New poll! Where do you stand politically? A for conservative, B for libertarian, C for Republican (They're actually technically just right wing liberals), D for Democrats, E for Socialists, F for Anarchists (Guilty as charged, baby!), G for Communist, H For Centralist, Or I for other (explain). I want to see the main politics of my main community!

If you don't yet know, you can just take this quiz (http://www.politicalcompass.org/) and post results. It put me radical down and leaning to the right from the y axis so I'm an Individualist Anarchist.

The Political Compass test usually places me in the in the Libertarian Left quadrant.

That said, despite being very left of center, I still value individualism(what good is people working together if no one ever strives to be above average in something?). Hell, I don't even reject Capitalism so much as I reject corporatism and think capitalism beyond self-sufficiency to be unhealthy.

Political Party wise, I'm a registered Libertarian and would like to see the Libertarian, Constitution, and Green Parties replace the Republicrats as the dominant force in US politics.

Lol I can agree with you on the end there. I approve of your libertarianism, it puts you in the same quadrant as me; libertarian right.

Ok! Omorashi.org is currently anarcho-communist! We technically got -30 on the social libertarian/authoritarian axis, but I can't put a -30 on this graph so we went with -10 instead. If we have any more input I will add on to this scale!

And thank you for being anarchists!!! I owe you! I knew omorashi was primarily an anarchist fetish even though it's mainly about a person being forced into inevitable, oppressive, humiliating submission to a force. Not to bag on Omo; I freaking love this fetish.

Essentially got what I thought I would. Being classified as a 'Libertarian' of any sort somewhat disquiets me, though, because, at least in America, it is usually seen as a semi-exclusive claim for Ron Paul supporters.

chart?ec=-6.88&soc=-4.15

Lol it's not really libertarian. Libertarian is a word for a certain low-right political idea. Consider this graph showing 'libertarian' as small government and 'authoritarian' to be what it sounds like.

Taking the average of all the results rather than the sum would give a much more representative score of somewhere around -1, -3: i.e. much less extreme!

I thought I'd be further right tbh, but this is me.

Despite the differences of opinion within the political spectrum, I think most people share common values. Can anyone really argue that large corporations shouldn't have social responsibilities, or that people who can work but choose not to should be supported by the rest of the country? I doubt it. It only gets complicated when religion gets involved and you have people trying to use it as a reason to act in a certain way, whether it's to commit terrorist attacks or persecute LGBTs.

Lol I figured that out earlier today xD I was about to come back and redo it all with the added newer coords when I found your comment! thanks!

Actual average:

Any chance of seeing the averages posted as plain text? Can't read anyone's result other than my own.

Each individual or the overall average? The overall average was, as mentioned by homeanddry, -1, -3. That's -3 for social y axis and -1 for economic x axis.

Can't figure out the image - it's late and I'm too tired to keep trying - so here are my stats:

Economic Left/Right: -5.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.13

That puts me decidedly on the left side - not so much because I agree with the left as because of my unrivaled disgust for many present day conventions of the right - and highly anti-authoritarian which is no surprise at all. Guess that fits me into the Anarcho-Socialism part of that map.

I'm okay with this.

^I think it worth mentioning that the so called left of US politics is actually right of center and the true left is completely outside mainstream US politics. As is sometimes said of the US: It has a one party system with two right wings masquerading as a two-party system. Granted, if you're speaking from a European perspective, the left might actually be left since Europe doesn't have as strong a right-authoritarian bias as US politics do.

Also, posting the actual numbers makes your post infinitely more readable than everyone else's(I honestly have no idea why anyone would bother trying to post an image rather than simply copying and pasting their scores).

Lol that last bit I can agree on. As for the rest.... -sigh-.... First off, you realize 'right wing' is a term for free economy, not authoritarianism, right? It was butchered into that by lying media officials and the corrupt school systems, at least for the US. Second, it's not a 'right-authoritarian', it's just right. Most everyone I've met is a liberal in the sense that they are right-libertarian or whatever you want to call it. I call it tail-feather. Tail-feather extremists are called anarchists. With that aside, everyone I've met is right tail and the only people I know who are authoritarians are my 'socialist' friend and beloved 4chan. Everyone else is tail. If anything, we're more right-tail biased than right-authoritarian. This is especially true when you take into account the fact that we were built on liberty, and fought communism in the Korean War. That's what we stand for! Our founding fathers didn't call us a democracy! They called us a republic. That means that we do the will of the 'people' unless it goes against written law. It's not 'right-authoritarian' it's 'republican', which is a form of near-libertarianism, which can only be considered as the word we butcher daily by relating it to the left side of the economic spectrum: We're liberals. We support freedom and we support free market. Our politicians, however, are spread along the economic spectrum and are almost always authoritarian. It's disgusting. What was once a beautiful country has become a monster.

I live in the United States and I think you're right about that Jeffery. One thing I learned very quickly when talking politics with friends from other countries is that the same terms can have vastly different meanings, and a proper translation requires a working grasp of not only the political systems of both countries, but their culture and history. Most people won't bother because that's a lot of work just to try to win an argument on the internet.

As for plain text versus images, I was trying to do both but it was getting late and I had to get up early for some stuff I agreed to help with on Memorial Day. Sometimes you gotta quit while you're ahead. Or behind. Or in this case, to the left of the center.

^To clarify, when I say mainstream US politics, I'm talking about the politicians who have a realistic chance of serving in congress, being elected President, or being appointed to a Cabinet-level position under the current electoral system. Last I checked, nearly all such politicians were in the Authoritarian Right quadrant with Democrats tending towards being just above and right of center and Republicans tending closer to the corner. I'll admit my information might be outdated and major party politicians might cover a wider area of the political compass. I'll also admit that the views of politicians holding office don't necessarily reflect the views of the general population, especially when a quarter of the population is barred from voting and only about half of those who could vote did so in the 2012 Presidential election(and it's my understanding that voter turnout is even more dismal in years without a presidential election), and that's ignoring any other failings of our electoral system. To my knowledge, Bernie Sanders is the closest a true leftist has come to getting a major party nomination for President of the United States in my life-time and I'm not aware of any proper 3-way races occurring in living memory or any currently seated member of congress elected as a minor-party candidate(though I have heard of a few who renounced their party after being elected). I do think many of the founding fathers would shake their heads in shame at what modern US politicians are doing, though I'll admit to not being sure how much of my model of the founding fathers is based on fact and how much is due to the way they are romanticised in US popular history.

Also, I thought "Republic" just meant the Head of State doesn't hold the title of King, Emperor, or something equivalent regardless of actual policies. I.e. Russia and China are also Republics despite being seen as very different from the US politically while the UK, other Commonwealth Realms and Japan, despite being more similar to the US politically are not Republics thanks to their extant monarchies even though those monarchies hold no political power.

Not quite. Republics are basically democracies with rules. Russia and China aren't republics, even if they want to call themselves republics, kind of how cuba is not a democracy, even though they claim they are.
