I hear you. Not sure based on your response, your fully understanding what I'm saying. And for the record, I'm stuck in the middle without choice Because both sides' extremities exist only as a result of the choice to wear blinders, IMO. It depends on the day or the issue being discussed whether I'm center right or center left, but when I'm center left, I have no problem calling out the fringe extremes because I see it as my duty in order to contribute to my teams victory. (EDIT)-(That's not true. Not my teams victory. More the drain on the game between both sides. I'm critical of the far left like I'm a cop chasing a streaker off the baseball field).
I simply don't bother engaging with far right, unless they'd like to fight, in which case I'm always happy to assist in their 'education'.
I agree with you that the far right is a more tangible threat. They are easy to spot, transparent in their agenda, and more nihilistic. They are a much easier target. The far left are fairly easy to spot, but a mirror opposite in the transparency of their agenda, and while not nihilistic, they are equally as noncontributing out of a secret self absorption.
