@mdszy I'm a centrist
I'm actually pretty right wing but don't wanna alienate my cool left wing friends
@RandomDamage uh, these names mean nothing to me.
Can you give me some examples of policies or opinions the right held at the time that would be considered left wing by today's standards?
Like, what did they think about tradition? about family? church? immigration? climate?
@wolf480pl @RandomDamage I think this is more a commentary onhow US politics has warped over the years - a 1975 US conservative would be considered far left in the US today... But what the US considers far left, would still be conservative in most of the world.
Hell, I saw a Reddit post with someone (in North Carolina, IIRC) being called a socialist for wanting a public library in their town
in Poland, the right-wing ruling party gave people "500+", where the government gives you 500 PLN a month for every children you have.
The same party has plenty of right-wing opinions like being anti-abortion, anti-immigration, pro-church, etc.
Meanwhile the centrist parties were like "wtf there's no money for that, you're getting us all in debt".
Populism doesn't care about left vs right wing.
