Against Binary Thought

Yes or No.
Red or Blue.
Right or Left.
Republican or Democrat.
Column A or Column B.
There are only two choices. Enter this corridor or that one. Later you realize they both go in the same direction, toward a dead end.
What are the Vegas odds that either side is 100% right?
A dispassionate gambler would figure that one side is one-third right, and the other is one-third right-- leaving a third of the pie for new ideas which have never been thought of or tried.
My goal is for the ULA to live in that new third, and leave stale polarized binary bipolar blue smoke and mirrors behind.
