Neither to the right nor to the left....

Here is a remarkable quote from Jesuit Theologian Bernard Lonergan, quoted by Mary Ann Glendon of Harvard Law School.... on her website.

"There is bound to be formed a solid right that is determined to live in a world that no longer exists. There is bound to be formed a scattered left, captivated by now this and now that new possibility.

But what will endure is a perhaps not numerous center, big enough to be at home in both the old and the new, painstaking enough to work out one by one the transitions to be made, strong enough to refuse half measures and insist on complete solutions even though it has to wait."

I agree with that a little over 100%!
