Globalism Is Not Centrist

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Former PM Tony Blair’s approach to politics used the concept of “triangulation” – appearing to be not-Left, not-Right but a just-perfect Goldilocks moderate compromise.

Writing in The Conservative Woman, Dr Campbell Campbell-Jack says “In the protests throughout France we see symptoms which have appeared elsewhere in Europe of the crumbling of the globalist centre.”

The word “centre” is (unintentionally, in this case) misleading. Between those who govern and those who are governed, there is no left and right. Instead it is up and down: those up there, us down here.

A triangle is two-dimensional. Here is the centre:

But human nature being what it is, power and money have a tendency, not to “centralise” but to concentrate – at the top:

In the various modern versions of what is called democracy, the rationale for concentrating so much power in the apex is that somehow our interests are represented by it. Our problem is that we are daily less and less convinced of the truth of this argument.

Now it’s becoming their problem, too.
