Often we see some people claim they know that some organization is extreme right while others are extreme left or centre. What does that mean? According to the great guru wiki:
Generally, the left-wing is characterized by an emphasis on "ideas such as freedom, equality, fraternity, rights, progress, reform and internationalism" while the right-wing is characterized by an emphasis on "notions such as authority, hierarchy, order, duty, tradition, reaction and nationalism".
The question I have is who decided that the above definition resides in any authority apart from public perception and news media rhetoric?
