Picoblog Question – 2015 – Post #57

What is the easiest way to visualize the 2D political-definitions model?

My two cents, but please share yours:

I think it is easiest to visualize the vertical and horizontal scales of the 2D political-definitions model as a “plus” sign, tagged as follows.

  • Libertarians at north
  • Totalitarians at south
  • Centrists at the origin
  • Conservatives at east
  • Liberals at west

Also label the endpoints as follows.

  • Northern tip as “100% Total Freedom (Anarchy)”
  • Southern tip as “0% Total Freedom (Slavery)”
  • Eastern tip as “100% Economic Freedom”
  • Western tip as “100% Social/Personal Freedom”

(Total Freedom = Social/Personal Freedom + Economic Freedom)



  1. Really interesting model. My writer’s hat is very happy!

    • Thank you so much, D. Wallace. Hope this model is useful for you. Cheers, Ashley
