Re: The Political Compass

Here is mine.

To me it seems the poll is somewhat dated as debate on some of the topics has moved on.

Also, there are questions that you can answer a certain way for diametrally opposite reasons.

Seeing we all think the same way, why do political discussions get so heated?

Maybe we should start our own party? The EF party?

Who would we put up as Dictator for life? Probably let the mods fight it out among themselves.

No, it's just because all the Hilary supporters are "blue" and are ashamed to show their result!

A triumvirate would be better. Phos, Bicycle, and Sandgrounder would be my suggestion.

It makes me wonder if we're similar because we are prepared to debate. Perhaps people who are more Authoritarian don't feel the urge to share their views and consider those of others.

ehhh, I think this "we, togetherness" thing makes people stupid, makes me cringe and is against my principles.

I must be on the bottom most right corner of that quadrant.

Didn't you say you root for Trump? Considering that I find your position here odd as well.

I'd be interested to see if you actually are. I don't believe you would be.

But then, again, you're somewhat groundless with what you believe. You don't really believe, you want and feel.

Say a few positive things about Thatcher!
