I guess that I’m a centrist now

My friends in party X assume that I’ll agree with them that the adherents of party Y are credulous buffoons because they follow the—presumably evil—leadership of party Y. It would be easier for me to do so if I’d not seen that party X’s membership is just as credulous. Years ago, I’d never have thought of myself as a centrist, but it seems to me that most people are far from either party’s extreme position, and mostly want to be left alone. At any rate, I remain unimpressed with either party’s fanaticism.
