The BioPolitics Grid is a bioethical and political analysis charting tool developed by bioethics journalist Alex Pearlman providing an overview of various positions.

The horizontal axis represents the traditional left-right spectrum with regards to contemporary western economic politics.

The vertical axis represents a variety of bioethical positions, from a bioliberal and typically transhumanist point of view towards the top, through to a bioconservative towards the bottom.

In April 2016, Zoltan Istvan and James Hughes debated a range of left vs right wing political issues from a transhumanist point of view creating the following overview of leftist technoprogressive (or Bioprogressive) view as espoused by Hughes vs a more technolibertarian (or bio-libertarian) position form Istvan.[1]

The latest iteration (image to be updated) no longer explicitly aligns transhumanism with the matrix, and makes the observation that Donald Trump's positions are currently unknown.
