    4. The Political Spectrum • Where do you stand?

    5. Stand up for what you believe in • Line up where you believe you stand on the political spectrum • You may be confused, but you won’t be for long!

    6. The Political Spectrum Copy this in your notes

    7. What is a Continuum? What does this mean? Summarize this with your neighbor and write your answer on the paper provided. • A person’s views on the issues help determine where they fall on the political spectrum. • The labels used on the spectrum are not pure categories, but they make up a continuum, or value line, and citizens and politicians fall somewhere on that line depending on what they believe.

    8. Factors That Determine Placement • Change ---- Status quo • Government involvement in the economy • Freedom from government authority

    9. Hello! My Name Is:__________ Fill in your continuum as we go through the next few slides Political Labels

    10. What is a Radical? • Far left of the political spectrum, • Wide-sweeping rapid change in the basic structure of the political, social, or economic system. • May be willing to resort to extreme methods to bring about change, including the use of violence and revolution. V.I. Lenin: Mastermind of the Russian Revolution and Father of the Soviet Union

    11. What is a Liberal? • Liberals believe that the government should be actively involved in the promotion of social welfare of a nation’s citizens. • They usually call for peaceful, gradual change within the existing political system. • They reject violent revolution as a way of changing the way things are, often called the status quo. Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King

    12. What is a Moderate? • Moderates may share viewpoints with both liberals and conservatives. • They are seen as tolerant of other people’s views, and they do not hold extreme views of their own. • They advocate a “go-slow” or “wait-and-see” approach to social or political change. Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) is generally seen as a moderate.

    13. What is a Conservative? • People who hold conservative ideals favor keeping things the way they are or maintaining the status quo if it is what they desire. • Conservatives are usually hesitant or cautious about adopting new policies, especially if they involve government activism in some way. • They feel that the less government there is, the better. • They agree with Jefferson’s view that “the best government governs least.” Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) is widely regarded as the father of the modern conservative movement

    14. What is a Reactionary? • Sitting on the far right of the ideological spectrum, reactionaries want to go back to the way things were—the “good ol’ days.”Often reactionaries are willing to use extreme methods, such as repressive use of government power, to achieve their goals. • The term “reactionary is generally negative. A positive way to say the same thing is “arch-conservative.” Hitler’s Mein Kampf is a typical reactionary manifesto

    15. The Political Spectrum

    16. Stand up for what you believe in • Line up where you believe you stand on the political spectrum

    17. A better way of looking at it

    18. What do we mean by Left and Right? • Left of center = “liberalism” (for example: same sex marriages) Right of center – “conservatism” (for example: heterosexual / traditional marriages

    19. Creating Your Left or Right Poster: Directions: • In pairs, create a poster (based on whether you were allocated ‘Left’ or ‘Right’) to share with the class • Consider issues that you will represent on your poster – for example: Marriage, religion, monarchy, military, nationalism, immigration, family values, etc
