Political spectrums can end when one group wins so throughly that there is no longer a divergence of opinions.
This traditional political spectrum is defined along an axis with Conservatism ("the right") on one end, and Socialism ("the left", called Liberalism in the United States) on the other.
The usage in Western politics of "right" and "left" to refer to political affiliation stems at least from the French National Assembly in 1789, during the French Revolution.

But the left/right model has been in use for over 200 years (it is based on the seating arrangements at the first French Parliament following the French Revolution), and many argue that it is outdated.
Clearly, a more refined political model must be found, since the left/right scale is not enough to account for all the differences between political ideologies.
Another two-dimensional model is the one put forward by The Political Compass, which has one axis ('x') for economic issues (Left/Right) and another axis ('y') for social issues (Authoritarian/Libertarian).

 Reconstructing Philosophy 2   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
In the case of Greek republican politics, the paradigm of the decision-maker was the statesman, the citizen-ruler.
The role of the political philosopher was to provide a scheme of constitutional categories, to clarify the criteria to be applied in the process of assessing particular cases and perhaps to examine particular cases of political decision-making considered by most to have been successful.
The doctrine identified with Aristotelian political philosophy was a doctrine shaped by a clear definition of the rhetorical situation it addressed, the rhetorical standpoint it assumed and the rhetorical effects it sought to achieve.

 Anti Essays : : Models of Political Ideology
First, however, to explain the importance of the square model verses the linear model, the understanding of the different elements involved in these models must be explained.
The better of the two models for the ideological spectrum is the square model verses the linear model.
The linear model also places ideologies together that have similar qualities, but these qualities are also equally similar to the opposite side of the spectrum.

Second, the partisan model outperforms the opportunistic one as an explanation of macroeconomic fluctuations in output growth, inflation, and unemployment.
While the idea that parties are not all alike may strike many of the non professional political scientists as obvious, an established tradition in political science emphasizes the tendency of parties in two-bloc systems to converge to the middle.
For instance, in the late Seventies the political barometer of OECD tilted toward the left: in the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom, left-leaning governments pursued expansionary policy, leading to a temporary boom and a build-up of inflation (aggravated by the second oil shock).

 Computational Political Economy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Computational work typically models political actors as locally informed, boundedly rational agents, and attempts to incorporate learning, communication, and cooperation into political models.
Computational modeling also has a great deal in common with experimental work, insofar as any computational model must arrive at reasonable algorithms that govern the behavior of political agents.
The second answer is that computational modeling is a bridge between the restrictions inherent in analytic approaches, and experimental work that is often not precise in detailing the dynamics of a given phenomenon.

 Theoretical Models in Political Sociology
The pluralist model of politics was developed largely by political scientists, although it is essentially based on certain sociological principles.
Nor can politics be explained by the study of leaders, since these leaders reflect group interests and their behavior cannot be understood except from the perspective of group analysis.
Many political issues such as the fl revolt, the youth movement, the environmental crisis, and the women's movement were not predicted by those who were using Marxist models of thought any more than they were by pluralists.

 I am a collector of political models
In particular, while the generation based model seems good at determining when a crisis might occur, or at least how a society is apt to respond to a challenge at a given time, other perspectives might be better for identifying the nature of the crisis.
If T4T is a cyclic model that predicts cyclic behavior, if The Third Wave tracks fundamental shifts in civilization patterns and thus predicts a fundamental change in civilization, it is hardly surprising that Clash of Civilizations anticipates any major crisis will develop along the boundaries of the seven civilizations.
The merit of the model is thus in the data provided to support a match between the model and the real world.

Political modelers must constrain their domains by imposing simplifying assumptions so stringent that their models no longer represent adequately the complex political processes they purport to describe (cf.
By simulating planning and counterplanning in belief models, political analysts may be able to devise models of strategic interaction that capture the contents of strategy and not merely their form.
Political science and artificial intelligence are both ``sciences of the artificial,'' in the apt phrase of political scientist and AI pioneer Herbert Simon (1981).

Part of that debate was driven by what values were inherent in the network models, a discussion that I felt was high on rhetoric and short on substance.
The problem I see is that the old political pros in the Kerry campaign only know the Roman Army model, adopted by the Catholic Church: A standard plan enforced from the top down.
The star model breaks of course when it is streched thin so that its network resembles an asteroid belt.

 Is Political Business Cycle Theory Relevant to Ireland?
As it happens, all the models that they place in their taxonomy assume voters' inflation myopia, but a significant amount of the literature instead ignores voters' myopia in favour of asymmetric information between voters and future governments as the cause of the cycles.
The political popularity function expresses a party's support as a function of the unemployment, inflation and economic growth rates, while the latter embodies the responsive ideological preferences of the incumbent government.
Regarding the B assumptions, the adaptive and rational expectations approaches to studying inflationary expectations in the models are untenable given the prominence of indicative planning in Ireland, especially in the latter half of the sample period.

My copy of PS: Political Science and Policy — a quarterly journal published by the American Political Science Association — arrived at home this week with some encouraging news for the White House: Bush is the likely winner.
The models, which are technically not predictions of who will "win" the presidential election, but rather forecasts of the share of the national two-party vote President Bush or Senator Kerry will achieve, are nonetheless good news for the incumbent's reelection prospects.
The American Political Science Association, which publishes PS and is composed primarily of academic political scientists, is not generally known for its pro-Republican tilt.

 USCFL- Three Political Models for Lebanese Christians
The Swiss model would be the same in terms of internal organization, but Lebanon would be completely political neutral.
The Cyprus/Israel/India model would involve partitioning Lebanon into two countries, one with a strong Christian majority and the other with a strong Muslim majority, with population transfers if necessary (Druze could choose which country they wanted to live in).
This is a dangerous choice, but the Palestine model has already clearly failed while the Swiss model would demand the Lebanese Muslims radically changing their worldview, ideology, and behavior, which is probably hopeless.
