WHAT DOES MODERATE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Moderate

In politics and religion, a moderate is an individual who is not extreme, partisan, nor radical. In recent years, the term political moderates has gained traction as a buzzword. The existence of the ideal moderate is disputed because of a lack of a moderate political ideology. Many people claim to be moderate because of a lack of adherence with the more radical sides of the political or religious spectrum, rather than advocating a specific stance. Aristotle favoured conciliatory politics dominated by the centre rather than the extremes of great wealth and poverty or the special interests of oligarchs and tyrants.

Definition of moderate in the English dictionary

The first definition of moderate in the dictionary is not extreme or excessive; within due or reasonable limits. Other definition of moderate is not violent; mild or temperate. Moderate is also of average quality or extent.
