In parts of the world. Then again for other parts even right of center American politics is to the far left.

Ummmm........

Euro-centric maybe. Lots of other places in the world with governments that will gladly kill you based on ideology.

For Australia yes. Hereabouts I'm center wobbly (left on some issues, right on others but not far off the center), in most US based political discussions I've found myself in I end up grouped with the far left.

These days I stick to geekdom mostly, far cleaner.
