The Political Compass


I came across this interesting site that attempts to quantify the political spectrum a little better than the normal right verses left. It takes the left and right in their traditional sense to mean economic policy (Collectivism vs. Individualism) , but says that they aren't enough and adds an up down to mean Authoritarian vs. Libertarian. Once you have defined the up, down, left, and right positions, you can plot political leaders on a graph and compare them more accurately. The site also has a test you can take, to see where you would fit on the graph. All in all, a pretty cool site.
