    Yes.

    No.

    But mostly yes, got bored and wanted to see if the stereotype about TSR being radically left wing is true in accordance to Encyclopedia Dramatica - seems it was somewhat correct lol
    You've proved nothing, that people opposed your suggestions doesn't mean that they are radically left wing. I'm reluctant to define myself politically until I'm a bit older and more experienced, but I would say I tended towards the centre right. You know, the limitation of government is often associated with conservatism... (although its not one of my foremost political concerns)

    lol im Centre-Right, but conservatives seem too focuses on getting all the muck fit to rake onto labour instead of getting some real policies

    I dont really agree with extreme left-wing, but i like the idea of this whole socialism idea where everything is accepted (to a certain limit)

    Its good you're thinking about politics, (centre-right views, socialism etc) if you're trying to really think about what sort of political position you would like to adopt that's great

    Personally, I really try and avoid sort of one size fits all politics, for example I would describe myself as right wing in terms of foreign policy, but in terms of the structure of the domestic state I think that an approach influenced by a degree of socialism is more appropriate. So ye.. keep thinking about what you believe in and take your time before say you're Labour or Conservative or anything else... which you seem to be doing already, so this is somewhat pointless advice lol.

    It seems like you forgot the second part. Let me add it for you;

    "Britain needs a dictatorship,like a hole in the head"

    Basically, whilst some benign dictator may make things better, we would still be at the beck and call of whatever whim takes them at any given time.

    And that just isn't how I roll.

    lol yeah, tbh i used to be quite on the right-wing, until i kinda saw how much...more humane the centre and left looked, but left-wing, while its a nice idea, is somewhat too weak - Lib Dems arent strong enough to ever get power - bit of a lost cause to vote for them really.

    BNP and UKIP are just stirring up irrational fears about immigrants while we arent as great in terms of employment and crime lol - bit hypocritcal!

    but the moderate right-wing is probably what we need right now i would have thought - Not only a change, but Labour are a confused shell of what they used to be, switching from Left to Right whilst failing at both :P

    and no worries lol

    lol i was taking the piss out of the whole "left-wing" stereotype of TSR by seeing who would respond to outlandish and hypocritical right-wing totalitarianism

    turns out a few people managed to agree with some of the most outlandish statements i could think of, which is a bit worrying

    lol im Centre-Right, im not a nazi and i also have some libertrian roots

    i dunno, i cant see a reason why marjuiana shouldnt be legal, apart from the fact that commercialisation might mean children or something ridiculous like that might take it up

    its a strange one, just like how to be libertarian we must allow someone to do hard drugs if they want - but somehow it feels kinda conflicting lol

    Leftism is just confusing :P

    lol i dont believe any of that sh*t, and hopefully no-one else does either

    i just wanted to see if the constant stereotype of "Libertarian Left-Wing Hardcore Socialists" was true lol

    but drugs iz baddd, and the only policy i remotly i agree with is the legalise marijuana (but it make it ridiculously mild, so the risks of mental breakdowns are lessened)

    Of course you're not a Nazi if you're centre-right with some libertarian sympathy - that makes you socially liberal and economically right, Nazis were the exact opposite of that.

    Incidently I think children are more likely to get their hands on drugs from drug dealers, who let's face it, are unlikely to ID, than shops with lisences which could be taken away if they serve to minors.

    I don't know why your last sentence is there though, how did you get back onto leftism? Legalising drugs doesn't have to be a leftie policy, I'm far right and want to legalise 'em all.

    The problem with a dictatorship is that it is very hard to get rid of, especially if you happen to end up with a leader that abuses their powers for their own selfish ends, which would ultimately happen. Then you and everyone else will suffer. I also refuse to let a state tell me what to believe or think. I saw Communism mentioned earlier, great in writing but again ultimately fails because of human selfishness.

    Don't worry, the chances with most weed of affecting you long term are ridiculously low, it IS less dangerous than cigarettes.

    lol thats goodgood to hear (Y) but even then its not that simple, cause of the whole wanting the police to be much stronger (not to the extent of my OP)

    which im pretty sure is much more right-wing than left, but i'll check later

    lol i always thought drug legalisation was primarily a left/liberarian policy, but that could just be political stereotyping
