Where on the political spectrum are you?

You said spectrum, so I was going to be a smartbutt and say violet. But then I clicked your link and saw things were color coded.

 

It's getting harder and harder to be irreverent anymore.

I hate questions like, "A significant advantage of a one-party state is that it avoids all the arguments that delay progress in a democratic political system." Yes, I do realize that that's a distinct advantage for our government...but it's not an advantage that I necessarily want a ruling elite to have. Or, "Some people are naturally unlucky." I agree with this because, yes, people do get lucky and unlucky in life...but what is the question actually asking here, because I feel like it's asking whether I believe luck is some sort of inherent trait in people or some other such silly superstitions. Bah. I also hated that wasn't any neutral options for some questions...

 

Anyways, I got Economic Left/Right -4.88, Social Libertarian Authoritarian -3.9...but in reality, I think I should be a little closer to center because of how I was forced to answer sometimes.

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Yeah, some questions (and that one in particular) is poorly done.

But it still gives us some idea I think

Libertarian right. Good for bringing in big profits and not letting planet geeks get in the way of money.

 

 

EDIT: Also, some of the questions were idiotic. My opinion on Astrology has no bearing on anything.

Here a question that I find very interesting: "Everybody by his abilities, everyone according to his needs". This is from Marx if I am not mistaken. What do you think of it? Purley philosophical I mean...

'Broad shoulders bear the heavy burden' and all that - in theory a sympathetic idea, in practicality - well harder to 'enforce'.

 

In a Eudomenia or cornucopian / post-materiel world however - sure.. When resources are only limited by our ambition, then abilities will dictate our needs.

I would have thought I'd be a bit more fascist.

It's trash. Terrible idea.

I like it. It will never work, but my personal utopia is Marxist communist. ;) Edited by Ben No.3

Pretty close to centre

The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.

I guess if you said it meant stuff you got extra crazy points
