I don't think there is a steady march to the left in western democraties.
Maybe in the US (or NA) there is, but you have a 2 party democraty (more or less at least, in practice there's always 1 party at power in a certain segment, never a coalition) but in the rest of the western world its quite the opposite..
By far in most western democraties the government always is made up of a coalition of different parties. And especially on the centrum right side there has been a big divide up and birth of new right winged parties in virtually every country. I'm talking about the timespan of about the last 2 decades.
Right winged politics in western democraties have never been this strong and spread out (so lots to choose from) as today.
In the 60's-90's that was a complete different story. Of course there was firm militairy cooperation with the US because of the red curtain but inland politics was much more left focussed back then as it is now in the majority of western democraties.
