Interesting wee questionnaire to assess your political leanings through personality based questions although would imagine most are around the bottom left box.

It`s a west Fife football forum.
Nearly everyone (me included) will be in the bottom left quadrant.
Basically we are all Gandhi.

You might be a leftie, lpf, but no way are you a bottom. πŸ™‚

Eta. There's no lack of (far) right bottoms though.....

I get the joke GG but it`s quite interesting that there are relatively few people/organisations who are Libertarian Right, despite so many claiming to be so.

The subtlety that they appear to be overlooking is that wanting freedom for you and your mates at the expense of others still counts as authoritarian.

For example, Anarcho-Capitalists would give the market free reign to do with us as it sees fit. This is a situation which would suit Jeff Bezos down to the ground, but would do little to improve the overall freedom of the average Amazon worker.

The Right is inherently authoritarian because it seeks to create and maintain hierarchy - it is motivated to conserve tradition. As a result it wants us to know our place and won`t be shy about forcing us to adhere to it given half a chance.

Dr. Johnson was alive to the hypocrisy of self-styled libertarians some time ago.

β€˜β€™Slavery is now no where more patiently endured, than in countries once inhabited by the zealots of liberty.’’
β€’ No. 11 (June 24, 1758)


β€˜β€™How is it that we hear the loudest yelps for liberty among the drivers of negroes?’’
β€’ Taxation No Tyranny (1775)

Got round to doing the test myself and I'm another bottom lefty. Not at all surprised but I think I have shifted in a number of areas since I was a young man. I like to think I'm more mature now and have acquired the wisdom I lacked then. ☺

Lpf, I'll be in touch the day after the pubs reopen. πŸ˜‰

Seriously though, you come across really well on these forums and I'd happily spend a few hours in your company.

Aw thanks man! That's really kind of you. I need a professional barber before I go anywhere near society. Its been almost a year and although my good lady has put in some pretty decent attempts she won't make it as a professional!
