Econ Left/Right-1.81
Social Lib/Auth-0.00

Interesting.

I really liked how the website explained about Hitler and the accusation he was some right winger. His economic policies were pretty Keynesian--Let's see:Hitler killed millions, pretty Keynsian in economics, authoritarian. Stalin: killed millions, authoritarian, extreme left in economics. Not a whole lot of difference.

corporatism (a major characteristic of fascism) is generally considered to be a reactionary or right-wing economic model. authoritarian/totalitarian control is independent of the economic scale.

I might be less right wing than I think! Mostly, it's because I don't want to impose or be imposed on which probably makes me more libertarian than authoritarian, although I do hate seeing Christian traditions stripped away in favor of secularism.

Let me add that I ended up somewhere in between Blair & Bush, and I thought I was to the right of Bush!

-1.75, -1.38

Me and my hubby are quite far apart it seems
I guess this disqualifies me from the "right wing terrorists" that are mentioned in FYM

The problem with "Christian traditions" being a part of government is that by doing that you (as a Christian) are imposing your specific religious beliefs on me, whereas a secular government promotes no religious belief, which allows you, me, and everyone else to pick our own religious or non religious beliefs. That way you get to keep your Christian traditions in your life and I get to keep those same traditions out of my life. So we can both be happy.

Conceptually I totally agree, but I believe that government is doing more to endorse Atheism (also a religious belief in my opinion) which does not reflect the will of the people, but of the few.

When we have more time, we can debate this one later It's always worthy of a thread! But let me ease back into FYM before the flames get higher
