    I thought I understood 'Left Wing' and 'Right Wing' but now I'm all confused. :o:

    I could have sworn that my dot on the graph leans to the left and up, ever so slightly.

    Besides, isn't extreme Libertarianism just Anarchism?

    How would you define the 4 extremes on the graph?
    well it's in the libertarian sector rather than the authoritarian sector rather than in the liberal or conservative or authoritarian sector.

    I wouldn't call it anarchy... but if I did, extremist Libertarianism would be Anarchism, extremist Liberalism would be Social Democracy on speed, extremist Conservatism would be Theocracy, and Authoritarianism would be Stalinism/Fascism.

    Radical Liberal (far left corner in square):
    "You want government out of your personal life. On the other hand, you want more government in your economic life. This puts you closest to either the Green Party or the radical wing of the Democratic Party. You might even consider yourself a socialist, or a “true” communist (as opposed to the “state capitalists” who ran the old Soviet Union). Approximately 3% of the takers of this quiz scored in this area, 18% for all liberals outside the centrist circle. "

    You're right, my dot is in the Libertarian sector.

    Anyway, where would you put Nazism?

    I'd put it at the extreme of 'Less Personal Freedom', but in the middle of the Economic Freedom axis.

    I think this graph needs a Nationalism axis. Otherwise, if you think about it, the BNP would be around the Liberal square.
    I'm not sure if that really would make sense.

    Probably at zero personal freedom and very little economic freedom. Nazis were not capitalists in any sense of the word.

    Returning Anony Mouse's PM;

    BNP are very similar to the Green Party in their policies, if you just reverse Green immigration policy. That is, a generally authoritarian view of economics, although they differ more on social policy, they come together on some issues where they think that the power of the state can solve social 'problems.' What you described, i.e Nationalism + Libertarianism/Conservatism is more UKIP-like.

    Yeah you're right about UKIP, in that case, the BNP would be .... in the centre of the Liberal square? :eek:

    That's why there should be a third axis, the Nationalism based axis.
