I was also a bit disturbed by the words "elite" and "ideological", which
have a variety of connotations.

- I like the slider spectrums per se, so I wonder if these words can
simply be replaced with synonym words.

- But! I loooove the sentences that you've come up with a lot too :) So
for me, both representations should exist. The sentences make the
sliders clearer, they explain, they add value.

As intrigeri said however, they might be more at home on a "style guide"
