    Where do you fit in the political spectrum?

    Discussion started by villain - Apr 20, 2005

    Here's one way to test your political beliefs... Here try it out:

    http://www.moral-politics.com/xpolitics.aspx?menu=Home

    This was my score. I mean look I'm almost off the chart left! lol:

    [​IMG]
    Your Score

    Your scored -7.5 on the Moral Order axis and 2 on the Moral Rules axis.

    Matches

    The following items best match your score:

    1. System: Socialism
    2. Variation: Moral Socialism
    3. Ideologies: Libertarian Socialism
    4. US Parties: No match.
    5. Presidents: Jimmy Carter (82.18%)
    6. 2004 Election Candidates: Ralph Nader (92.03%), John Kerry (73.39%), George W. Bush (36.69%)

    Statistics

    Of the 72551 people who took the test:

    1. 0.2% had the same score as you.
    2. 12.7% were above you on the chart.
    3. 74.8% were below you on the chart.
    4. 98.2% were to your right on the chart.
    5. 0.4% were to your left on the chart.


    I don't like being called a socialist, but I guess it's calling me that because I feel people have a higher responsibility to the Earth, and we should help those left unfortunate. I guess I am kind of a socialist if that's what it means... to feel a duty towards society. Hmm... Actually here is the definition it gives for Libertarian Socialism (Which is my ideology according to this):
    Libertarian Socialism is an extreme form of Moral Socialism.

    It is a political philosophy dedicated to opposing what its advocates regard as illegitimate forms of authority and social hierarchy [NonConformance], most famously the institution of government.

    It has gone by various names: libertarian communism, anarcho-communism, left-anarchism, and, most commonly, anarchism.

    Libertarian socialists therefore believe in the abolition of private property [InterDependence] in the means of production and abolition of the state as an unnecessary and harmful institution [NonConformance].

    Edited from Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia.

    Ok... so it's got anarchism in it. I can deal with that. I guess it is pretty accurate.


    Here is the overview for all respondents:

    I'd taken a test just like this around a year ago, I'm still roughly around the same spot. The one I'd taken would compare your standing with former world leaders and historical figures though, that was fun.

    Here's a short one...

    http://www.theadvocates.org/

    Surprise surprise... I'm a liberal...

    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 80%.
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 40%.

    LIBERALS usually embrace freedom of choice in personal

    matters, but tend to support significant government control of the

    economy. They generally support a government-funded "safety net"
    to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation

    of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations,

    defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action

    to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles.

    Your a "paleoconservative" angelofdeath? What does that mean? You want to take it back to the paleolithic age? Some kind of extreme conservatism? Go to war with neanderthals that look different than you, and club women over the head and drag them back to your cave? lol

    Nah... I'm not a liberal. I'm an anarchist. Though I don't know why it says anarchists want to abolish private property... I don't want to abolish private property. I don't think private property should be monopolized but I don't think it should be abolished either.

    Hmm... maybe I'm a moderate. I bet if I lived in a different country my attitude towards politics would change. I'm probably such an anarchist here because the US tends to lean too far to the right and be too capitalistic. A similar phenomenon is happening in the UK... check it out...

    As you see.... I'm just trying to restore balance and order to the world.
