Last year I wrote a post on how the biggest political divide today is between collectivists (or authoritarians) and individualists, not left vs right. Trump had already announced his presidential campaign then, but little did I know how tyrannically politically correct he would be be, threatening to sue newspapers for reporting on him and conservative groups for running ads against him and all manner of other anti-free speech activity.

I made a chart at the time showing how people on the left or right can either choose to support freedom or coercion. Now I have modified the chart to put Trump in his proper place. Note that he is in the middle of the political spectrum, because while he isn’t actually conservative on very many issues.
