I hate these things. like what does this mean? "If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations."

Obviously humanity, but opinions will differ as to whether a conpletely free market will serve that interest or not. So how the hell do I answer that?

And literally every question is like that.

Should I answer honestly or try to predict what the underlying meaning of the question is?

Some questions have nothing to do with political philosophy and can be answered several different ways by people who completely agree with each other and have wildly varying results, but here it is

Speaking in third person is for narcissists and those of inferior intellect. You may want to stop doing it, if you'd like to disguise those two facts.

I hold an official DDO wide political compass test every 6 months to see where the site as a whole generally stands. Feel free to view the pictures in my profile to see an overview of DDO in the past year and a half.

Yeah. I know. I should also keep those thoughts to myself. I'm getting better at it, but still a bit too impulsive. I think getting rid of those judge mental thoughts from the get go, may help. I'm not sure how to go about doing that, though.

I also found that I use the word "though" a lot, but nobody ever calls me on it, and It always just sounds right.

Btw you might see something in Mirza's truth box thread when he eventually posts it later, *blushes*.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

I don't think the test is accurate because a lot of the questions aren't even relevant. Plus, I doubt when they rank politicians they do it based on those questions. I wish they based it off of more relevant issues. I mean the vague philosophical questions are useful, but a lot of the questions are irrelevant.

I've move so much on the political compass since I've been here.

First Compass Test 3 years ago: Social=1.93 Econ=-1.27
Now mines Social: 1.66 Econ= 8.88.

What a move.

Yeah because according to that test the 2012 canidate I most agreed with was Gary Johnson, and I HATED his policies.
