My own results


Although a quick look at the gathered statistics shows that I'm actually further right than average, no surprise there lol. I'm pretty sure that my very strong opinions on abortion kept me from being considered further libertarian.



I'm more than a bit shocked to find out that I was genuinely more non interventionalist than average.



Nothing to comment on here.

    It still somewhat amazes me to see how interested in politics DLK seems to be, all the while showing no signs of one day making it his career.

    What the fuck am I supposed to posting about then? The Nutshack? All I know is that most people have at least a passing a influence in politics but instead we just get the same repetitive bitching whenever I post anything remotely related to politics. This is just like when Zicit and EC were using every bullshit argument to keep me from posting about Coraabia when they could have just ignored it but no, we had to stretch a bunch of insignificant posts about an insignificant game into an argument that was never solved even when moderators were plainly saying that I was in the right to use Activity for what it was meant for and it only died because Coraabia itself did and I still cry to this day that that little gem had to drown amid all the pay2win bullshit on Kongregate.

    I dunno, politics are a very big deal right now. I think it's perfectly understandable to want to discuss them in a time when controversies pop up all the time from every side. Besides, it's not like politics are a new discussion topic. The elections have been discussed on the forum for almost a year at this point, and only started to become a controversial topic when a disliked candidate won. Coincidence? I think not. :P

    Yes, but for a while nobody had any issues with the discussion of politics on the forum. It was only when Trump won that CWS and RiR started complaining.

    Okay, first of all? Chill, dude. It must be as annoying for you to be called on doing several political posts as for some people to end up seeing them so often.
    "Is ignoring them that hard", you might ask yourself. Well, maybe it is. Curiosity can easily get the best of you, and when it does, disappointment follows.
    But that's beside the point.

    I thought you were getting at something before you mentioned Coraabia. So you want to discuss politics. Okay, is that out of boredom? Spite? Curiosity?
    Don't get me wrong, I don't mind if you're making serious or satirical posts, about politics or an octopus. It's just that you always look very interested on it, while not looking interested enough. Does that make sense?

    No, of course it doesn't. Carry on. I don't think I can make myself clear now, and it's not like I have a problem with all this anyway.

    That's the thing. It never was a bad time to discuss anything that major. Making a fuss because of controversies is to be expected, sure. It would be weird if nobody said a thing. But aren't people getting their tits in a twist just because Trump won?
    Oh, wait, we were trying to avoid mentioning his name, weren't we?
    Um... Stump. I meant stump. Tree stump. Been playing lots of Stardew Valley recently and them stumps are perfect for farming hardwood.

    What I mean is, it's great that people want to talk about the political universe. Anything that prevents the population from becoming a horde of useful idiots, or something along those lines.
    But if the only reason we're doing it is because of who won the elections, does it make a difference? Are we even going deep enough? Isn't that arguing for the sake of arguing?
    Look at this thread. It's meant to be about the users' political personalities, and we're treading on "shallow discussions territory" already.

    Mm, should stop here. I always manage to derail even when I try not to.

    On-topic time:
    So I noticed this one is directed at the US citizens.
    Not that people from other countries can't get accurate results. Sure can, but it might be a little off compared to someone from the US.



    Is it just me or is my graph larger than the others?
    Eh, must be the zoom.

    So, I'm actually .02 to the right. I'm glad, really, because all this left and right crapbag always mean different things depending on whom you ask. When and where too.
    For instance, some may argue that authoritarianism is exclusively right-wing and libertarianism left, but I digress.
    Speaking of which, yay for liberty? That is probably very accurate, but I don't like to think of me as someone so close to the middle ground.
    Oh well. Can't have all you want.



    Now this one might give the wrong idea. I'm not pro-war, but I ain't exactly against it either. Outside military intervention was the kicker. War is a delicate murder cake that must be baked between the two (or more) responsible parties, and those alone.
    If one is getting outside help, any possible positive result that come out of it is lost. (An example? A revolution aided by an outside power removes one dictator to put another. Just this time, the big man is pulling the strings from afar.)
    At best, the problem just shift hands. At worst, the death toll gets so high you stop counting the bodies in units and start using tons. Sure, some wars are nothing but stupid, but no one has the right to play God.



    I'm surprised this one isn't directly correlated to the autho-liber scale. Freedom of expression is a strange thing.

    I believe at least 50% of the people posting their results have been goofing around and been unserious.

    In my opinion;
    The left side is made up of socialists(like myself) and communists("extreme leftists" as I like to call them), whilst the right side are conservatists(stupid people who doesn't like changes) and capitalists(Ermegerd it's basicly rich people who want to get more rich).
    Liberalism is about letting the people choose everything, but this requires educated people (and I think it's unfair that in America the election system is based on the people being "uneducated"). Authoritarianism, well you get the deal. One person decides everything.

    DISCLAIMER: If anyone got offended I'm sorry(Suggoku gomen ne.) please don't get offended.
    This is only my opinions and my understanding of the political system in the world.
