p.s. The reason this is a *transpartisan* map is that the entire political spectrum can agree that the five ambition/resource conflicts exist, and that sets up the rest of the "map". Notice that this approach completely -- and naturally -- eliminates the "left / right" dividing line while still mapping the issues that define both sides.
