    The chart might (might) just cover a fair stretch of contemporary conservatism, but there are significant gaps and conflations. E.g., the classic Buckley conservatives aren't necessarily neocons or theocons, and I don't really see another place for them, similarly for the Claremont Review crowd, or for the Alan Bloom "Great Books" conservatives or even many of the Constitutional 'originalists' (a group that does not, IMO, include Scalia, who might possibly find a home with the theocons). The Austrian economists are often lumped with the libertarians, but there are significant differences (many of the Austrians would be libertarian, but not all of the libertarians--e.g. the Friedmanites-- would embrace the Austrians).
