Does anybody have some examples of pincer movements coming from the Left and Right crushing us on the same issue, in the same or similar way?

An example is Monsanto and their seeds. Through Privatization, or private corporate monopoly they accomplish what a Communist dictator would want - no private property.

Banking might be another example, in that the public supply of money is under a private corporate monopoly.

Laker Airlines
Sir Freddy Laker - Laker pioneered low cost trans-Atlantic travel. He primarily sold American holidays to British travelers. He started out at a time when the pound was strong and the dollar weak. Business was good and he contracted to buy American aircraft at a price set in dollars. Major airlines like British Airways, Britannia and Monarch, tried to undercut Laker by running their services at a loss. Addes to that the problems for the dollar being strengthened not only was his pound revenue worth less in terms of dollars so more pounds had to be devoted to paying for the new planes but the weaker pound resulted in less travel. Laker had fewer pounds but a bigger bill for the planes. The result was bankruptcy.

What I meant Yeo was that many people identify the Left or the Right as being behind all ills. However it seems that it really is Big vs. Little in the world. Big business or Big government vs. the people.

Monsanto works against the people but it's not surprising to find that they work hand in glove with gov't officials.

Pick an issue, any issue where there is an identifiable Left or Right as oppressor and then see if there also is it's opposite number working for the same effect.
