8. "moderate" is the most weaselly word in the political lexicon.

It's used when things really fucking extreme are being shoved down people's throats, and people are being told to suck it up because it's "moderate". It's used when the 1% (or .01%, more like it) have agreed on a plan to fuck over the 99.9%, and figure they can easily do it because they own the MSM. The MSM that promotes exactly that kind of "moderation" by denying everyone else a voice.
