The Political Continuum

Politcal SystemsI created this interesting graphic representing the continuum of political ideas, the three extremes being communism, dictatorship and anarchy. This is just a thought experiment, but things fit surprisingly well. If you draw a line from each point through the middle of the triangle, you get a different continuum: communism, unionism, liberalism, capitalism; dictatorship, conservatism, liberalism, social democracy; and anarchy, federalism, liberalism, totalitarianism. The edges of the triangle are also continua.
