The political compass is a political defining square, with four quadrants, with a questionnaire to identify you. As the political spectrum was quite unreflective of a lot of factors, they added a y/social axis to the current x/economic axis. A great example of why this is better than the plain old spectrum is France’s National front. It is often dubbed as “the far right party of France”, however, a lot of its economic policies are further left than the socialist party, so, it would give a lot more context to its beliefs. Authoritarianism tends to believe in government control, while libertarianism tends to believe in less government. Economic left tends to believe in spending more money and being open to progression, while conservatism tends to believe in cutting spending, and taking a cautious approach to progression. This has resulted in left wingers believing in equality and conservatism believing in hierarchy.

A subreddit which carries the unique distinction of probably being the only political discussion community on the internet where people belonging to all political ideologies can interact and discuss their opinions with each other without someone getting their panties in a twist. A die-hard liberal can laugh at a meme along with a Trump supporter; a communist can amicably chat with a anarchist; etc. etc. This is quite remarkable considering that 99% of political subreddits inevitably become echo chambers full of vocal extremists that shoot down anyone with even slightly differing opinions.

Probably will get banned in a year or two.
