    It's not really communism, since there is no real "wealth" to be redistributed in a system lacking private property.

    There's a degree of understanding here, but it's greatly incomplete. It acknowledges the anti-property position of radical socialism, the egalitarian maxim of communism, and the Marxist model of history, but it doesn't represent a working understanding of these ideas in context, or of the essential nature of socialism which unites them. Getting better, I'll give you that, but there's a way to go.

    Oh, and the "businesses under government control" bit is total crap, but I'll let you have that one for now. :rolleyes:

    Given the opportunity, I would have put "Apathy" on every single one of the economic questions, so I wouldn't put much trust into the -3.12.

    Are you already done with today's Daily Mail, Quackers?

    I think Tailless's posted graph is actually a reaction to something, but I don't know what.

    I went through a fake Stalinist phase too

    eventually it got boring to pretend to be something like that, so I stopped

    We all have different political views, some more than others. Most of us also have taken a test to see said views were. I found this neat little contraption when I took my test, and I want to create a compass for CFC's not wide political view.

    http://www.politicalcompass.org/crowdchart.php?showform

    This is it blank.



    This is it with me on it
    (5.12, 0.82 for future reference)

    Now, the goal is to click on the link and add everyone before you, and yourself. This way, after awhile, we'll get to see how not diverse we all are.

    Did we need another political compass thread? We already have one that is curently hovering around the 2nd/3rd page and should be easy to find through forum search.

    A thread that is on the 2nd/3rd page on OT is dead. Plus, the forum search bar is completely broken as the fact I just get random crap everytime, and never the thread(s) I'm looking for. :p

    The other topic is already pretty complete. We can keep adding, so why start a new one?

    Additionally "political" is spelled wrong.

    Actually my views change so quickly on some issues I retake it periodically.

    I don't attempt to cheat the test or anything like that.

    Though, as a Libertarian, I do have the right so long as I only cheat myself:mischief:
