Generally centre with a slight shift to either the left or right depending on the topic and/or the policy

I agree with much of the right on almost all topics. I also find the extreme left to be the scum of the earth.

My motto is The rights of the individual above the rights of the group

Left wing. Aka I have a sense of humanity.
I'm quite certain it's the opposite, protecting the markets, reducing tax and keeping jobs open all depends on how you think, just because I take priority for the UK with 65 million people. Doesn't make me someone without humanity, in fact, it's less humane to allow so many immigrants to take jobs and raise tax. For 65 million people. In my eyes, the right is far more humane.

Oh how good the right are at propaganda and repeating it so mindlessly.

Luckily the left are here to see through your bullsh*t.

Question: do you use the NHS?

Answer is most likely yes.

Your point has been refuted.

Good day.
Question: Do you pay extra tax on top of the tax for the NHS so that anyone in the UK can use the NHS?

Answer: Yes (If you have the effort to get a job)

Question: Are you aware that the Official UK unemployment stands at 2.67 million but they get the NHS anyway?

Answer: Maybe

Question: Are you aware that we grant the NHS to anyone coming into the country at this point in time? (this can be from visitors, to tourists, to migration and this is payed for by our tax money)

Answer: Probably didn't think of that.

Question: Because of this are you aware that the NHS can easily be abused?

Answer: I probably didn't think about that either.

Your point has been refuted.

The Solution to this problem is certain restrictions put in place or privatization (personally, I prefer the first option but either would work).

None of my points were refuted. Unfortunately for you I'm done arguing with the right-wing, this debate happened yesterday. No doubt you'll take that as my loss, which is your right.

I did however take the time to highlight the most ridiculous thing you said in that comment. Please do go and take the time to pick up a book on what socialism strives to accomplish. It is clear you don't like the NHS, and therefore fruitless for me to argue with a moron.

Keep deluding yourself.

Unfortunately you depict me as moron which is why you claim it is fruitless to argue with someone who is deluded. But this is where you are wrong, I do like the NHS but we have a problem with the way it is ran. It is easily abused by random visitors and then they run back to there original country. Meanwhile actual users waste the time of doctors because they are being over-dramatic, light privatization combined with certain restrictions would create a perfect system.

In future, try actually making a calm debate rather than calling someone who disagrees with you a "deluded moron" and making absolutely no point in return. This is why I am not part of the left.

Do name one actual politician on the right who has ever made a speech about individual rights as opposed to the rights of "Britons", "natives", "Hungarians", or whoever.

Left on some issues whilst right on others, and central on yet more.

What will that do? Make his opinion more valid? No It's HIS motto. You don't have to follow in the footsteps of politicians. In fact it is a bad idea to do so with most.

I'm talking about the fact that individualism on the right is politically dead. There are no people to institutionalise those ideas anymore. Everyone is a populist nationalist with no interest whatsoever in individual rights and liberties.

Since this test is biased towards the left, maybe centre-left lol. I guess I see myself as a traditional leftist of sorts. I'm left-wing on most issues but I don't really identify with the modern mainstream left.

Since I live in the United kingdom (and only pay attention to the UK news). Unfortunately I have also not seen any politicians in the UK heavily endorsing Individualism, due to the conservative leader; Theresa may (She makes the majority of speeches I witness in the UK). Her thought process which the majority of conservatives are not a fan of, sometimes consists of left wing policies. Needless to say, it is not dead on the right wing. I endorse this feature of society and obviously so does Randyyy.

I didn't say any politician made a speech about it but the right in general are much more in favour of the right of the individual as opposed to the group. I wouldn't say I'm righr wing but i just agree with a lot of right wingers eg Ben Shapiro (political commentator not politician i know )

For example I don't believe in a progressive tax system, I believe from a moral standpoint a flat tax rate is more ideal. I also want smaller goverment and more free market. These are widely considered to be right wing notions and imo they promote individuals' rights. Imo bigger government and socialism promote the group's rights as opposed to rhe individuals

If we go by the political compass then I'm half way along the collectivist axis traditionally and half way as liberal as Ghandi.

Over time however I've gotten to measure as about as liberal as Ghandi and have moved slightly closer to the Hitler economically.

The more wisdom and experience I get the more liberal I become and the more on the economic side I realise that the alternative might not be much better, in some cases worse.

However, because I believe in science and that reality/nature/truth do no cease at the point it becomes politically inconvenient, do not like religion in general and am against mass immigration to the UK, I'm considered far right.

I think the tool is weak and outdated. It does not consider right wing (belief in biological sciences) versus left wing (belief in social science). Nor does it consider authoritarian positions such as should people who criticise religion or mass immigration be penalised.

Neither did I say that you did. But the fact is that politicians with a free-market rhetoric (if not free market practices), politicians who promote ideas of individual liberty. do not exist anymore. The era of Thatcher and Reagan is long gone. Now, the right is primarily composed of people like Trump, Le Pen and Orban. I.e. populist nationalists with no time for individualism or free markets.

Not sure that Shapiro is an example of someone who upholds individualism.

Regardless of the political landscape I'm gonna have to think about all the issues myself and form personal opinions on matters as opposed to clinging onto a politician and just going along with whatever they say simply because they said it. I don't understand why you made the initial comment in the first place.

As for Shapiro, he litterally called himself a 'radical individualist'
