My beliefs go all across the spectrum, but I do tend to lean quite far across to the right.

Socially liberal.
Economically, until fairly recently I'd have said centre left, still am in some respects but I've started questioning some of my own assumptions more and on some issues I'd say centre to centre right. I've been listening to the right leaning side of the argument more and I find some people on the more radical/ Momentum type left really toxic.

Which issues? In my experience Momentum types don't really make that many economic arguments.

I'm in the middle. Right economically and left socially.

Don't like to identify with either of them to be honest. My views come from both sides and, to be honest, i stand by the theory that the left//right dichotomy is outdated in this day and age.

The world is becoming more dynamic, dogmatism will only prevent progression

Why? And how do you define left wing?
(Original post by Crazyhorse13)
Left wing 100%
Prepare your pistol as Stalin surely has his prepared. You know, you're gonna be competing for power at Kremlin.

Direct worker control over the means of production and the abolition of wage labour and capital accumulation.

Not sure what you're implying. There is more to the left than Marxism-Leninism.

Let's remove whole motivation, and move decision making from mildly-ignorant, to complete ignorants. What a great idea!

Let's remove whole motivation
Socialism incentivizes workers more than capitalism does, because under socialism, they get paid their actual labor value. When people understand that their needs will be taken care of through everyone's collective contribution, then people would be free to work for autonomy, mastery, and purpose instead of not dying of starvation. Speaking of motivation, this 2013 poll by Gallup found that only 13% of the 180 million employees in the 142 countries studies found that they were engaged with the work they were doing. https://news.gallup.com/poll/165269/...aged-work.aspx
