I thought you were passionately anti-drugs.

I also laughed thinking of your response when I got to "In a civilised society, one must always have people above to be obeyed and people below to be commanded."

Meh. I mean, I don't like them but I doubt I'm going to go around telling people what to do these days.

I voted strongly disagree. I don't see what's so funny about what I voted for that statement?

I did, too. My thoughts are the same as Vlad's on that issue.

And I think if people have a serious drug problem, they should be in rehab, not in jail. Unless they committed a crime like murder or rape or something of that sort while under the influence of drugs. Then they should be in jail, but be convicted for the murder or rape, not the drug use.

You are by far the most left-leaning person I've ever come across, online or "in real life". I mean didn't you once say something like you dislike every government in the world? I get a caricature in my head, I laugh, don't take it personally.

Hilarious.
Yes that gay marriage stuff has moved me to the left. There was some nuance in the agree/disagree vs. strongly agree/disagree that might not be taken into account. If there were more questions about climate change and bailouts I think it would look a little different. I also wonder about the racism questions and who the test attributes that to.

Haha, yeah, my mistake. You're right.

I think it probably attributes that to Authoritarians

There's a FAQ on the site that I recommend reading before you take the test. It explains everything and why the questions are worded the way they are.

WTF?

I've actually had very good discussions with purpleoscar, particularly on matters of Canadian politics that you and most others don't care about. I don't appreciate your comment.

That's more like it!

Political test - The great site for testing and comparing your political alignments - free of charge and independent!

You are an Ordoliberal. 1 percent of the test participators are in the same category and 58 percent are more extremist than you.



 
Haha! F&*% you ecological extremists I'm going to eat some beef




Ordoliberalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Ordoliberalism is a German variant of neoliberalism that emphasises the need for the state to ensure that the free market produces results close to its theoretical potential.

Ordoliberal ideals (with modifications) drove the creation of the post-World War II German social market economy and its attendant Wirtschaftswunder. In the beginning, many Ordoliberals called themselves Neoliberals to separate themselves from old school classical liberalism. However, ordoliberals promoted the concept of the social market economy, and this concept promotes a strong role for the state with respect to the market, which is in many ways different from the ideas who are nowadays connected with the term neoliberalism.

...

Friedrich Hayek is also frequently classified as an ordoliberal

We fall into the same category.

Only 33% of people are more extreme than me. I don't view myself as that extreme.
