The political compass is a British website that tries to map politicians on 2-D grid, left-right horizontal and authoritarian-libertarian on the vertical. Their opinion of the US candidates is predictable, but still amusing compared to the US media (and much of the US public) perception.

Defining a political candidate takes more than two dimensions, but I DO like how the show Bernie just left of center and Hillary pretty far right. That seems about accurate.

Brilliant!

Donald Trump has simply cast himself as a solution. Trump is in many ways just saying what the other candidates would say on cocaine, but he’s also a unity candidate. His hope is to bring all of America together in their rejection of reality.

For America, and indeed the rest of the world, Clinton versus Trump will be like being on a bus being driven at high speed towards a cliff by a psychopath, where there’s a chance that a chimpanzee might grab control of the steering wheel. It’s not a question of whether this will make things better or worse, it’s more that the whole idea of “better” may be gradually ceasing to exist.
