    Still waiting for you to provide any sources, so how about you provide them before haranguing other people, who had already given sources anyway.

    I got it from www.politicalcompass.org

    I figured that their style of graph would be so familiar, people would just recognize it. Apparently not.

    They go through their methodology in detail in the FAQ on their site.

    That would make it useless for comparing graphs to other graphs: the difference in mainstream political spectrums between countries or eras.


    Read the FAQ. Their methodology is pretty reasonable. They based a "10" on any scale as the extreme seen in human ideologies, and then put the zero point midway between the two extremes.

    Hitler wouldn't have been absolutely far right economically.

    And I think it's very fair to say that Trump and Bush are both at the extreme end of authoritarianism. The main difference between Hitler and most other authoritarians - i.e. that Hitler supported his authoritarian ideology with mass murder on an industrial scale instead of the traditional deportations, imprisonments, etc. - isn't really captured in the survey.

    Nonsense.

    You just acknowledged that they're working to establish and preserve protections of human rights.

    She's on the left, but definitely not a radical. Political radicalism/extremism, on both the right and left, is characterized by pursuing revolutionary change, including through violence. She is not a revolutionary. She's just calling for reform.

    If you think that opposing fascism is radical, then I suggest you take a long, hard look at your own values.
