political compass time

Recommended Posts

I get +50 hitler points for agreeing somewhat with

People with serious inheritable disabilities should not be allowed to reproduce.

It's not that they shouldn't be allowed to reproduce, but rather I would prefer if more chose not to, depending on things. And here we go eugenics debate etc.

 

There are no savage and civilised peoples; there are only different cultures.

I think last time I said somewhat agree, this time I said somewhat disagree.

 

And then there are some facts that they judge me based on:

A significant advantage of a one-party state is that it avoids all the arguments that delay progress in a democratic political system.

 

Guessing I'm going to end up a bit more socially right-wing than last time.

 

And I got: 7.75 economic left, 4.36 social libertarian. About what I expected.

This is obviously true. Anyone who doesn't strongly agree with this is dumb.

Yeah you can, "progress", seriously? If modern democracy teaches us anything is that quick and decisive actions are usually the most bullshit ones.

I wonder how much more liberal I would get if I answered everything else the same and just changed the eugenics question

There should be a separate scale with how much you want to add asterisks to every single answer you give to these things.

I'm pretty sure that half my becoming more economically left is due to me interpreting questions differently (as practical rather than ideological) but yeah~

In general I'm a big fan of breeding better humans, the specifics are unclear.

Continues to be true. Generally it seems like something we should be doing. Specifically I'm not sure how.

Last year I thought wouldn't it be great if the default was not having kids and you had to make a conscious decision to have one, and yes I still think that would be great

Dave is very correct on that, and it really baffles me that people consider that some sort of creepy dystopian fascist political position. Obviously it would have to be non-invasive and no negative side effects, but if we could just magically flip a switch and everyone is default infertile until they specifically want to be, I think that would be fantastic.

okay so I checked the political compass thread from 2008 to see my score and I posted this:

 

 

n conclusion, this test is dumb because it assumes that my personal opinions inform my opinion of what the government should and should not be able to do. I do believe that women should first and foremost raise their children, but that doesn't mean that I think the government needs to enforce that.

 

 

GUYS WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME I WAS LITERALLY A MISOGYNIST IN 2008 :ohdear:

Also perhaps we didn't notice because the point you were making with a terrible example, i.e. thinking something is bad != thinking something should be illegal, was kinda important????

Dave, I think the IQ question is this one:
