Definitivamente, la derecha y la izquierda están a punto de desaparecer ideológicamente por fusión, confusión y difusión de sus ideologías. No se olvide que suna y otra son las dos patas de la revolución. Hoy os traigo los ejemplos de Alemania y Reino Unido, pero podría valer para España cambiando muy pocas cosas.
En el partido Democristiano alemán, la palabra conservador es ya un insulto: The Center Shifts Left. Los socialdemócratas se han desplazado hacia la izquierda, los demo”cristianos” han ido a ocupar su lugar:

The Berlin Declaration
In the CDU, “Conservative” Is Almost An Insult
by Thomas Schmid
January 14, 2010
The CDU is trying to develop a modern profile. It is reconstituting itself in a present which its traditional voters will find inhospitable. That may be smart, but there is a danger that the “C” in the name could be little more than a memory.
(…) the leftward shift of the SPD suggests that the CDU think about (the SPD’s) old social-democratic clientele. Above all, however, the party seems fiercely determined to find its footing along all the front lines of modernization and changes in values.
En el caso de Reino Unido, Cameron subraya que su objetivo es borrar la línea que separa derecha e izquierda (Where Have All the Conservatives Gone?):
The difference between the Democrats and the Republicans in the USA is striking in comparison to the difference between Labour and the Conservatives. Britain’s Conservative Party is a supporter of nationalized healthcare, and has embraced bureaucratic “multiculturalism,” and environmentalism.
“And over the past four years,” Cameron said on Sunday, reminiscent of Obama’s campaign rhetoric, “we have always tried to work with other parties rather than looking for political dividing lines where none exist.” That’s the problem. There should be a dividing line between Left and Right, between those who are politically correct and those who are prepared to face the difficult issues, those who want nationalized healthcare, a welfare state, etc., and those who don’t. If Labour won’t tackle radical Islam, rising crime, uncontrolled immigration, the EU (which makes 75 percent of Britain’s laws), then the opposition must.
Cameron doesn’t get that. Consequently his party goes up and down in the polls depending on what the country thinks of the Labour government, not what it thinks of the Conservatives. And in December, with the elections looming, his party was at its lowest point in the polls since May.
El UKIP quiere coger los votos de la derecha desafecta al moderantismo patológico:
In August, former Conservative Cabinet minister Lord Tebbit remarked that Cameron’s electioneering strategy would drive “hard-core” conservatives to vote for UKIP, and this does indeed appear to be happening.
UKIP will run 500 candidates in the general election, and Lord Pearson has said he hopes to force a hung parliament. If so, his party will push for a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, and raise the issues of pressing importance to the country, especially the country’s conservatives.
Most readers will be aware of Lord Pearson. He was thrust into the limelight almost a year ago, after he invited Geert Wilders to screen his movie, Fitna, to a private audience in the House of Lords. Britain doesn’t have an equivalent to Wilders. But with his experience of party politics, his moral compass, and willingness to address the issues, he might well be on the way to becoming something close to it. Naturally, the media isn’t keen to include him the debates leading up to election day.
