A reader writes,
I think Ferguson is a great illustration of your 3 axis model. Would love to read a post of your’s discussing that.
I have been on vacation with only sporadic skimming of news. All I know is that a black resident was shot by a white policeman, and some rioting has ensued. The three-axis model would predict:
–progressives would view the black resident as representing an oppressed class. They would be critical of society’s unjust inequality and racism.
–conservatives would view rioters as representing barbarism. They would be critical of anyone they think encourages rioting.
–libertarians would view the police as representing coercion. They would be critical of police who act as if the unlimited use of force is their prerogative.
Again, I have only been skimming the news. Is that actually how views have been falling out?
