Why I am a Centrist

It takes a crisis of the magnitude of the Ukraine war to see who’s really on the side of democracy. On the hard left, we have whataboutism; on the hard right, appeasement.

Hard left and right really are cut from the same cloth. What makes these political positions ultimately similar is that they dread a world that is unaligned with the way they think the world should be. That is, a free world.
