The arrangement of positions along the left-right axis—progressive to reactionary, or conservative to liberal, communist to fascist, socialist to capitalist, or Democrat to Republican—is conceptually confused, ideologically tendentious, and historically contingent. And any position anywhere along it is infested by contradictions.


Mr. Sartwell's own words couldn't have described his article better if he'd written it himself.

Rather than a left-right spectrum I propose we transition to an uppers and downers spectrum.
