This series of graphics illustrates ICE’s latest approach to mapping the ‘landscape of values’ that underlie American politics.
The first graphic below shows how the significant influence of culture can be conceived with reference to the ‘Bedrock Values’ of the electorate.The circles graphic below shows America’s three major values-based worldviews, which we’re calling: ‘Traditionals, Moderns, and Progressives,’ (including their approximate percentage of the population). These worldviews compete to define America’s political ‘Bedrock Values.’ Source: World Values Survey www.worldvaluessurvey.org
When these three major values-based worldviews are mapped onto the left-right spectrum of America’s two-party system (as shown below), the three worldviews suggest four distinct political positions.
The two charts below show the details of America’s four distinct political values systems. Each of the four values categories includes positive and enduring ‘Bedrock Values,’ as well as shortcomings and deficiencies that are tied directly to that category’s positive values. Seeing ‘Bedrock Values’ through this lens suggests a fresh kind of national leadership that can integrate the full spectrum of American values into its platform. For more on these values charts see the ICE paper: Overcoming Polarization By Evolving Both Right and Left

Please allow me one more plug for our new *Conscious Leadership* book. I couldn’t resist a quick pic of the book on display at my local Whole Foods Market in Boulder.
