I guess this is sort of a chart, interesting information.

http://life.nationalpost.com/2012/03/23/graphic-a-demographic-breakdown-of-the-world-of-religion/

It is interesting that the most bitter enemies in relegion are not the most alien to each other, but rather those more similar. Christian/Islam, Suni/Shia.

A thing often hidden from view is how much the Suni Arabs dislike the Shia powers in Iran. There is more hatred there, than there is between Israel and Iran. Typically the locals attack Israel to legitimize themselves with the other locals, of that region. Israel is a claimant to parts of one holy city, but the Suni/Shia schism is in theory in confilct for all the major Islamic holy cities, even though they get along well enought to worship at them.

And then there is the competition for the Oil business.

Good Conservative Capitalism for the win.

In Britain blue is the colour of conservativism. Does Canada associate red with the right-wing the way America does? Or was your choice entirely arbitrary?

You are correct, it was arbitrary and I did hesitate. But I figured that since Quebec's flag is blue and Quebec is generally more Liberal than English-Canada who have a red flag, I'd go with that model.

But this inversion in relationships to liberalism and conservatism are worthy of further investigation. So yes I'm open to communicating the notion by using different color associations definitely.

What I like about the America use of red for the right-wing is that it takes the colour away from socialism. It is the socialist use of red that led it being percieved that way in Europe. I say, why should the socialists have it? It's a perfectly good colour and was the national colour of my nation long before anyone hoisted up the blood red banner of communism.

On the other hand, I have no idea how blue originated as the colour of conservativism in Britain.

lol I like how the creator of this graph streached the blue line to make it look like a 6 point change is the same rate as a 12 point change. :lol: :wink:
