There is a really neat website that can help you figure out your political beliefs and where you stand compared to others.
It’s called Political Compass, and you should definitely give it a try.
Basically, it defines what is considered “left” and what is considered “right” so that you can get a better idea of what political terms mean.
It also shows you who is where. So look closely at the top right quadrant. That is the most important square right now, because Adolph Hitler is in it.
But, I want you to look at who else is in that square, according to policy.
Note: all the US candidates in this year’s election except for Bernie Sanders are in the same box as Hitler.
Think about that.
They are all to the right (Conservative) and they are all Authoritarian (Against freedom).
That’s a huge deal, and it explains why I keep trying to say that the US has shifted right in an alarming way.
Now let’s look at who is in the lower left. Ghandi. Well that’s cool. He was a pretty nice guy. Guess who else falls into that box?
That would be yours truly. I am liberal, and I support freedom over authoritarianism.
I am really proud to be in that box. Really proud.
It is the best box.
