Kanji structure (3)

Right-hand radicals (tsukuri or -zukuri):

A good example:

(せい)meaning govern.  The radical on right, which doesn't have a reading on its own, means strike/coerce.  Combine it with correct  (ただし)on left, and you get enforce correctness.  

A rather radical right-wing idea...

More groans...
