I read the following comment to a blog at the Adam Smith Institutes‘s website and found it rather thought-provoking:
Libertarians on the right of the political spectrum have an uphill battle as socialism appears to be derived from intuitive thought rather than rational thought and as most people tend to be intuitive and subjective and not rational and objective socialism is far more appealing to the majority.
I have always thought that most people in England were, by their very nature, right of centre, and I have always been bewildered at how Socialism seems to attract so many voters.
Perhaps the “right of centre” parties should take note of this and start changing their tactics.
