I can see why you wouldn’t want to give them any ammunition to use against you, but wouldn’t it be a valid strategy to post the link and allow us to flood the fuckers with a load of responses advocating acceptance and validity.
But, like I’ve said before, I don’t think you can replace the authoritarian-freedom axis with a culture war one, because there are some people who are anti-traditionalist and still very authoritarian about it, or at least they would be if we gave them a sniff of actual power.
Oh, and since we’re doing the other two as well, here they are:
And LeftValues has me as a Market Anarchist, which just feels wrong. Last time I got my second place result (Centralist Marxism) which seems closer, but is really just saying “Yes, you’re left wing, but we’re having trouble placing you with the other stuff”, which is probably accurate. I’m awkward by nature.
I think Health Care plays a big part of it (especially now!), in that even among the “I don’t trust the govvermint” types, anyone without extreme wealth is very cautious about what for-profit changes and privatization that they consider allowable. It also helps living close to the HC nightmare that is the US (especially now! Sorry, friends, but ya are) to know how bad it is.
Which means that they try to slide it in under the table as “increased access” and “greater choice” but enough of us suspiciously asking “and how were you going to do that?” can put the brakes on that, too.
Americans won’t trust the government with their information, but somehow expect them not to cheat (He says he’ll increase access and give us more money in our pockets). Canadians will trust the government with information, but figure every single one of them is weaselly, so it’s important to know exactly how and whom is actually going to benefit, here.
We also have the advantage of being able to say “Do you really want to fuck with us? Ask the Progressive Conservative Party how well that went.” (Spoiler: horribly for them, and arguably worse for us, because we ended up with the Reform Party and then the Conservatives who keep drifting ever rightwards. It still works as a threat, though, because it took decades and no one wants that happening to them.).
Even if I did, the answers don’t give results based on reality. They have open borders as a right wing policy and militarism as a left wing policy for example. So they appear to be an ayn-cap as well as a TERF, they believe that socialism is when the government does things and an-com does not exist.
Maybe I will put the link back up later, it’s not like it is the worst political compass quiz I have seen recently.
So it says I’m a democratic socialist, with a 96% Centrist Marxism second.
Living in the US where the only choices are D and R, I honestly don’t know whether this matches which party I’d support given the option
