I am honestly not surprised about that. While you may be rather liberal when it comes to immigration and the environment, on most other issues like personal liberties and foreign policy you take a much more centered or even occasionally a conservative approach.

I doubt the governments would be representative of this, since 90% of the people taking this poll can't even vote, never mind hold public office.

Please keep your bemoaning off this thread, okay?

WOW! I must be a centrist because I landed directly in the middle where the crosshairs are (+). Imagine that.

It is an important issue and that 90% is currently affected by it and even more when they get to vote. That comment is not different then when others ask what party they like or asking who they support between a conservative woman and a mentally unstable pussy grabber.

I agree this might not be the best place to talk about it this is why I created this thread I invite you to check out.

I'm having a dull evening, so I decided to update the poll for the new posters.


Interestingly, in this updated poll we are seeing a more balanced split between Left and Right than in the last one, and we are seeing more centrists appear.

The poll here is still running if you haven't posted yet. I'll probably do the final update one week from today, which will be more intensive than the prior updates. Please still post if you haven't.

All blue marks indicate points from the 2015 survey, all red marks indicate points from the 2017 survey. The different shapes are irrelevant, this was the only way this site I used would of graphed so many same-colored points. If anyone knows a nice scatter graph maker website, feel free to tell me.

It's interesting that there is a sharp decrease of libertarian right-wing posters since 2015. I wonder if that demographic has shifted left over the last two years. And the opposite seems to be occurring when it comes to the authoritarian left. Across the board, there seems to be a slight shift towards authoritarianism. Of course, this is all speculation. If you have a better theory on some of these changes, please tell.

Just wondering, what do you define as centrist? Is it those who are in the honest, hard working arayans? Or is it those only very cloe to the center? Also the change could be due to the fact we are seing the migration of gen y or millenials-whichever one you call it-, and the arrival of the gen Z. Which despite similarities is starkly diffrent.

Hello we are a system-more than one person inhabiting a body-, and glad to be able to be a part of here,if you have anything you wish to talk about we are willing to talk. We can also give you more info on systems if requested.

And tell I shall. If you refer to the 2015 graph, you see a wider variety of opinions. You have people that qualify for every quadrant. Of course, the posters in top left are a little exceptional because honestly I would not call Stronk Serb and phuckphace leftists in the slightest. Discounting them, You see a greater consolidation of rightists becoming more authoritarian in 2017. But even if you count these two exceptional posters, the left has become more staunchly anti-authoritarian from 2015 to today. Social control is a no-go. I would say that the fact that it is much easier to find a correlation today (a line is very visible) is a sign of the continuing polarization and homogenization of politics. There are more people toeing party lines than those subscribing to older political ideas like Leninism or even neoconservatism. If this is true, then it is a little disheartening.

Stronk Serb was actually an Authoritarian Marxist back in those days if I remember correct - he was a commie before he went full ethnonationalist. Phuckphace used to support a full command economy back then too - and was basically a national Bolshevik / Third-positionist - so him ending up on the authoritarian left isn't much of a surprise to me. But yeah that sort of Left doesn't exist anymore (I know some people who ascribe to it and curse Khrushchev as a filthy revisionist but they're increasingly rare).

Anyways I couldn't resist contributing this since it was always an aim of mine to adequately map the positions of this community back when I was active: here's mine, somehow I am more libertarian.



Economic: 3.75
Social: - 7.38

Out on my own too it seems.

@downNow, how about you show us where you fall on the political spectrum? It would be interesting to see where you stand. It's a very easy quiz, just access it via the link I posted in the first post here. Please do enlighten us, there is no need to be scared, we're all friends here!


To the rest of the people: I am currently out of town, without access to my PC, so I won't be updating the compass graph within the next week or two. I'll try to post an updated graph as soon as I can.
