Moving away from polarisation in the left/right debate

Eric Weinstein describes to Sam Harris a hidden structure that he believes stands in the way of reasoned discussion.

It’s perhaps one of the most confusing charts you’ll see, but there is something to thinking of things across two axis rather than the usual one (e.g. left-right).i

“This expansion of the left-right model to the four quadrant model, I think is going to liberate a lot of people who have been drifting to the right, who wonder what happened to the left. When did it become a crime to support liberal ideas in what is traditionally thought of as left-of-centre politics”
