Drift to the right


Politics on the right has lost the ability to be reasonable. What’s next?

One reason for that is that politics of the “reasonable” right have been expropriated by the “reasonable” left.

The big losers in this evolution are left libertarians who no longer have a home in mainstream electoral politics. Instead, erstwhile parties of the left pander to populist religiosity, militarism, anti-feminism, xenophobia, racism, and a raft of other retrogressive impulses.

For evidence to support this contention, look at how both Rudd and Gillard pandered to these retrogressive ideologies.
