Welcome to The Central Republic — a blog that focuses on the many socio-political and economic issues of today through the lens of a centrist, and seeks to develop an understanding of centrist politics, and politics in general.
What is Centrism?
Centrism is a political position that seeks the ‘middle-road’ or ‘third way’ (Not to be confused with ‘Third-Position’) on political issues, rejects sudden and drastic shifts towards Right or Left, and often promotes compromise and balance.
It isn’t uncommon for self-ascribed centrists to be socially liberal yet economically conservative and vice versa. As a result, depending on the conversation, centrists get blanketed ‘liberals’ or ‘conservatives’, though they are really neither.
