|On the standard left-right scale, how do you distinguish leftists like Stalin and Gandhi? It's not sufficient to say that Stalin was simply more left than Gandhi. There are fundamental political differences between them that the old categories on their own can't explain. Similarly, we generally describe social reactionaries as 'right-wingers', yet that leaves left-wing reactionaries like Robert Mugabe and Pol Pot off the hook.|
This is probably a repost .. but .. what the heck. It's fun.
Note: When finished you are given a graphic showing your position on the 'political compass'. It also shows the positioning of Stalin, Hitler, Thatcher, Gandhi and Freidman. I grabbed both graphics and did a merge with my graphics program. What fun ... and all this time I thought of myself as a Right Wing Liberal ...
|Well I think that settles things. I am so close to Ghandi, that there is no point in arguing with me anymore. LOL|
I messed up the chart slightly inputting my name.
