Gal-durn it! Both of my 10-D sized feet are planted far left of center.
But the strong headwinds of rationality buffet my body politic with gale-force winds sufficient to tip me about 45-degrees toward the right.
I suspect the whole “left-right” spectrum of political philosophy is more of a logarithmic than a linear scale, the further away you get from center, the more quickly you get into a rationally inscruitable terra incognita - and thence there be monsters.
There are crazy ill-informed zealots toward either end of the political spectrum, and the post-modernists are clearly affected by a utopianism and anti-rational philosophy of vacuuous banality and paralytic anarchy. On the other end, the ultra-conservatives would have us live in a paternalistic dystopia whering the less fortunate are left to writhe and wither.
Seriously, I am perplexed how any rational proponent of the scientific method could be terribly far from the center in any case.
