    I'm a socialist and I hate everyone.

    Most individualistic socialist there is.

    As for the "hard" choices between liberal and conservative, it's a false dichotomy if anybody think that's all there is to the human race.

    In Europe they will tell us that they define those terms differently, but that's because they are farther to the Left.

    There has been a Centrist movement in the US since 2010. It is better known as Rational Centrism because of the call for thoughtfulness versus knee-jerk reactionaryism.



    (P.s.) I disagree that Obama was/is a Rational Centrist.

    Europe, if you're meaning Continental Europe or the EU, I'm not sure, anyway, I identify as being part of Europe anyway, whether its defined that way or not, may not have been cursed by the liberal/conservative culture wars in the same was the US or english speaking world.

    Its not because they are further to the left, its that the centre ground is not on the far right margins as it is in the US.

    I'm just talking about Europeans, who are ubiquitous on Facebook and object to the US version of Left/Right politics because those terms mean something different there. Probably a Leftist is a communist and a Rightist is a fascist.

    I got the feeling you'd not made the real acquaintance of anyone and were talking about an online interaction.

    Tony Blair, like Clinton, moved the centre ground to the right, formerly occupied by Thatcher-Reagan's parties, the conservatives responded to the "new consensus" by moving even further to the right and its not been able to arrest that militant tendency or correct course since then.

    They will because conservatism has a different point oft reference. Different historical roots.

    Must admit to disliking people who support Trump and all his corrupt swamp monsters.
