    It makes no sense to draw a spectrum based on the platforms of a political party that can change from generation to generation, or on the seating charts of Euroabian parliaments.

    By the beard of the profit, you need to be a bit more sober before you post things like this.

    I might agree with you, I usually do, but I can't figure out what you are doing here

    Placing the political world into this more accurate framework yields a number of important corollary benefits and insights:

    Gone is the muddled notion that if one moves too far from tyranny, one only encounters more tyranny. Liberty is the opposite of tyranny, and the more accurate spectrum makes that clear.
    Leftist critics become less persuasive when depicting conservatives as incipient fascists. They can no longer warn that if one becomes too conservative, one becomes a fascist tyrant. To the contrary, the conservative is identified with liberty, while the liberal has more affinity with tyranny, whether soft or hard.
    Moderates lose their hallowed position and aura of wisdom and restraint. They are simply a bit more conservative than liberals and more liberal than conservatives, i.e. they are less jealous of their liberty than are those to their right.
    Libertarianism has a home. It resides at the right end of the spectrum, reflecting the maximization of liberty.
