I'm hoping to expand my research for a politics essay about 'general ideology'. I know this is vague, so I'm approaching this question from a left/right, idealist/materialist stance.
I'd really appreciate any info on your favoured 'side' and why you feel as though it's 'better' than the opposite.
Thanks for the help, it's been quite challenging to get external opinion lately

I am usually a fan of balance. Both sides are needed so the over doesn’t become too extreme, and we can keep a balance. I tend to be more towards the left due to my views on the environment and helping others less fortunate than ourselves, but I appreciate that both sides are needed for the greatest success

Personality profiles might also be a good addition. Mine is INFJ if you were curious

The right for economic issues. The left for social issues. So I'm probably in the middle.

I'm similar to the previous poster. Economically I'm right wing but socially I'm liberal. I consider myself a centrist, but leaning very vaguely right wing.

Thanks for the reply, this will definitely help! I'm ENFP btw, but I genuinely have no idea what this means... I was 'forced' to make an account and now I get regular emails about my personality with a long list of articles that I might be interested in. Is there any chance that you could fill me in?

Thanks for the response, this view has actually surfaced quite frequently in polls and previous research.
If you have the time, I'd be interested in your view of the Green New Deal. How would this impact your view of the Greens, and their choice to adopt the deal as a central part of their manifesto?
One quick addition, do you believe that it's possible to create a state that adopts rightist economic stances with a leftist social care system?

Thanks again for your reply, this will definitely help the essay

The Green New Deal is stupid economically. It changes the economy too fast, meaning that many people will be left behind. The best progress towards a greener world is a slow one. And yes, it is possible to create a state that adopts rightist economic stances with a leftist social care system.

Don't vote. Electoralism is a con that actively resists any attempts by the public to change the world, draining your time away from actual effective projects to legitimise rule by bureaucrats, and if you elect someone who promises actual change, the system will scorch the earth to stop them. If you believe in anything then mutual aid groups and direct action/organising is the only way

Both parties have a structural obligation to serve the same economic interests and have abandoned class issues decades ago, so I might as well just stay home and masturbate on election day.
