I am a fanatical Centrist.  :D
Check out the Jreg Centricide series on youtube. 
And don't let the political extremist boogeymen who sleep under your bed attack you at night. ;D


Democratic Socialism - Social Democracy - Capitalism
What is the main difference, briefly, between these three?
So the USA is Capitalism and you are for Social Democracy? I thought Bernie was for Democratic Socialism.

Now, this is quite interesting: Collectivism Test https://www.idrlabs.com/collectivism/test.php

My result:

You tried to distinguish Socialism from Nazism and Fascism and got it right 45% of the time.

You were able to correctly identify:

14.3% of Fascist statements.
20% of Nazi statements.
62.5% of Socialist statements.


I'm not surprised. I never lived in Fascist Italy or Nazi Germany; I was born and raised in the Socialist Republic of Romania.  ;D

     Most people don't push their collectivism to an extreme extent at all, either left or right. You can join the army or support a welfare state and still be quite an individualist in favor of freedom and even an open society. Most people who are socialist, liberal or conservative don't want to live in a dictatorship of any kind.

     The big divide is between members of the groups who prefer to live in free societies and those who don't.

Just took this: https://www.idrlabs.com/morality/6/test.php

My result:

Your scores:

Care 100%
Loyalty 25%
Fairness 75%
Authority 58%
Purity 92%   
Liberty 86%

Your strongest moral foundation is Care.

Your morality is closest to that of a Left-Liberal.


I'm a bleeding-heart liberal ---- take that, Herman!  ;D

     It's when your freedom is compatible with the freedom of others and institutions of government are so arranged. It's how most liberals, conservatives and socialists choose to live. It's a very collective way for non-collectivists to get along with people who don't share their views.

That is, it's never. Never ever. Ever. Is Biden's freedom compatible wirth Trump's? Is the USA government so arranged as to guarantee both?

That's very true, because most liberals, conservatives and socialists are just most normal human beings, ie centrists.

See above. Most normal people are centrists by nature.

That's also true, yet historically many of them ended up living in a dictatorship. Do you have an explanation for this?

I have never lived in a Fascist, Nazi, or Socialist country, yet I got 65%.  I did attend an American university, so that explains it.

Already closed the screen, but my ability to spot Nazi ideas (80%) was tops.  It's all the time I spend reading posts here at GMG, you see.

     Of course, and abnormal people even more so. They want to be free to live with each other, which they do.

Is Biden's freedom compatible wirth Trump's? Is the USA government so arranged as to guarantee both?

     Yes, it is. Trump is finding his need to avoid severe legal problems incompatible with the results of the election. That's his view. My view is that he should be accorded the same protection of the law as everyone else, no more and no less. That applies to the results of the election and any further encounters he will have with the forces of law and order.

I do think and do believe that inveterate rapists and paedophiles should be punished severely, much  much much more severely than pickpockets  or corrupt politicians. They are abnormal people who should be prevented by all necessary means to do the abnormal things they bask in.

Wait a minute! Are you saying, implying and stating that a Fascist should be accorded the same protection of the law as everyone else, no more and no less? If you do, then you are far more tolerant than me --- I would have all Fascists, Nazis and Communists hanged on the spot, right now, right there!

I chose Socialist for every question because every one sounded socialist/communist to me.

100% of Socialist statements.

So 60% was Nazi-ism/Fascism?  ???

But yeah, makes sense, these ideologies can be grouped under collectivism. I guess identity politics in general could be as well. Not a fan.
