Why would you expect a rise from folks who agree with you? :lol: Then I feel in rewarding company. It normally gets an annoyed reaction from Brits who seem shocked that I'd suggest we lost the war. Of course, now it is well-known that the British Govnernment had been utterly inflitrated by the Comm...

Don't like it? You think of something better. :P Forwardist. I like that. I guess more dimensions are needed. Here stated are 'personal' and 'economic'. What about 'social'. And how about my clarion-call subject; 'human endeavour', or something to the effect of trying to make the world of humans mo...

I guess I didn't succeed in getting a rise out of anyone with the observation that the Brits lost WW2 (and, of course, the Amercians were therefore on the loosing side). Of course, right-minded folks like us know that no wars can be won in this age. It is like asking 'so, who won that earthquake'. ...

The communists (international socialists) and the Nazis (National Socialists) are virtually identical If you had lived through WW2 you'd know how truly stupid that comment is. One side of my wife's family lived in the Sudetenland. I have a grandmother-in-law who still lives in the house they took o...

... And I will have to disagree with your description. Libertarians are not 'radical right' or 'far right' or any kind of left or right, they are forward. Explanation here: Libertarianism: Left or Right? That is nice, but we ain't 19th century French or anything like it. With today's meanings of th...

The political spectrum doesn't have just one dimension. There are plenty of political spectrum charts. I personally like the Pournelle Axes, tho it fails to capture how opinions evolve and relate over time. The Inglehart Values Map has good points too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_spectru...

According to that quiz, this is me PERSONAL issues Score is 90%. ECONOMIC issues Score is 50%. LIBERALS usually embrace freedom of choice in personal matters, but tend to support significant government control of the economy. They generally support a government-funded "safety net" to help the disad...
