I think of myself as a Centrist. True centrism must include 3 things: Good work ethics, Winning the social-economic general competitive game by consensus building, and Striving for beauty and refinement.
It is good for me or anyone else to attempt to be all that can be accomplished, as long as I am trying to beautify and refine life. If I do this by consensus building, then I am exerting effort, and I am not passing all the work-load on to others. Circular logic is good when I care about people in general.
I believe this philosophy was implied in society to some degree in America in the past. Over time, ruthlessness has replaced the finer ideals of the past. Effort is required in life to build value. By definition, value wins as time goes by. This is the definition of white. Apparently, I am the only white person on earth.
