Taibbi: Goodbye, and Good Riddance, to Centrism - Rolling Stone
In December, Barack Obama said he wasn't worried about the "Corbynization" of American politics because "the Democratic Party has stayed pretty grounded in fact and reality." [...] For decades pundits and pols have been telling progressive voters they don't have the juice to make real demands, and must make alliances with more "moderate" and presumably more numerous "centrists" in order to avoid becoming the subjects of right-wing monsters like Reagan/Bush/Bush/Trump.

Voters for decades were conned into thinking they were noisome minorities whose best path to influence is to make peace with the mightier "center," which inevitably turns out to support military interventionism, fewer taxes for the rich, corporate deregulation and a ban on unrealistic "giveaway" proposals like free higher education. Those are the realistic, moderate, popular ideas, we're told. [...] Here and abroad, voters in other words stopped deferring to politicians and media figures and began making their own decisions about what is and is not realistic.

Martin Schulz: Mehrheit hält den SPD-Kanzlerkandidaten für unglaubwürdig - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Was!? Man glaubt Politikern ihre Wahlversprechen vom Herzen und mit Emotionen nicht? // Die Mehrheit nimmt Schulz auch nicht seine Ankündigung ab, sich besonders für "hart arbeitende Menschen" einzusetzen. 57 Prozent halten das für "unglaubwürdig", 36 Prozent für "glaubwürdig". //&! Labour’s collapse among working-class voters is catastrophic – according to YouGov, only 16% would vote Labour now. That’s troubling enough for “the party of working people”, but it is made doubly damaging because, contrary to expectations, Ukip is not proving the main beneficiary. - https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/feb/25/wings-labour-blame-electoral-collapse &! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/labour-third-most-popular-party-working-class-voters-behind-tories-ukip-latest-yougov-poll-stoke-by-a7578641.html &! https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/24/opinion/britains-absent-opposition.html?_r=0 &! http://gulfnews.com/news/europe/uk/brexit-has-changed-britain-s-political-landscape-1.1984533 &! https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/feb/12/brexit-labour-identity-crisis-solution-return-to-roots
