The Pournelle Axes

In his Ph.D. dissertation these many years ago, Jerry Pournelle examined the traditional left-right political spectrum, found it wanting and even dangerous, and devised a two-dimensional grid, the Pournelle Axes, to replace it. To my surprise, I find that I'm about a 2.5/2.5, right next to what he calls the American counter-culture!

If you aren't reading his daybook, you should. I keep it in my browser's bookmarks and check it out every evening.
