political theory Show more
This whole left/right partition of political opinion feels insufficient for anything in this century.
I think "left" and "right" are conflations of several independant ideals.
These ideals might have worked in packaged form at some point in 1850-1990, but it's time to leave "left" and "right" behind and use actual words to talk about the ideals;
Authoritarianism vs Anarchism, Centralism vs Decentralism, Economic Liberty vs Social Accountability, etc.
PS: This is not a new idea.
