8 Values (i.e. yet another political ideology quiz)
« on: April 26, 2017, 10:47:52 am »
So apparently 8 Values, one of those political quizzes (as I already mentioned), has been making the rounds on the interwebs. It's a fun way to kill a few moments, so why not?

Anyway, take the quiz, share your results and discuss. I'm sure you're all familiar with how this stuff works. As for my fine self, I am apparently a social liberal overall, as you can see. Make of that what you will.

So yeah. Enjoy.

I'm more extreme than you, Art.

Huh. I seem to be a bit extreme. Maybe I should reconsider my opinions and temper them accordingly.

Being extreme isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Yeah, by and large, I'd be pretty centrist with only the slightest of leanings one way or the other if not for my big old "religion and everything it stands for can fuck right off" streak padding out my progressive rating.

Of course it is. You never hear about the people who are moderates causing terrible things to happen, only those who take ideologies too far or are too extreme about things. Everything should be done in moderation, and wanting more than that will invariably end in disaster.

Done in moderation. That doesn't mean your true views have to be moderate.

Well, at the same time, sometimes you have to push for policies that are extreme relative to the status quo, but only because the status quo is itself extreme...

We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.

First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.

Here's my scores:



It's a little extreme, but I think I'm fine, honestly.

Social libertarian, not economic. ("I don't give a shit what people do, but I don't trust corporations.")

Also, I posted this on another forum (which has plenty of conservatives), and one of them got "Neo-Liberalism."

I had to look it up, and the term has been redefined so many times over the years, I'm not sure if I agree with it as applied to me or not.

Let me explain what you are... you're a Liberal, but you aspire to be a rich, cocksucker Republican.

I find it hilarious that 'libertarian socialism' and 'social libertarianism' are apparently different ideologies
