Political spectra.

I’m working on a post about the traditional “right vs. left” political spectrum, and for background reading I looked up the Wikipedia article on the topic.

I’d never realized, I’m ashamed to admit, the variety of more complex models for political divides that have been developed. Even more interesting is the fact that you rarely see any of them used in most mainstream political analysis, even though it seems pretty clear the usual model is not sufficient.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
