Cats and Politics

edited August 2018 in Chat

Can category theory or at least some of the lessons it teaches be used to understand politics?

Mr. Baez has made the analogy between left-right adjoints and liberal-conservative. Could certain issues in politics be seen as giving an approximation to an inverse, and the political divide comes from the two created opposing adjoints?

For instance, suggesting that a social issue be solved at an individual basis versus being solved at a community level feels very adjointy.

I'm curious what other people have to think.
