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.
Agreed.

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.

Hilarious.
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.

Or maybe people prefer to debate the specific issues at hand and not worry about what political category the other person falls into. Probably a novel idea for you

Economic Left/Right: -6.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -8.62

Done this a few times over my time on the internet and I think I've remained in roughly the same position the last few times.

Hope this doesn't cause any problems with the conservative majority on this forum.

I'm not sure but I think this means I am a fascist.

Economic Left/Right: -0.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.92



I like the results of the first test that I posted better than the results of the second test that I posted, but I don't fully agree with either.

there's no need for this post. i wouldn't call purpleoscar the forum's punching bag, and if you think others are unjustly rude to him then you need to report these posts.
