Picoblog Question – 2015 – Post #54

What is the horizontal scale for the 2D political model?

My two cents, but please share yours:

The horizontal scale for the 2D political model is in fact the 1D political model.

Extremist Left <–> Liberal <–> Centrist <–> Conservative <–> Extremist Right

  • Liberals favor social/personal freedoms over economic freedoms, and favor the US Constitution
  • Centrists balance social/personal freedoms and economic freedoms, and favor the US Constitution
  • Conservative favor economic freedoms over social/personal freedoms, and favor the US Constitution

The Extremist Left and the Extremist Right do not favor the US Constitution. Both want more government control (laws, regulations, taxes) than the US Constitution allows.
