NDP being dragged to the right by the Liberals?

I found this a tad amusing:

I never imagined the NDP was such a hot bed of right wing conservatism.
Sure, apes read Nietzsche.  They just don't understand it.

Muclair attempted to drag them closer to centre and almost succeeded till the party faithful came to the rescue and stabbed him in the back, now they are happily back in their comfortable blanket of irrelevancy, ranting and complaining.

I noted during the last election that the NDP and Liberals each got the leader who belonged in the other party.

Since the core ideas of Socialism were formulated in the mid 1800's, and Progressivism is also an artifact of the late 19th/early 20th century, it is indeed fair to say the NDP is a very "conservative" organization......
Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.
