In what ways do the left and right political wings NEED each other?

For example: the right needs the left as a common enemy so the Christian factions don't turn on each other. The left needs the right as a common enemy so the SJWs don't turn on each other.

Are there other ways in which they need each other?


@duane The right needs the left to write software. The left needs the right to run lithium mines and build cars.

@vgr you probably said that partly tongue-in-cheek, but maybe there's something about writing software that needs more specificity so I can understand... Are all/most software developers left-leaning?
