TO balance or Not to Balance

How do you know that the pendulum has swung too far ..eg take the example of dada or the reservation thing....Surely strike by doctors is a wrong thing..but a logic is ..the extreme step is there to counter th extreme foolishness of the govt...but suppose the govt gives up..ok sorry to jump to another example..but this one is the best..take the nepal cvhaos example....people protested..and the politicians and the Maoists..came together (Very anti each other in normal times)...now all the steps were extremes...and logically rightly so..cos the king really was very inept....but the $64k question is ...how much is enough...

suppose the politicians have a better strategy for future (cud be vice versa)...when should the politicians part their ways with the Maoists...tht is the danger is that in the wake of euphoric bonhomie..maybe the politicians give in too much to the maoists..(which by previous assumption is harmful)....to come back to the dada example...mayb ppl r takin extreme positions to counter each other arguments while they may internally recognise that mebbe chappell is not the anti christ or the best ting ever...

the contention is ofcourse that while applyin counterforce..we may fail to recognise when to stop..otherwise..wither we are on the right or left side of the equillibrium and more seriously...ne victory by taking extreme positions is in itself an harbionger of further disbalance..

so the best way as per methinking is that in passive sese always be centrist(assumin optimal)...others will reach there or in active sense..u may start with extreme positions but be ready to reevaluate ot thinking and options as per changed circumstances
