    ?Satire and Political Correctness

    Since no one has responded, I’ll have a go, as I too consider myself centrist.

    For me the term has the following meaning:

    1) Political decisions/policies should be compromises between viewpoints, not winner-takes all imposistions of the majority view.

    2) Aside from their political acceptability, extreme solutions (neo-liberalism, communism) are almost always disastrous: life is more complex than theory. Imperfect solutions usually work best in practice.

    So yes, the centrist position will change over time, as have those of the the majority of the left & right.
