What is centrism?

In politics, centrism or the centre is a political outlook or specific position that involves acceptance or support of a balance of a degree of social equality and a degree of social hierarchy, while opposing political changes which would result in a significant shift of society away from such a paradigm.

Advocates of centrism espouse moderate political views or policies whilst rejecting extreme or radical views as impractical or idealistic. Most centrists borrow what they see as good ideas from across the political spectrum, often melding them together. Most support market-based solutions to social problems with strong governmental oversight in the public interest.
