I feel like that post on centrism is attacking a straw man. I'm not a centrist because I think it's important to compromise with people with different political views. I'm a centrist because I actually believe that free markets with carefully targeted regulation and a redistributive tax system are superior to either managed economies or complete deregulation with no welfare state.

On immigration I do believe that it's necessary to compromise somewhat from my preferred stance, but that's not me being a centrist, that's me being an extremist who acknowledges that I'm not actually going to get what I want until the Overton window shifts such that completely open borders stops being seen as extreme.
