Higher permissiveness, on either axis, indicates a "live and let live" philosophy. Of course, we're almost conditioned in America, "Land of the Free", to think positively of such a philosophy. But practically speaking, permissiviness (or its opposite, regulation) can create any number of outcomes:

For example, on the economic axis, a highly permissive system, like the American system of the early 1900s, might mean things like low taxes and increased scientific innovation. It might also result, as it did back then, in unrestricted child labor and millions of poor people with black lung.

At the other end of the economic spectrum, a highly regulated system might conserve the environment, establish national health care, and eliminate poverty. But as we've learned from the Soviet system, extreme regulation can also lead to stagnation, sameness, and unhappiness
I'm rather strong Democrat, hehe. Somewhere very near Hilary Clinton

  1. Same here, except I'm an economic moderate with 50% permissive. Too bad, I am not Bush, or the world today would be much better (because Iran and Korea would be bombarded. And I would then eye on China. Well, I think I just need to spend 3 atomic bombs in total, rite?). ;)
