Here is a schema which is more descriptively precise than the customary binary model (more info at e.g. [http://www.politicalcompass.org]:
# xod (English)
Let] the political map ''turni ve skicu cartu'' be plotted on orthogonal axes of two variables, one of which measures a contimuum from extreme centralization ''jecta vlipa'' to extreme decentralization ''se gugde vlipa''; the other measuring a contimuum from highly formalized social sanctions ''flalu jitro'' to highly informal social sanctions ''tcaci jitro''.
# Craig (into Spanish)
Thus we have divided the political -spectrum into quadrants of ''broda cei jecyvli joi cactro'', ''brode cei jecyvli joi flatro'', ''brodi cei selgugvli joi cactro'', and ''brodo cei selgugvli joi flatro''.
# Lee (into Lojban)
At present there is little difference between the two American political parties in military, environmental or social policies, but one might imagine that the self-image ''trucmu senva'' of the Democratic Party includes (minority-protective) laws, and that of the Republicans - an emphasis more on traditional values e.g. custom.
# Jorge (into Spanish)
Therefore the legitimized Left amounts to ''brode milxe'' and the legitimized Right ''broda milxe'', while the other two quadrants are populated by the largely-imaginary "parties" of Libertarianism and Socialistic Anarchism.
# Rob Speer (into Lojban)
Since the rhetoric which comprises political discourse at the present time contains little or no semantic content, it would be entirely fruitless to attempt to translate this into a language of default-unfigurative signifiers like Lojban. Rather, attitudinals should be used whenever possible. --''mi'e maikl.'' -*.i .u'i .i mi'e cein.
