let's do this shit
Hitler was a great man tbh
Every Muslim I've met in my country (US) / state (ME) has been a kind and pleasant person. But I am wary of foreign Muslims. Too many crazy extremists out there. It doesn't even seem like the same religion, not at all. So asking if I'm pro-Islam depends on what kind of Islam we're talking about. I don't consider myself a SJW.
It's a social contract. Socialism only works if the majority of people are willing to do their fair share. It is not necessarily practical, but is an ideal to strive for.
Is there something wrong with a nation and its people owning the industries and utilities necessary for everyday functions? There is no reason for a nation or its people to have their wealth plundered by globalists.
Basically it means heavy investment in public services and loads of regulation of private businesses to ensure workers rights, hence socialism. The Libertarian part is stressing individual rights, legalise drugs, strong protection for free speech, keeping the government out of all marriages, and unlike many socialists I'm a supporter of people's right to own property.
Just curious, when it says state socialism, does that mean like one-party government? I'm a democratic socialist, but I'd rather live in a shitty capitalist state with the right to vote than some USSR shit.
Maybe your opinions will change in the many years it take for you to be of voting age
Are there not more important reasons in life to create than just for greed? Surely being recognized for curing a disease or making the lives of others much better should be enough.
I believe in teaching our children our religion and traditions, but also letting them know at a certain age that its a tradition, and scientific study of the world gives us a more accurate story, (ie evolution, etc) i don't think people should be forced to cater to people (if you don't wanna bake wedding cakes for gays, you should not be forced) but I also don't believe in making it illegal........and even though I don't believe in encouraging and shoving down our throats gay acceptance and scientific bending of gender studies, but i also love chicks with dicks. I hate communism and reassignment of wealth, but certain things like infrastructure and public education should be strongly funded... i'm a complicated guy
>certain things like infrastructure and public education should be strongly funded
Just wondering how you feel about single-payer healthcare? I find it weird that USA politicians decided education is more important than healthcare. Also Thatcher was really neo-liberal and she kept the NHS around.
I was making a joke about the text formatting, but thank you nonetheless. You're a cool guy.

Of course it is impractical today. Creating that kind of society would take a slow shift, over a time period much longer than a human lifespan.
If people are willing to think-forward, it is not impossible to attain.
if it were a true, all pays, all benefits system, then yes, but it has a lot of downfalls and in our current culture we have too many niggers of all colors fucking shit up (what we got in the US now is just a law that forces you to pic an insurance company so they know they can jack up prices so long as the work together, and a welfare state that is taken advantage of by worthless people)
Surprisingly progressive thread
No, the other way around. That is an older version. I'm guessing they changed it to seem less biased. I took it again to see if they changed any questions but it didn't seem that way to me. I got similar results.
This I agree with, I get called 'racist' all the time because I don't think immigrants should use the NHS unless they've paid in enough.
With regards to 'only those who pay', yeah people who've been unemployed for a really long time for no reason piss me off, I wish we could deny them access to public services. But people who are ill/disabled and can't work for valid reasons, they shouldn't be denied access I don't think.
And I think it should be all children, kids aren't to blame for how shitty and/or lazy their parents might be.
Still a surprising amount of traditionalists though. What's up with you guys? Are you religious and/or don't care for science and logic? I don't understand what value there is in religion and general tradition beyond intracultural bonding.
Based OP, but even out your statist leanings.
I do see why some traditions can help keep us close together. Besides most holidays like Christmas, Halloween and NYE are just excuses to get drunk once you're old enough, and that's always fun.
People who are so wedded to tradition that they try and deny other people rights or hold on to silly ideas like that the world is only thousands of years old, that's taking it too far.
Being a traditionalist hardly means you're against "science and logic." It's a false dichotomy.
If you value cultural mores according to this test it means that you're against "progress." But what is progress? There are certainly fringe groups like the Amish who basically abstain from all technology, but your average Christian wouldn't go without their smart phone any more than anyone else.
Generally, having an objection to things like same-sex marriage in this test will knock your progress down, or genetic engineering, or not considering global warming to be the biggest threat we face.
"Progressive" people certainly have their own objections when it comes to ethics in science, it's why every product in your house boasts it wasn't tested on animals. Vivisection is something that has greatly benefited medical science, and likely would continue to do so if it was still practiced. But I doubt hardly anyone would regard it as ethical. But it's okay to hold these views and still be "progressive."
To take pride in your own culture, in the achievements of your forefathers, to use that to inspire yourself to work harder and do better because the men before you did so much with so little. I don't see anything wrong with that. On the contrary I think the greater evil is how easily so many people seem to discard it.
