Left of Center - liberal debauchery at its best

fellow comrades,

i thought this might be a good way for some of us lefties to get to know each other a little better (and to escape those damn "ask ..." threads).

here's how we play:

1) take the political compass test

2) post your results

3) indicate your preferred label (american democrat, liberal, democratic socialist, etc.)

4) talk amongst yourselves



please, allow me to go first-

Economic Left/Right: -8.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.69

i consider myself a libertarian socialist or...*gasp*
communist, if you you've learned to overlook the stereotypical connotations of the word.

next...

Forgot to do the numbers. I'm -4 something on bost economic/left/Right and Social Libertarian/Authoritarian, which apparently puts me right smack in the middle of Gandhi and the Dalai Lama Who would have guessed?

Don't know exactly what I would call myself. Socialist with libertarian learnings, I guess. 'Cepting I'm too much of a loner. Labels are too complicated. Sigh.

yes, i agree that labels sometimes aren't the best. but i figured for the purposes of this thread a little labeling was in order.

Right in the same general area as Ghandi, the Dalai Lama, and Nelson Mandela - in good company. Exact opposite location of Bush. That's completely 100% accurate.

I call myself a heart-bleeding, tree-hugging, ultra-liberal.

Milton Friedman is the only one I'm even close to. I really don't know how I would label or describe myself here to be honest. I mean, I know where I stand on the issues that got me those results, but not what label that would give me.

I usually describe myself as bleeding heart lib (and my family calls me a "tree-hugger" ) but I guess not.
