    of the Democratic Party, then some of the more centrist ones will gradually drift away from  the others as the far left becomes ever more liberal/progressive/socialist, which is the way humanity ever so gradually tends to move left to its own devices (i.e., devoid of dictatorships).  We will ultimately end up with left and right again, make no mistake, even though the right leaning impulse (me me mine what's in it for me screw you) is rather primal and backward looking, and the left leaning impulse (what's in the collective best interest of everyone) is far more evolved and stable over the very long term...

      More war? Shorter life spans doing harder work? A religious revival? If we use your categorization to put all of science and civilization in the left camp then what would the right have left to me, me mine?
