    I don't think that's particularly accurate.

    Collectivism 50% (don't let our most vulnerable go without an adequate roof over their head, food, education, healthcare etc.)
    Authoritarianism 0% (government should tax and regulate but we needn't be a nanny state)
    Internationalism 33% (co-operate with allies and preserve our interests)
    Tribalism -50% (I prioritise Britain but I'm not xenophobic)
    Liberalism 33% (legalise, tax and regulate hard drug trade/support traditional family unit/abortion should be legal/laws should be based on pragmatism, not religion)



    Liberalism -100% hahahahaha
    Yep, vaguely sounds like me

    Communist libertarian? :toofunny:

    I never placed these tests on a high pedestal, but I cannot take this one seriously.
    Funny bc libertarianism originated from Socialism. To quote chomsky:
    "Let me just say regarding the terminology, since we happen to be in the United States, we have to be rather careful. Libertarian in the United States has a meaning which is almost the opposite of what it has in the rest of the world traditionally. Here, libertarian means ultra right-wing capitalist. In the European tradition, libertarian meant socialist. So, anarchism was sometimes called libertarian socialism, a large wing of anarchism, so we have to be a little careful about terminology.”
    Not a hugely credible source however this is correct.

    A conservative who can bend his political beliefs to please the masses and feels that civil wars should be solved by the participating countries and not outside intervention

    Yeah. I tend to place somehwere near 'centre' on aggregate. Basically, I'd say I want a unified national culture which assimilates the best parts of each community's culture and prevents segregation, no sexism/racism or any of that bs, fair distribution of wealth but opportunity to excel financially off the back of intellect/creativity/work ethic, selective and constructive immigration policy, progressive (but not far left) social policy focused on making society more egalitarian and only moderate government interference in daily life/business/social issues where it is necessary.

    Pretty bog standard and not what I'd generally call Socialist Humanist or whatever it was.

    I agree that liberalism has its flaws but there are times where liberal stances are appropriate and positively transformative.

    Also, 'your background/people' is tricky to define. Where do you draw the line and why there specifically?

    The problem with political views is that one person can think that something is left and another will think it's right so everything is totally subjective and there isn't a lot of room for cut-and-dried definitions. So whilst I'm mostly socially conservative I'm also more left wing economically (not communist) but I also support the legalisation of marijuana which a lot of conservatives balk at so what the heck am I lmao?

    Naturally, but inherent in contemporary manifestations of liberalism is the concept of loosening things up and maintaining ceaseless 'progressive' movement, almost whatever happens (intergenerationally) as a consequence, rather than trialling things, measuring/judging/perceiving effects, and tailoring/reforming policy accordingly

    Faith schools are but one, classic, example of the liberal egalitarian agenda pushing on without first stopping to question e.g. is this conducive to the common good, in the public interest, or at least socially sustainable?

    Where do you draw the line and why there specifically?
    If you could save one member from relevant groups from catastrpohe which would you pick to save, in what order e.g. myself:

    Immediate family > wider family > friends > neighbours > indigenous inhabitants of the same: settlement > county > region > nation > continent > civilisation > foreigners
