If you object to unsustainable immigration, you’re a right wing, racist xenophobe.
If you object to rent seeking, you’re a lefty terrorist.
The terms Left and Right, outside of academia, are now either meaningless badges or lazy slander. They are now so loaded with bitter connotations that they cover up the matter at hand rather than reveal anything new about it. Our discourse on matters political economic would improve greatly if these blinkers were removed from our eyes.

Yes, maybe there’s a radical centrist approach, Georgism, Andy?
