This is what I got.
This is my fifth time taking the test since 2017, and the first time my final 'label result' changed. Previously it was consistently Libertarian Socialist. For anyone that doesn't want to open the file, my current result is Libertarian Communist.
Congratulations on living a life completely devoid of reality.
You can say that for literally any political ideology. You need to explain why it's void of reality or it holds no water.
Because the types of answers you have to give to give those results requires you to be completely emotionally unstable and self-centered, or just parroting the ideology without any real grasp or indication of the gravitas of the topic yourself.
That doesn't mean that the ideas or in of themselves "Bad" or "Not good compared to others." It means I can tell that to back such policies shows how short-sighted and stupid you are, and your disregard for how complicated the real world actually is.
Woah, hold on there partner. This is a result generated from 70 "how much do you agree with the statement" questions. Taking that result and making such a declarative statement about a fellow...
As much as I'd like to just flip your own statement around, it wouldn't be true. I'm not living a life devoid of reality, and I doubt you are either. What I am doing is forming opinions about sentences. Which is what this entire thread is.
Though I will say that your knee jerk judgement about a person you don't know is, in fact, short-sighted and stupid. It demonstrates a disregard for how complicated the real world is.
EDIT: And how about actually contributing to the thread conceit instead of just making an empty declaration?
Dopa can speak for himself but upon seeing that, every one of those is extremely to one side. All four of them. Sure, it's only 70 questions about political ideologies but looking at it brings me surprise especially in the categories they all favor. I'd be more curious and less surprised if you flipped just one or two of those poles. It sounds highly idealistic, very highly. I'd be shocked to see the exact opposite on those poles as well.
The surprise comes from a consistent set of ideals? While most of my answers were in the "Strongly" category, they were not all. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with strong values.
Though I feel like I should thank you for expressing surprise rather than insulting me.
People with values like this tend to lack life experience though.
I don't know what you are basing that judgement off of. And that doesn't mean I lack life experience. To immediately assume that someone with strong values lacks life experience is... off. That, to me, reads more like someone lacking in life experience.
Strong values are not uncommon, in any group. Nor are they necessarily bad.
If this is all because the word "Communism" popped up, just say it is. If it's because I know what I agree and don't agree with... think about that?
But there is a tendency of those values, especially while that strong, to be present with those who have not seen a lot of the walks of life. It's highly idealistic and reminiscent of youthful hope without much consideration.
Again, I do not know where you are getting this from. Is the assumption that as people gain life experiences they must also become jaded? If so, that's a choice. Plain and simple.
Considering that this is because I said I strongly agreed with statements rather than simply agreed, this is one of the stupider conversations I've had. I cannot believe the argument is that people with greater life experiences have weaker opinions.
Though that's not the argument, is it? It's because I hold leftist views. "those values" "values like this" "such policies" Grow up, tell me that you don't like communism. I can take it. Don't pussyfoot around. Cracks me up that Dopamine accused people of being pussies in his first post on the thread.
And honestly, I didn't expect to have any discussion regarding my results.
Final bit: On your own test it was the leaning towards freedom and away from traditions that granted you the "social" label. The reverse is conservative.
A libertarian communist doesn't seem to mesh well, in fact they seem to be opposed in many ways.
I do believe that 8values is using the international definition of Libertarian, rather than the US perversion. An alternative name for Libertarian-Communism is Anarcho-Communism.
Is this a definition you find suitable?
-Anarcho-communism, also known as anarchist communism, is the belief that no hierarchies or money should exist, and that property and industry should be held in common by society.
I used Anarcho-Communism because that is, I guess, more universal? Libertarian has a jumbled meaning. At least in the US.
If you have extreme values then you're going to get criticized about it. Get over it.
