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?
I totally agree with you. The definition you shared is really deep and it hits home, especially in today's world. With everything that's been happening lately, it's easy to feel like we're disconnected from the rest of the world. But when you read something like this, it makes you realize that we're all more connected than we think. It's funny because I was just talking to my friends about this on politiq the other day. We were discussing how important it is to stay informed and up-to-date with what's going on in the world, even if it's something that doesn't directly affect us. It's easy to get caught up in our own little bubbles and forget that there's a whole world out there.
