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 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.”
