Ideological Spectrum Test Upload



It's kind of a crappy effort, my first. But this is how I view ideologies in America, of our media, the two parties, and the general public.

1. Sorry About Quality

Had to do it in Excel, save it, print it on old smudgy printer, then scan it into a jpeg.

2. As a proud lifelong liberal with socialist tendencies, I think it's a great effort

I understand it, and surely that's the point! Well done, indeed.

3. Thanks

Maybe I'll clean it up some and repost later.

I just get tired of people thinking the corporate left is the actual left.

Mostly in truth it represents the corporate and rich moneyed influence on our media, and our parties. If you lived back in the sixties and seventies, the green line would be a far better representation of where all bars were. They were all more aligned. Now we've had corrupting media concentration, manufacturing content, folding news into entertainment divisions, and most important, the FCC quit on the Fairness Doctrine, allowing the new bifurcated media to develop.

If you are less than 40 years old, you will have never seen the Green bar, the people's bar. But if you listen to C-Span, you'll still hear them calling.

4. Change the text color in the dark colored blocks to white.

You're using Excel. It's easy. Just select the text, right click it, and select font. Text color is right there in the Font dialog box.
