Personal Political Compass...

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the compilation.

 

And I do think the poll being a British poll, as was pointed out early, has a great influence on where the "center" lies in the graph. It would have to, if you know how this stuff works.

 

If it's based on British politics, then it is badly done. From what I know of political thought and ideology, plus the ideological norm in different countries, most of our posters here should be on the right of that spectrum, not the left (Americans being generally more right wing than the UK). 

 

The only thing I am getting from this is that it is really quite heavily left-biased with numerous leading questions. That said, gamers do tend to be of a more liberal demographic so that trend too dilutes the results here.

i am very anti-Authoritarian...but i rebel against both Corporate as well as Governmental "control"....and since i see the U.S. as a "soft fascist police state" at this point in HIstory, there's a lot i don't like...

 

you and i differ in our determination of where the "oppression" is coming from, and how to look at/determine the baseline...and how to repair the Damage

to put it simply I don't trust any of the bastids

oppression is coming from those in pwr who wish to remove my ability for self determination. My freedom of choice.etc... sadly this oppression comes from both parties.

To fix it you must starve the beast. You have to remove the power from the center and distribute it as locally as possible. You must make an effort to not send in every taxable penny you can. Lastly you have to stop asking them to fix issues not directly spelled out in the constitution.

That must mean that I have to be responsible and self reliant.


Know me and fear me. My embrace is for all and is patient but sure. The dead can always find you. My hand is everywhere - there is no door I cannot pass, nor guardian who can withstand me.

As a veteran, it's a little confusing to myself that I will directly end a life for a country that I personally don't like sometimes and treats veterans like heroic second class citizens.

I got -2, -1.98.  Took one years ago that was actually aimed toward US values and it said I was a Capitalist Anarchist.  That one is probably closer to truth.

 

Death penalty?  As it stands, I am against it. In the old days when you were hung the day after the verdict, it was done right.

 

And if you want to make a new law to control gun ownership, make it so everyone HAS to be armed.  As Heinlein said, an armed society is a polite society.  

Also, if everyone was armed, there would no longer be crowded prisons and a lot fewer people on death row.

 

Our government is too large.  It is out of control.  Revolution is not far off. 

 

One final thought:  give a man a fish and he will vote Democrat.  Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

And some of us women have thanked the All Father for that.......just sayin


Maybe it not about the happy ending. Maybe it's about the story.

7.63 Right

-8.42 Libertarian

 

I'm sure Doc is surprised.

 

I'm surprised there are so many left wingers for Crowfall when Darkfail had the strongest libertarian circle jerk I've seen on a gaming forum. I figured the two would draw the same audience.

 

On Hillbilly's quiz

 

Collectivism score: -100%
Authoritarianism score: -83%
Internationalism score: -100%
Tribalism score: 33%
Liberalism score: 67%
