The great middle believes that the opinions of all citizens must find universal agreement with each other and sees widely differentiating views as a threat to the political harmony it craves so much. What idea that defines the great middle isn't as important as the harmony it hopes to achieve by creating a great middle. It sees the individual's right to hold a unique opinion as a threat to that harmony by polarizing two sides of any argument so every effort is made to create conformity by replacing opposing positions with a single postition known as the great middle. The arguments that the great middle believers often use are not a defense of their own ideas but explanations about why joining the great middle is beneficial (such as efficiency or not being the party of no) which implies that conformity and harmony are more important than the actual idea that defines the great middle itself. They expect all individuals to augment their own beliefs in order to reach compliance in order to create harmony. What kind of thinking believes that everyone must have the same political opinion in the first place?
