Erm. Yeah. I guess I must have made a mistake somewhere.

Ant.


Fascist - You believe that an alliance of monopolistic corporations and oppressive government should cooperate to lord it over the population with an efficient iron fist. Your historical role model is Adolf Hitler.

That's hilarious, Ant.

Yesterday I was just clicking around on random answers without reading the questions because I was bored, and my jaw nearly hit the ground when Hitler showed up. Of all people, I never thought it would be you.

Hehe. My father always used to say that I was a fascist in a socialist's clothing, if you can follow that. (Until yesterday, I never could). They had Wagner's 'Die Walkure' on BBC2 yesterday, and I found myself listening intently. What could this all mean?

Fascism and socialism are but two sides of the state control coin.

Socialist - You believe the free market can be beneficial, but that a large and powerful state is necessary to redistribute the wealth of the top classes to those of the bottom. You also think that basic utilities and trasportation should be publicly owned. Your historical role model is Eugene Debs.

No socialism is where the state has increased control over the economy and that by definition creates control over peoples individual choice, it is a very soft forrm of authoritarianism.

Ant.
I have come to realize why you find the "fascist" slur offensive on FYM.

Republican - You believe that the free market will take care of most things, but that the government should be there with moderate taxation to provide for national defense and enforcing morality. Your historical role model is Ronald Reagan.


Now tell me ..if this is GOOD or BAD


I dont think govt should ENFORCE MORALITY

Yo Chomsky!

I´m not anarcho however. I´m not opposed to the state per se, but opposed to borders. I think the state should perform a regulating function towards economy, but not towards its citizens. Corporate control yes, private control nope. I may add that environmental issues are very important.
this looks OK to me
