Very neat substack and I'll be sure to reply to some of the very interesting topics you wrote about soon.
Nevertheless, please be careful with terms. Much as something might sound nice to you, you should first make sure that it *affords* the same meaning to your audience.
For example, whenever I hear "center" thrown around, the first thing that comes to mind are upper-class NIMBYs with the "status quo isn't that bad" mentality who basically want to go back to the 80s just without giving people the cushion that were built in the 50s-70s. It was that buffer that actually got them through the tax revolt era without immediate collapse.
I could be wrong, but I hope that you ask others for their opinions on it.
