So far I've determined the importance of a given issue by the number of stories dealing with a specific issue, as well as the time span covered by the publication of said stories. The higher the number of stories, coupled with a longer lifespan of the issue (not the popularity of the story); this lifespan is measured in terms of a given issue being treated on several stories published in different years.
The following is the list I work with, but if you have other issues that should be included in it be sure to let me know about them.
1. Personal freedom
3. Economic control of government
5. Religious zealousness
Each of these recurring issues has been featured in more than one of the politically relevant sub genres of the previous post. There can also be a cross between these issues in a single story, therefore this list is not as clear cut as the sub-genres; I will expand on each of these issues in subsequent posts, but for now this enunciation is sufficient.
