Balance? Right wing leaders routinely use violence and fear (despite the formal illegality in most cases) on behalf of a minority.
As do left-wing leaders, historically speaking (Hi USSR!). The key isn't really their politics but more the fact they're leaders. Leaders will always work primarily on behalf of a minority because they belong to that elite minority. It is human nature.
Take it easy there. We're starting to dip too far into political harangue.
Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
