I am the new Dalai Lama

Any move to try and analyse phenomena in anything more than a basic dualist model of left and right, right and wrong, has to be welcome. This is why the political compass is a pretty interesting little distraction as it plots not only left and right but authoritarian and libertarian axes. The plotting is reminiscent of personal construct elicitation – but thats just by the by…

For the record, I was expecting to appear somewhere between Hitler and Pinochet, but actually appear deep down in the libertarian left with the Dalai Lama.
