Or Woke Chatter.  Defund Chatter.  Chatter Lives Matter.

But seriously, a re-branding might draw 3 or 4 new members.

Hmmmm.....Screw this test!  LOL, I think some of my views are a bit more nuanced than these questions.  Closest match - liberalism?!?  I'll take that as a libertarian, but seems like maybe they're trying to convert me to a liberal when this looks about as moderate as you could probably get.  Seriously, WTF centrist + balanced + neutral + moderate = liberal?!?


I'd say part of it how anything inside 60-40 gets a "neutral" sort of definition even though a 57-43 sort of margin really isn't THAT neutral in the long run. I'd also say that to most people, going from the societal axis, this test puts progressiveness in a far better light than actual progressives do. I mean, with the questions here, to be progressive, you're basically giving answers saying that the old ways aren't necessarily the best and society should evolve; while in real life, that gets taken to an over-the-top "IF YOU AREN'T EVOLVING RIGHT DAMN NOW, YOU SUCK AND NEED CANCELED!!!!!!!" screech.

I know that of the four categories, that was the one that had me surprised a bit, mainly due to how dominant Progress was since I tend to hate modern progressives because they're so annoying they inadvertently hurt their causes and turn slam dunks into missed layups all the time.

Only surprised by the economic axis. The others seem mostly accurate.

I wonder how scientific it really is.  Asking someone if they think computers are good for society is completely disconnected from what it means to be a conservative or progressive. 

A scale of "tradition" vs. "progress" is itself loaded/biased.  As opposed to the others, tradition and progress are not mutually exclusive.  Also, regulation =/= socialism.  Recognizing that market distortions necessitate some level of regulation doesn't move one closer to socialism/equality.
