses to cover
The rest of us are entitled to our perspectives:
Shia Muslims, men’s rights, socialists, etc.
Amphiist is a Greek word meaning looking at both sides

The media often deals negatively with subjects because bad news sells more copies, apparently. This is what the Amphiist is trying to change. The Amphiist defends a lot of people who would otherwise not be defended. It is hard to defend some people, but that is probably when it is most necessary. The media thrives on conflict. It covers wars positively, abortion, anything that depopulates and divides. The Amphiist takes the middle ground as often as possible, although there are some lines we won’t cross. Take abortion, for example. Abortion on demand is evil. Making abortion illegal is evil. Abortion is like murder. There are times when it’s appropriate to act in self defence. If a mother’s life is at stake, abortion is a viable option. (Turn over page for other perspective)
The Other Side
We hear a lot about the evil of Saudi Arabia, Israel and America. We also need to hear about the good, amphiist perspective.
If a Saudi woman is getting her education in the West, and needs to travel to school, she does not go alone. In order to protect her, a male relative will accompany her to keep her safe, even at his own inconvenience. Chivalry is not dead. And the Saudi royal family has implemented for years, starting with King Abdullah and continuing on a more limited basis now, scholarships so that Saudis can visit the West and get a fine education, taking their management skills back to Saudi to develop it. The best thing about Saudis is their loyalty to family. Their lives revolve around putting their families.The best thing about Israel is it simply cannot be beaten. Jews have been kicked out of 109 countries, but they still fight, and never give up. Incidentally, the reason for so much Jewish influence in media is because they were often kicked out of non-Jewish positions of power.
The best thing about America is its democracy. It’s really a constitutional republic, but its system of checks and balances, and one person, one vote, should be copied everywhere.
