Brad Wardell's views about technology, politics, religion, world affairs, and all sorts of politically incorrect topics.

I’ve taken tests like this before. Very interesting to see where people end up.

Here’s the test:

Without doing this I was already aware both Frogboy and Island Dog were a little more 'right' than me....or that I was a little more 'left' than them.....but at the end of the day that's a good thing...as balance is important when it comes to community management....

 

The issue with these surveys is you could be a rabid KKK and still come out smelling of Red-Rag roses....since the outcome is some sort of 'average' of all the points given...

I thought Brad was going to announce a new SD game... "The Political Battleship Game".

Hit! You sunk my Gandhi!

I seem to be a Libertarian and version Ghandi, which is nice.

I think the religious questions made the difference of left or right.

This is what I get for growing up in a European family.

I'm surprised at how few people are in the bottom right.

Seems I'm about the farthest North of everybody except maybe Lantec... and I know I'm authoritarian... I want to control everything.

Wow Kazriko.  You make me want to dust off my copy of The Road to Serfdom.  I feel like I'm not working hard enough all of the sudden.

I agree. I answered "I Agree" on that.  The government's job isn't to try to control unemployment but rather to provide support for an economy that will create jobs.

I've always thought stability, more than support.  Businesses need stability so they can plan and invest and grow.  They need to grow their company in order to create more jobs.  Inflation, or an unstable currency, is instability and is ruinous to job creation.  

I think in this case we probably mean the same thing (though please correct me if I'm wrong).  I'm personally leery of speaking positively about government "support" of business because what people call government support of business is largely agnostic.  Everything the government does can be spun as support of the economy.  Government support can certainly be a positive influence.  But it can also be hundreds of millions of dollars poured into some political clown's favorite project that never had a hope of being realized.  

Stability through stable monetary policy and clear, straight-forward regulations that create an even and predictable business climate.  That's the ticket.  

Edit:  As an aside thanks for posting this.  I sent it to my wife while she was at work and it turned into a spur of the moment dinner conversation as we compared our results and discussed what differences might have led to our different scores.  Made for a great meal.

Wow, I expected Brad to be in the extreme upper-right corner.  

on Mar 02, 2013

Heh. Yes, I've seen people accuse me of being some right wing Fascist. In reality, I only seem that way to an extreme left winger.

on Mar 02, 2013

In reality it's a totally false result. Here you have Ed Milliband and David Cameron over on the right despite them being opposite ends of left and right. I am far right compared to David Cameron yet on here I appear to be very far left...

So where do those fools get their information? 

Given what I've read about Stardock and what it's like to work there... AND the fact your son is a Brony , I'd say it's the farthest thing from the truth. 

Not saying you're an angel or anything, but it's an undeserved label, IMHO.
