    because if you see both corporations and government as things people need to be protected from, you'll get green, and that's what the vast majority of the internet seems to get. to go against that, you're probably gonna have to have some stronger ideological backdrop to your decision-making.

    If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations.
    it's very easy to read this and say "well duh, humanity." it's pretty *obvious,* as jutsu pointed out. to go against this, you're probably gonna have strong beliefs about the free market being more important than globalism.

    I'd always support my country, whether it was right or wrong.
    it's very easy to read this and say "well of course i wouldn't, duh. it's literally asking you if you would do something wrong."

    to go against this, you probably thought about the question a little differently--for example, if you imagine your government becoming corrupt and doing "wrong," *supporting* your country could mean becoming an activist trying to improve it. you could support your country by protesting its corrupt government, trying to make positive changes, etc because you love your country and want it to get on the right track again. you would have to view your "country" as the masses rather than the higher-ups making "wrong" decisions. the only thing that wouldn't be supporting your country would be abandoning it, ignoring it, or trying to completely dismantle it.



    so basically a lot of these questions seem to have an obvious answer, but if you have stronger guiding principles like anarcho-capitalism, marxism, etc, ideology will make you think about the meaning of the question differently. if you "don't care about politics" and are just "normal," picking answers that seem obvious = green.

    i mean, saying green is just "normal" shouldn't be surprising. arch-angle interpreted alph getting blue as natural because he's "the most interesting man in the world." (if there's a green about to write a wall of text... normal = normie = basic = etc is just memeing )

    That's why I get the impression this test is designed to lean left.

    Because you have to answer things like a retard to get far right and if I'm to believe the far right is indicative of the sort of answers you need to give on this test...then perhaps the far right really should be admonished and replaced by other parties. Because if we want to see any actual progress during our lifetimes, we may need to tell the crazy's that still think in the old ways to fuck off.

    Of course you're merely joking around. Because anyone trying to say that far right authoritarians are the free thinking individuals of the pack are just being ironic. Because those people are literal sheep who don't want to actually think about these questions in deep ways.

    Index rants and burns.

    Mantha chooses the nuclear option.


    DAMN SON.


    Also, I do agree that the far right authoritarians are pretty much impossible to get here. I mean, if you look at my option, though I'm far right, I'm pretty low on the authoritarian scale. TBH my ideology aligns more with free-market capitalistic conservatism than authoritarian conservatism, which means that while I believe in certain levels of controls, on the whole my primary concern is for the individual and the economy.