"It's not modern. Your traditions are bigoted. It's 2017!" is a poor argument to me. All these people seem to do are engage in self-hate and try to spread that feeling to others so they can push their agendas. I for one won't buy into it.
Socialist dictatorships never work, for the same reason capitalist dictatorships don't in the long run, take away people's right to vote and corruption runs rampant. Some of the Latin American 'pink tide' countries did see huge improvements in living standards. Uruguay is doing pretty awesome. Even Venezuela saw some improvements in access to healthcare and education, before Chavez started being a cunt and oil prices plummeted.
Holy shit 8values is cancer , fascism directly contradicts capitalism, they're just using fascism as a colloquial for right wing authoritarianism.
This test a shit
>economic axis: Capitalist
A bit too capitalist for me, but still overall i support you in many ways.
>diplomatic axis: Nationalist
holy shit man, I would be with you but thats pretty god dam nationalistic.
>civil axis: statist
Meh, i got centrist but support the state overall.
>societal axis: Reactionary
God damn dude
In Mike Pence's happy sunshine gay reformation school
Thanks for the thought-out reply. When I think of "progress" I generally think of increasing general human understanding of the world we live in, and using that information to better the lives of both humans and other living organisms when compatible (i.e. fuck pathogens and parasites, but don't poach for "traditional" placebo medicines and generally preserve biodiversity). In this way I do agree with taking pride in prior achievements. I think of humanity as building upon the past to attempt to reach an ideal, and tradition can either help or hinder that. But when I think of people favoring tradition I think of people favoring it BECAUSE it's traditional, including both the beneficial and detrimental traditions, which I disagree with. I also think climate change is a highly significant problem because of its relative permanence, whereas more human-centric issues are relatively temporary, as laws, policies, and sometimes even cultures can change rapidly. But climate change cannot be reversed on any foreseeable timescale and is already causing damage to both humans and other organisms.
Well shit I thought I was more to the right turns out I fucking socialist

My nigga me too! democratic socialism
If you aren't a centrist, you are a subhuman.
Seems like centrist lead the pack numbers wise.. The silent majority?!?!
basically what everyone who's not completely brainwashed by an ideology is
> do this test.
> come out nearly 50/50 on everything.
> phoneposting so can't prove.
Any political fencebabbys wanna scream at me about MUH US VS THEM?
Cuz as far as I'm concerned it's not us vs them. It's me vs the world.
>It is better to maintain a balanced budget than to ensure welfare for all citizens
What bullshit is this? If your goverment is spending too much on the military, then this statement is a joke.
>Spending too much on military
People have been executed for less
Some people believe that preservation is more important than justification. It's the same principle that has one nation going nuclear in the face of immiment defeat, the idea being that any alternative is preferable to death.
In this scenario death is personified by economic depression, and some people think that nuking the poors is preferable to the state dying out from trying to feed and shelter said poors.
It's really not that hard to comprehend anon. Some humans believe they're apes, and that morality only exists as a consequence of afluence, to be abandoned the moment said afluence is no longer to hand. If you're old enough to post on this site you should have already been exposed to this philosophy at least once or twice.
Meh, it is mostly accurate. I'll give it that.
>fascism directly contradicts capitalism, they're just using fascism as a colloquial for right wing authoritarianism.
What? Do you even know what the definition of fascism is? Oh, I get it, you're politically incorrect.
but then again, living under a centrist govt. prolly help my perspective.
We buddies with everyone, homes.
Probably whether you think markets should have any sway at all/have seen enough government operations in your life to know that you have to leave some amount of profit motive in society if you want it to function smoothly.
Everyone that creates anything new and innovative is either paid fucking shit, or works in a university and is doing the work as a research student or under public employment. Look at IT boom
Just because i am a liberal doesn't mean i suck immigrant cock
The finnish government that is Socio-capitalist, have beneficial R&D programs in the health care, such as stemcells, Genetical research on ATP1A3 genes, and new ways to combat heart diseases
All paid by the population, and the allocation of resources is done with the involvement of big data so on other projects it much more efficient
Dang I'm even...
Well I'm always perfectly middle ground on everything else so this doesn't come as much of a surprise.
Any other neutralfags up in here?
Eh. I don't feel that questionnaires of this sort can properly read people in the middle, but it isnt bad.
is this good?
>build a cyberwall and make the captchas pay for it.
Idk how I got Neo-Liberal since I oppose pretty much all taxes.
Private companies would still be allowed to operate, but my ideal policy would be a 1:12 law (highest earners in a company couldn't earn more than 12 times what the lowest paid employee made)
to my ears it sounds like an insult
Hanna Montana would be proud
