Thats awesome. Havent seen that before.
I don't participate in political discussions at ATS because it is somewhat over run by extremists and paranoids.
And then a typical centrist-view to accompany it
Thanks for the compliment, I wouldn't know I was/am a centrist if not for this thread of yours.
Actually I was dumbfounded at my result
, but it does explain a lot of things. Why I feel politics is dirty yet I am a firm believer that a
country cannot progress without some form of government. While I trust myself to a responsible person, I don't trust others to be the same, there
bound to be lunatics out there. I believe in one rule applies all, but I recognise there are exceptions. I am pro life, I hate abortion, but I am
willing to bend my believe in certain cases. I am pro death, heinous criminals have to hang, but don't let prisoners over 60 rot in jail.
While I am clear in my thoughts and I am confident of telling right from wrong, I am not willing to share much because I don't believe people want to
or are capable of understanding. I have little faith in human beings, all I see is bickering over nothing most of the time. I am also weary and I
have contempt for clowns out there who would twist your beliefs and opinions.
They are all around ATS! Even in this thread, people are quick to
put Libertarian values down, without the slightest understanding of it.
Probably that's why I am more comfortable reading threads by a lot of ATS members like you, than contributing. This is not a suck up to a moderator,
all your threads are really interesting and of alternative views. Seriously, go look at all your threads, you don't take sides. In fact, a lot of
your threads are middle ground controversies, looking at things from another angle. You couldn't be doing it for points right?
I truly believe
you are a true centrist yourself. By the way, I thoroughly enjoy threads/posts, by Riley, Phage, Melatonin, AshleyD and of course yourself, to name a
I am a bit embarrass to say, I share 90% of your views in all your threads. It explains why both of us are down the middle of the Political Company
analysis. Only different is I don't subscribe to your believe of more freedom (relative to mine). Like I said, I just don't trust everyone to be
responsible human beings. Some people just need to be watch over, agree?
Anyway, everything is relative. From where you are, you probably think I am more authoritative. From where I am, you appear to be recklessly waving
freedom at the expense security. In the end, I think the Political Compass is an accurate gauge. No right or wrong, or which is better, you value
more on freedom, I want to balance everything.
Score/Results are based on questions on political issues, so I reckon the more centre you are (square 1 to 4 from centre whichever way ) the more you
subscribe to be the peace maker (whom usually no one listen too!!)
. As you move away from the centre (square 5 to 7 whichever way) you join the
passionate people club. Good or bad, these are leaders who standby their belief and ideology. Square 8 to 10 whichever way from the centre are
extremists, your ultimate saviour or doom bringer type.
Well, just my two cents worth.
