    Ah, it had been a while.

    I'm rather amused at how two of the eight results I got are perfectly symetrical, and at the 100% pragmatism :p

    Closest Match: Democratic Socialism
    Democratic Socialism is a form of socialism that seeks to utilize liberal democracy as a means to achieve a socialist economy and society. Democratic Socialist reject revolution and a centrally planned economy, instead supporting moderate social ownership in the form of publicly owned utilities and democratic workplace self-management.

    It labels me as a centrist Marxist. I don’t think I agree with that result. Oh well.

    I think I can only just now call myself a leftist.
    No middle ground when you are dealing with such a terrible right wing. An ideological push to the left will benefit more people than the status quo.

    You can't fool me, you're obviously one of Theodor Liebknecht's top secret time commandos, launched into the distant year 2020 by his late 1920s experiments with super scientific "chrono-Marxism" in the hopes that this era would be more hospitable to navigating the ideological chasms between the KPD and the SPD, and thereby rehabilitating his position from "worst Liebknecht" to the Liebknecht, the definite article if you will. I've already contacted the relevant causality authorities who are, of course, always already in pursuit.

    He would so be one of those grifter Trots who goes on to become a neocon writer for like Weekly Standard if he was alive today. Not that most trots are like tat, just that a lot of war hawks strangely used to be Trots in college

    Absolutely, he's exactly the right kind of failson for that trajectory. He'd have a degree from Yale and everything. His dad being Wilhelm Liebknecht and his brother being Karl would be brought up as a crazy trivia fact, like how Pete Buttigieg's father was the preeminent Gramsci scholar.

    God Cornel West talking about knowing Pete since he was in diapers and being like roomies with his dad or whatever, but still going up to him and being like "I love you, you are family, but you know this is wrong and you are being a neoliberal grifter"

    Has anyone tried the right-wing version? That one is much easier to answer with Strongly Agree or Disagree, and less "uh... click unsure again". :p

    Apparently it's the new trend of "online feminism" which is deemed meaningfully distinct from other waves of feminism because shut up.

    I got Geolibertarianism.
    I honestly didn’t know there’s a version of libertarianism out there that I don’t entirely disagree with.

    Somehow I got Stalin again.

    Edit: Damn link.

    I got technocracy, then georgism. I would have preferred eco-fascism or anarcho-primitivism. I yearn for a simpler time where I would have died of smallpox.

    If it involves being publicly owned, it should be named starbobism.

    LOL "Paleolibertarianism" I just can't [face_rofl][face_rofl]

    I couldn't finish the test, I had to give up at the question about "post-modernism". I will never know whether I'm an eco-fascist or rather a minarchist.

    Btw, I had to google "seperation", and google answered me that there's nothing fancy but they are just misspelling "separation".
    I'm surely not in the position to judge other people's grammar mistakes, however, given their obvious fetishism for complex-sounding words, that's pretty sloppy lol.

    I don't get it. Georgism is definitely not right-wing and technocracy not necessarily.

    Yes, but right wingers love that single tax. On a right wing test, it makes sense that we'd score highly on ideologies that have the most in common with the left.

    I mean, I got a 91.5 on neoliberalism despite going STRONGLY DISAGREE on every free market question, just because neolibs are culturally left leaning.
