Extremism - right and left
I read, occasionally, someone stating that the right and the left have their extremists. To me, it's easy to see who is a right-wing extremist. I just compare what the Republican Party was 30 years ago to what it is now and it's easy to see that it has been taken over by extremists on the right.
Now, I can't say that for the left. What is left-wing extremism? How has it manifested itself in laws passed or even laws people are attempting to pass? I think there is very little left-wing extremism, especially conpared to the late 60's. The Democrats have moved, IMO, to the center and what was main-stream Democratic ideals 30 to 40 years ago is now seen as extreme?
So please enlighten me if you think I am wrong.
