Step 1: Take the Political Compass Test
Step 2: Reblog with
which political box your result falls in
what you consider your political beliefs to be
Step 3:???
Step 4: Profit!


I fall in anarcho-socialism, and that’s how I consider myself. :3

Ah, the political compass! Been years since I’ve done this.
I was given a score of -7.5, -8.1, which actually put me into anarcho-collectivism. I’m not entirely sure I agree with that assessment, given my primary issue with the political compass test has always been too many questions that are focused on agreeing or disagreeing on an issue when neither answer is how I’d answer with. In any event I’m just going to assume that I’m somewhere near the anarchy range when it comes to my social beliefs, which is deffo true, and leave economics to be figured out later.

I get a different score every time because I do occasionally change my mind about things, but this time around I got a -2.75, -5.38, which, in addition to sounding like an eyeglasses prescription, puts me in the “libertarian socialism” box.
Which is probably about right?  My political beliefs come down to basically: “The government shouldn’t enforce morality, but it should protect people’s safety and basic needs.  Because those are… moral things to do.  Okay, the government should enforce my morality.”

- 3.38, -8.21, apparently I’m a syndicalist? Cool. 

-5.75, -5.69. Libertarian socialist.
I call myself  a New Dealer. I’m not an anarcho-socialist (or a libertarian socialist) because I think state power can be a force for good, albeit not necessarily the state as it currently exists.
Some of my answers would have been different if I regarded “there are good aspects of X” as meaning the same thing as “X is good.”

This is one of those posts that seems embarrassing, even though there’s no reason it should. And yet, I’ll go ahead.

When the deadline for enrolling for Obamacare ended last month, depending on who you asked, it was either a smashing success or a woeful failure. The reasoning for believing it to…

I guess I should post the picture of me with de Blasio.

good point conservative meme, calling scientifically accurate fetal models “extreme and unsettling tactics” is to shortchange the anti-abortion history of clinic bombings, patient and doctor harassment and the underhanded tactic of fake clinics.

Also, as I recall, there’s no evidence of any of the protestors planning to throw waste.

I don’t like mommy blogs. I didn’t like them when I was the target audience, I like them even less now. I don’t like the cute code names. I don’t like that fathers are usually portrayed as a sort of benevolent ghost hovering around mostly useless in the background. I don’t like that sharing…

womenagainstfeminism:

"I need feminism because my chicken mcnuggets are cold.”
"I need Jesus because my chicken mcnuggets are cold.”

Feminism often sounds like a religion. (Nothing against religion, I’m religious, but feminism is not honest about it.)

False analogy,…

If you replace some of the words in a sentence with different words, it will sound inane or fascist or bigoted or otherwise horrible.

I need to create a To-Do list for websites I want to check, and I could reuse it and update it every five minutes when I reopen the internet to check one site but instead end up checking all the sites.

Nazis and terrorists attacked the U.S. with guns and bombs and planes, not swords, and so have done less damage with swords than Roberts’s pen and Obamacare have done.
