3-D Nolan Chart?

I agree with Sonia. I've been interested in the possibility of a third
axis or dimension to the Nolan chart almost as long as I've known about
the chart, but I don't think this model got it right. The "fiscal" and
"corporate" axis contain too much overlap to represent truly different

  I've sometimes remarked to people that the political struggle only
represents half of the ideal world I want to live in. The other half is
cultural. For example, it would be theoretically possible to live in a
libertarian society made up of fundamentalist Christians. You could
legally use drugs, be sexually nonconformist, dress creatively, live a
slacker lifestyle, etc., but it would be socially frowned upon to such
an extent that people would be very uncomfortable publicly engaging in
such behavior. Even if it were perfectly libertarian, I doubt I would
find such a society preferable to the one we live in now.

  The philosophy of libertarianism, as I see it, provides a "unifying
field theory" for the political side of that map. I have found no
equivalent theory to make sense of the cultural side. The cultural side
of the map is messy; it doesn't lend itself as easily to definitions
and categories; it has not been analyzed the way politics has. As Hakim
Bey says, "it is not a clean, well-lit room."

  If there is a third axis to the Nolan chart, I believe it is an axis
of personal style. I haven't found what I think are good terms to
describe the poles of this axis. Conformity and nonconformity are one
pair of terms that could describe the poles. One could also call them
mainstream and alternative, or traditional and bohemian.

  To illustrate: In the libertarian movement, there are
anarcho-capitalists who in political terms are nearly off the Nolan
chart in their libertarianism, yet on a personal level they may be
quite straightlaced. On the opposite extreme of this dimension, you can
find lots of people who are culturally alternative, hedonistic,
nonconformist, etc., yet may be quite conventional (statist) in their
politics. [Of course you can also find many examples of the opposite --
people who live quite "normally," and subscribe to mainstream (statist)
political thought, and people who embrace social nonconformity along
with the politically subversive.]

  Taking a stab at what might be some characteristics of the two poles
of this axis...
