    I like to think of myself as just to the right of Hammurabi. In reality, i'm probably classically liberal I guess.

    Took that survey. Admittedly, I chose "neutral" on some of the more complex questions.

    Agreed. There should be an option to hide this subforum, and sidebar notifications of topics from this subforum.

    Not really against an option, but you can also just choose to ignore it. You didn't have to look at this thread, let alone post.

    It's hard to work on rectifying current issues when we elect regressive leadership that continuously adds new issues to rectify. At least 30% of the country believes we can get out of any hole by digging deeper.

    Keep it civil people!
    It's just a simple question of where one falls in the political spectrum, not a personal war.

    That Islam is a violent religion(I also acknowledge Catholicism is a child rape cult and that isnt any better), that immigrants must assimilate to the their new culture(you get 2 years to learn the language, if you dont your out), revoke all special treatment(special ed, disability benefits, affirmative action), that natural selection is good(yes, that includes letting those with severe disabilitys die if they cant walk to the cabinet to get food or change their own diaper, I know they cant breed but they are a waste of resources since they cant have a good life anyway), anti-censorship(anything goes, all information should be free and legal).

    I differ on some of their opinions though:
    Immigration is fine, everyone should have the chance to live where they want and your innocent until proven guilty unlike the beliefs of some.
    I am open to more liberal opinions and wont dismiss an entire persons beliefs over 1 thing I find stupid or factually wrong.

    For a second I thought you were talking about the Nazi part and I was like OOF

    But yeah, no, I'm totally with you there, a lot of people don't understand that crossing the border to seek refuge is actually a legal method of entry, and on top of that I've never gotten why the same people that bemoan how tyrannical and overreaching our central government is, suddenly trust them to enforce laws that they wrote on who should be able to enter the country for what reasons, and when

    Jesus Christ and you're fine with all that?! You do understand that that last bit is literally eugenics, right? That you're advocating for what was 100% legitimately one of the major backbones of the Nazi ideal?...

    I am not for the racial, religious or anti-gay aspect at all, the Nazis tainted eugenics and now everyone thinks its bad, yes I believe in eugenics but what I stated above isnt even eugenics.

    Eugenics requires actively killing the defective, this would just be them dying of natural causes, In this case the individuals viability as a person decides whether they live or not, not an extermination task force, its much harder to abuse for political gain/blind hatred.

    To be blinded by kindness is just as bad as being blinded by hatred.

    I'm absolutely reeling, I've met people who definitely act like they want disabled people to die but I've never actually met somebody who just straight up admits it. Christ. Okay.

    So just "how disabled" does someone have to be to revoke their right to not just be treated like a human being, but to fucking continue to live?

    Actively not helping those who need help when there's plenty of resources to do so, so they die is literally the same as just going for the kill outright.
    Does your bullshit apply when someone breaks their legs?
    What about general sickness? If they can't get out of bed to make food for themselves, is that meant to be a death sentence?

    Some could argue that your way of looking at life and society is so far removed from reality, it could only qualiy as entirely defective. and by your reasoning, we shouldn't keep defective in the gene pool so... I dunno, I'm sure there's a suitable window nearby.

    If food, water and shelter were provided could you survive on your own for a month?
    If yes you should be treated like a normal human, if no you are defective and a burden, many disabilitys cant be fixed but the person can live normally, obviously the colorblind shouldnt be killed just because they are different.

    Different doesnt mean defective, diversity brings resilience.

    If its temporary, no, thats what medicine is for.

    As for the "thats socialism", I said I was for communism already?
    If someone cant think(brain dead or retarded), they are not a person and thus communism doesnt apply in that case.
    Greed and the glorification of the rich is far worse than any disability at the moment.(Just look at how Elon Musk behaves and is glorified, along with Steve Jobs)

    A centrist leaning towards Libertarian.

    But these tests might not be that precise, I would have liked to answer "neutral" in some questions.

    What's the political spectrum position for "subscribing to labels like religious doctrines is dumb and the culture war is extremely dumb?"

    This 100%.

    Laws should be enforced, otherwise there would be chaos, but aside from "it's the law" I don't think I've ever heard a legit argument. Some of these people are bad and some good. Same with every group of humans ever.

    I get what you're saying, but I've always seen this stance used as an example, I've never seen it actually put in practice. True centrism is trying to find compromise for both sides, but in practice and execution, in your example most people who are against the killing would end up being very center. A more proper example based on current events would be more like

    "White men are responsible for the systematic oppression of all non-whites, so we're justified in hating them!"

    vs

    "Non-whites have the lowest IQs, Paul Joseph Watson told me so! They're also responsible for aggression in society, so we should hate them!"

    which from people like me, both sides garner the response of "you're both dumb, shut the hell up already"
