I enjoyed the cut and thrust of H.P.’s Brexit thread, but at some point it got a bit bogged down in complex political terminology. Tahir made a comment about political postings on a music site, and it made me think of all the different sorts of political philosophy/ideolology/dogma that one can list and how they are a bit like musical genres – over simplified but sometimes helpful as a basic guide to a school of thought/musical form.
Then I thought, I wonder if there is a musical genre for every school of political thought. Could we map them, one to another and say why they match?
I’ll post a few example genres and philosophies in the first comment, as a form of kindling, then step back, and watch to see if the bally thing lights up.
