    Which is why I said normal left/right people are classified by the uneducated dumb cunts on the far left and right.

    ALL extremists are fucking stupid, no matter if it's race, religion, politics or even food.

    Graphical reference of different ideals.

    I sit around the line of Social Democracy and Socialism, triangulated by Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Dalai Lama of all people!

    I somewhat disagree with this. For example, Greens basically are Socialists (or at least, as Socialist as they can get), and Libertarians are generally anywhere in the bottom segment depending on which of the 13 schools of Libertarianism they adhere to.

    My political compass swings depending on the first news story I see that day.

    Stalinism shouldn’t be seperate from communism either. Nice try communists trying to distance yourselves from an actual communist who killed more people than Hitler.

    I actually was close to hitler than right wing. As the compass shows hitler wasn’t all that right wing rather a social libertarian authoritarian fascist. I was about 3 blocks below hitler. Lol

    No not at all.

    Stalin was a megalomaniac who used the Communist movement to put himself in a position of power, who then abused his position to impose his form of tyrannical Communism.

    Marxism, Leninism and Stalinism are degrees apart.

    He was still a communist, instilled communist government, state etc. can’t get more communist than Stalin. I understand Leon trotsky was meant to be the leader but Stalin had him assissinated with an ice pick. No matter how you look at it though, Stalin was a communist and shouldn’t be distinguished from the communist party. Just like Mao Zedong was a fully fledged communist. You lefties can’t conveniently say na they weren’t actual communists. They were fkn communists and some of the most evil men of all ages. Zedong definitely beating hitler with the body count.

    Thst is its fatal flaw, I guess. A decent idea in principle, but it’s pretty hard to make people go along with it without authoritarian force....

    still, there are degrees.... especially between idealistic ideologues and tyrannical political leaders.

    But that's not what you said.

    Yes, Stalin was a Communist, Stalin was a psychopath, Stalin directly and indirectly killed a lot of people, more than Hitler, no arguments - but Stalinism does not equal Socialism or Anarcho Communism or Autonomism.

    This was a bullshit test anyway. The questions were too presumptive.
    Hitler would come down on the “left” of that test.
    Here’s my results anyway;
