R1 vs. R2: Hierarchy vs Fairness

An attempt to classify the world into two major spectra: an authoritarian worldview (R1) and a cooperative, collaborative one (R2).

The former tends to be the value system associated with the right wing on the political spectrum (conservatives, Libertarians, the alt-Right, and so on), while the latter is associated with Progressives and liberals.
