I’ve worked for people on the left and the right at various points, but for my own sanity I dumped both sides long ago. There’s simply nothing either of them can say to get me to listen. I’m free. However, although people not associated with the left/right paradigm are actually approaching the majority, they are not unified or organized. Thus, all the power rests with the center-left and the center-right — that thin slice in the middle that controls both sides while providing the illusion of difference. So, step outside. Keep building among independents. The old guys inside can’t be reformed. They need to be replaced.
