The idea that centrist thinking is the mark of an intelligent mind is completely absurd. The idea that Pro-x and Anti-x are unreasonable. So the logical position is the moderate one is not only cowardly but it’s also fallacious . Taking the moderate position allows you to step off to the side and act like both sides are uncivilized nitwits. Moderate politics allows the meek mind the chance to feel superior to the two radicals. The argument to me that the further you go from the center of politics. The more uninformed people will be found . Just seems completely wrong to me . It seems to me that the perfect place for a uninformed person would be the center . You can hide under the mask of being more enlightened than the two groups brave enough to take a hardline stance.
