Test for which European political ideology you are closest to
Description from the site of the test:

Quote:Most political quizzes are geared to an American audience. ''Liberal'' means left, ''Conservative'' means right, and a whole range of European positions don't exist. This selector is intended to rank political philosophies and their subsections for you in European terms.
In order for this quiz to work properly, answer with the longer term and general principles in mind.
In other words, if you believe in the abolition of the private sector, answer on that basis even if you have a thousand-year timescale in mind! For those who wish to know my bias, I came out as a ''social liberal''.

Not surprisingly to me, I got social liberal on the test. That's how I would self-identify politically. In short, I like capitalism and the market economy, I love free trade and entrepreneurship, but I also think the government should guarantee a minimum standard of living for everyone in society. On social matters I am pretty much libertarian.

A note to Americans: In Europe the term "liberal" has retained its classical meaning in economic matters, which laissez-faire (more or less). In other words, to call Chomsky or Che Guevara liberals or extreme liberals might sound correct in the US, but sounds absurd to Europeans.

"Examine the religious principles, which have, in fact, prevailed in the world. You will scarcely be persuaded, that they are any thing but sick men's dreams." - David Hume

Social Liberal / Social Democrat

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

RE: Test for which European political ideology you are closest to
The test is clearly flawed, it said I was an anarcho-communist, when I have claimed anarcho-syndicalism for several years now. I have been interested in this notion of politics all the way back to when I started reading about the IWW some 45 years ago.

I will admit that I did not answer one or more questions correctly because the machinery decided I was anti immigration and I am not. It also decided I was a stateist and I am not. I do think that the greater whole or if you demand state has certain practical and social responsibilities. That is somewhat contrary to the idea of a stateless society which anarcho implies. I do accept there are currently and will remain for some time the need of a state which is whole different idea.

Damn young whippersnapper. Show some respect. Angry

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Logica Humano, damn straight I am old. I met 4 old friends yesterday, one of whom I have known for some 54 years one for 50 years and the other two for about 48 years. There were a lot of complaints about it being hell getting old.

Age does not command respect. The person's actions do.

Getting old is an action.













Boom bitch.
