This article is about a fictional ideology and has no foundation in real life political movements.
This article is about the mascot of the subreddit and the strawman of Centrism. For other uses, see Centrism.
Dead Centrism is a ball inhabiting the exact center of the political compass and is the mascot of Polcompball. They believe the best solution to all problems is an exact compromise between two sides.
This leads them to advocate things that are considered very extreme and wacky for a centrist, like gassing half the Jews as a compromise between gassing no Jews and gassing all of them.
They are also the only Polcompball who can accurately and fairly pinpoint any other polcompball on a political compass, as they have no bias like the others.
The Strawman is Born
Personality and Behaviour
Dead Centrism has only half a personality, and their (half) personality is just indifference. Don't talk to them or you'll be (half) bored to death.
How to Draw
The flag of Dead Centrism is based on the political compass.
- Draw a ball,
- Split the ball into four separate quadrants with black lines,
- Fill in the quadrants clockwise starting at the top left in the following order: pale red, pale blue, pale yellow and pale green,
- Draw a dark red circle in the middle of the four quadrants,
- Add the eyes and you're done!
|Pale Red||#FABCBC||250, 188, 188|
|Pale Blue||#96D4FA||150, 212, 250|
|Pale Green||#C8FABC||200, 250, 188|
|Pale Yellow||#FAFAAF||250, 250, 175|
|Dark Red||#FA1925||250, 25, 37|
- All the other centrists - I like them, but they lean more towards a side of the political compass than I'd like.
- Anti-Radicalism - Understands that the extremes must be stopped, but doesn't understand everyone else must be stopped too.
- Liquid Democracy - Direct and Representative Democracy simultaneously? This is the compromise of the century.
- Capitalist Communism, Progressive Conservatism, Anarcho-Totalitarianism & Archeofuturism - Half and half. That's good.
- Almost everyone else - Just maintain balance people, and try to move towards the center.
- Anti-Centrism - All the worst extremes in one.
- Anti-Realism - Even worse extremes in one.
