Apparently, this is where out left-right political continuum comes from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legislative_Assembly_(France)

It seems that according to the article, that anyone who is anti-statist is inherently left, which i find rather ironic

Even more ironic is the idea that a political spectrum based upon the physical make-up of any national political body could reasonably represent anti-statists anywhere.  Almost as ironic as hearing a political candidate refer to himself as an anarchist.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

In the 1970s in Australia, the libertarian party tried to introduce a two-dimensional spectrum. They described themselves as "up-wing", but couldn't get the term to catch on.

This is the Nolan chart you're talking about, isn't it? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nolan_Chart

Well no, because Nolan didn't use the term "up-wing". But maybe the 1970s libertarians got their idea from Nolan.
