I notice that people often tend to or feel the need to qualify ideas, measures or whatever as either left or right. I understand this is a heritage from the 20th century, but it often troubles discussions for the 21st century.
I sometimes agree to “left” ideas, am sometimes more inclined to go with “right” ideas. Most of the time I think more nuanced and primarily see the need for looking at things differently, see the system and change the underlying structures. That is neither left nor right and it does not fit in the middle either.
It is like this kind of thinking does not exist as long as a word for it does not exist…
Does this trouble anyone else as well? Could/should we come up with a word for it without creating a new “ism”.
