Ah, yes. The "crab trap syndrome." Everyone who sheepishly conforms to a stern political ideology and eats the pablum their political and ideological masters feed them gleefully will gladly villainize horribly those who see things rationally, insightfully, and soberly to discern that all the major political ideologies and factions, in their current form, are trying to steer a course off a cliff to catastrophe for the world, and those who can see that everyone, politically speaking, has **** on their knees, a big hand in the guilt of why the world's such a cesspool, and are all full of bad ideas, habit, and beliefs, not just one or a few of them. For many hard-brainwashed, loyal partisan/ideological sheep, this can be difficult to bear, because their usual tactics of debate and rhetoric, which are sharpened to be most effective against sheep of opposing flocks, don't work as well. Thus, dismissing us as conceited, self-righteous, detached, and "horrible" centrists, and calling it a day, makes the sheep feel better, and like they've won a victory.
