Politics. What's all that about? Why read hefty tomes and endless newspaper column inches when you can have the entire political spectrum digested for you in seconds with this handy poster, courtesy of the Information is Beautiful project.
Presented in 2011's format du jour, the infographic, Left vs. Right crisply visualises and describes what it means to be affiliated with one side or another of the body politic. And looks awfully pretty while it's at it.
In keeping with Australian sensibilities, the Left gets red and the Right gets blue. The top to bottom ranges from government to family to the differing attitudes toward blowing up foreigners. An educational and attractive A2-sized asset to any room.
