There's an old blog entry by Steven Den Beste that I often think back on when I hear partisan discussion between Republican and Democrat. It's one where he discusses orthogonal axes of political position. And should that link go stale, some keywords are realism, idealism, conservative, revolutionary, liberal and autocrat.
For me, it's one of those eye-openers. It helps me better accept my own political position.
Self, here's that link. But self, isn't that what del.icio.us is for? Yeah... But I wanted to share.
