I agree with you in some respects.
However, you make the common mistake of confusing centrism with leftism. I am a leftist. A Progressive. I have cohorts from all sides, including the far right. Does not mean we agree on all points but on many. At least on humanitarianism and a disdain for the neoliberal corporate fascist state. We listen to each other, communicate with each other.
My writing is political, economic and above all social. Not as much creative, that’s my daughter’s realm. It is humanitarianism which drives me and always has.
