Social Liberal

and an...

Economic Liberal
(18% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Socialist


You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.

loc: (68, -119)
modscore: (11, 41)
raw: (1538)

I'm not a big fan of these kinds of tests, mainly because I'm a lot more nuanced depending on the subject.

I would never vote for a socialist-leaning party (and the Democrats are certainly the furthest from that when you look at the NDP in Canada).

Why wouldn't you vote for a socialist-leaning party? They seem to be doing well in Europe.

Well, I can't vote in Europe, so I have no opinions on how good socialist-leaning parties are there.

However, the Green Party in the U.S. comes off as nutty, even if well-intentioned. I'm also not opposed to capitalism. I just think that, when it comes to laws, that people should come first, not corporate profits. When you have tax incentives and credits involved, we're not talking simple "supply and demand" anymore. The government clearly encourages and discourages corporate behaviors. Right now, the government certainly seems to be encouraging outsourcing, cutting wages and benefits, and greed at the expense of long-term growth. For example, why the hell would oil companies want to invest in alternative energy when they're making record profits in oil and have no legal compulsion to do so?

What I'm talking about used to be within the realm of the Democratic Party. Too bad they're too interested in being Republican-lite these days.

Here's my thing about capitalism:
Of course the idea of free enterprise and enterpeunership sound wonderful and inspiring, the true result of a free marked is ultimately a market controlled by very few large corporations. A few hundred years ago, Marx predicted this would happen. Competition eventually leads to the successful businesses swallowing the rest. At the end of the day, only one or two entities will own everything from energy resources to mass media (GE?).
I want society to inspire people to work, to be creative; however, rather than it be for the good of a few, it should be for the good of all. And, I don't believe this is a pie in the sky philosophy. From the moment Americans enter the educational world, we are bombarded with capitalist, individualistic propaganda. Think about your math problems, ie. you work very hard painting a fence and earn $2, then you spend $1.50 on ice cream; how much money do you have left?
Is that no capitalism and consumerism at it's most basic level? It is telling the child that they are supposed to work hard and then spend most of their money on stuff.
If we were to indoctrinate the youth with a socialist philosophy, our society would be a lot better off.
