The Extremes – Haidt

Nazis and Fascists fill out the Moral Foundations of In Group Loyalty, Authority/Dominance and Sanctity (the Nation is sacralised) and have no sense of either of the Freedoms or either notion of Fairness, and famously light on avoiding Care/Harm.

The Far left Communist and Trotskyists famously valourize Fairness and redistribution.  Libertarians demand Freedom as a moral claim and have little bit of reverse dominance in their soul.  The oddity of Communitarianism is explicable in Haidtian terms and then we have the Anarchists, a special subset of the left – moral purpose is the resistance of Authority.
