HARDCOVER: Neither Left Nor Right
Charles Konia, M.D.
Ever since humans have had to take responsibility for governing themselves, they have shown that they have been unable to do so successfully. Every good social idea and rational social endeavor has, sooner or later, backfired and made conditions worse than they originally were. Think of the Communist revolutions of the 20th century, the revolution in Iran, Wilsonʼs dream of a League of Nations, or Rooseveltʼs idea of the United Nations.
Peopleʼs attempts to govern themselves naturally lead to looking for political solutions. However, it soon becomes apparent that politics bogs down into a battle between two divergent outlooks, the political views of the Left and Right. Yet no one has ever asked what is the origin of peopleʼs different views of the same social situation, and why does every social issue end up in a conflict between the opposing forces of the Left and the Right.
Neither Left Nor Right shows that the problem has to do with the way people look for solutions. They seek outside of themselves, never looking inward. This book shows that the source of humanityʼs social problems in America originates not primarily from the external political forces impinging on people, but from forces within their own biological structure. This is the reason that political solutions always have, and always will, fail.
For genuine social improvement to occur, there must be fundamental biological changes in peopleʼs structure.
“Neither Left Nor Right” hits the ball out of the ballpark. Dr. Charles Konia addresses the causes of our political thinking over the course of our life. He captures the essence of the failures that all the great social experiments over time have wreaked on society. Without a doubt, Dr. Konia’s analysis can explain what we are witnessing in our own current political environment. This is a must read for anyone who is questions how our nation has gotten into its current condition and seeks a way to save it. Dr. Konia is to be commended for this outstanding work of research and explaining it in a way that anyone can understand. I hope everyone who cares about their country and worries about its future will read this book and grasp its message."

“Dr. Charles Konia gets it. Our nation is seeing a decay in its values and institutions. This doesn’t happen overnight and doesn’t necessarily happen because of evil intentions but in this case good intentions that have gone awry. Remember that old adage, ‘no good deed goes unpunished’? Well Dr. Konia explains why every great social experiment in history has made conditions worse. This is a book that the creators of Obamacare should have read before they went forward with that monstrosity and one they should read now and all Americans worried about the fate of this nation should read before it is too late.”
– Dennis Miller
“I was honored to recommend Dr. Konia’s first book, “The Emotional Plague” and am highly honored to recommend his sequel, “Neither Left Nor Right”. This book is masterful and a must read for anyone who loves our nation and is concerned with its current direction. Dr. Konia has carefully and skillfully researched this subject to explain how social experiments designed since the beginning of time with all of the best intentions have failed and made the problems worse. We are witnessing the same today in our nation. Our country has become a giant laboratory for social engineering and as a result we are losing our national identity and national fabric. “Neither Left Nor Right” shows how this happens and is a clarion call for all patriotic Americans to take action before this nation follows the path of ancient Greece and Rome. I have no doubt that years from now, this book will be mandatory reading in political science classes across the nation in explaining the decline in America and how some sought to avert disaster.”
