Can someone explain how someone in the bottom left hand corner at the bottom can exist?
If your fully Libertarian, you are happy for anything to go, as long as it does not cause harm to someone else.
At the same time, you want everyone to be treated equally.
So if somebody wanted to pay someone to teach him how to do something, how do you stop that as your pro Libertarian, but at the same time, how do you make sure this person paying for this remains equal with everyone else?
Surely the more equal you try to keep everyone, the more Authoritarian you have to be so that everyone remains equal? Otherwise there is nothing stopping people doing their own thing, and not being equal to everyone else?
I also don't understand, that if we keep everyone equal, how do we move forward, how do we invent new stuff. How would music work, would everyone have to like the same thing?
Surely the bottom left is Democractic Socialism? The recognition of the right for all individuals to have a democratic choice and an ability to influence change in the system of governing, but at the same time supporting left wing policies which gives everyone an equal opportunity to flourish no matter what their socio-economic background is?
Basically, giving everyone a vote on issues but then campagining against the general population when they don't choose socialist results.
(Sorry to drag this topic up but I missed it the first time round!)
Here is my graph:
I can't say I'm entirely suprised with the result as I do come from a family with stubbornly working class heritage. (My ol' grandad was a dustman, he wore a dustman's hat, he wore cor blimey trousers and he lived in a council flat!)
For anyone feeling disconnected with the the 'left
wing' parties of today, I would seriously recommend you take a look at the Greens. They are the only party who are actually posing a genuine alternative and despite my distaste for their recklessly lax drugs policies, most things seem to fall comfortably into (my opinion of) civilised political beliefs and I would urge everyone to vote for them!This political broadcast was brought to you by Meat Pie.
