Why liberalism and leftism are increasingly at odds

I thought this was an interesting framing of political discourse, but hadn't seen it referenced elsewhere. So, now I'm referencing it elsewhere.

Silver creates a Socialism-Conservatism-Liberalism triangle, proposing that this three-axis (yet still two dimensional) dynamic describes much of political discourse. He doesn't make a direct contrast to the traditional political compass, but their respective merits seems like a good question.

We ask for a submission statement on frontpage posts. Please go into more detail about the article, we don't need a full on summary, but some context is necessary beyond that from just the headline. It's not a bad post and it's a reputable writer, but you need to make us aware of why it's worth reading before we approve it.

Apologies. I'm rushed, but hopefully describing the basic idea and the prior idea it implicitly contrasts is a sufficient explanation of why it's worth discussing.

Well that's better than nothing so I'll approve it.

I am grateful for your tolerance of my incompetence.
