Just for the fun of it now. One more of those over simplified political identity tests. Here is the link:

I am an "Objectivist Anarchist Total-Isolationist Humanist Libertine". Ta-Ha-Ha! That was fun!

Liberal is a political term . Libertine is one who thinks anything goes between consenting adults . You know "Whatever gets you through the night".

Yeah, that test was oversimplified, but it served its purpose; gave me a good laugh. Most of my answers were maybes because, most of them I think, depended on the context of the situation.

It thinks I am a Socialist Anti-Government Interventionist Bleeding-Heart Liberal.

Communist Anti-government Humanist Liberal
Communist and Anti-government are a nice contradiction.

And I went back and changed all my borderline answers and got:

Socialist Anti-Government Non-Interventionist Bleeding-Heart Moderate
Bleeding heart moderate is not a term I've heard used in political debate .

Just a little background, technically it is not a contradiction. All the communist nations out there are socialists if we go by the definitions of communism by Karl Marx, what he actually wrote. The authoritarian socialist phase is necessary to enforce and train the people to run effectively on their own, then when the government becomes unnecessary, it would dissolve and true communism would exist. Communism ideology relies, I think, on the idea that humans will work for the common good all the time; that is why I think communism fails: they overlook our flaws.

My We're both anti-government socialists! I got: Socialist Anti-Government Humanist Reactionary. I wish they have their definitions for all these terms, though...

I like how everyone so far has been either a humanist or a bleeding heart. We should have a new slogan: Permies, the place where people care.

*giggles and rofls* That was fantastic!

Regarding contradictions, I think a socialist anti-government is a contradiction because socialism actually needs a government to function.

That sounds like I'm a member of a politically confused polyamorous junta or something

I went back and answered opposite to what I think, and got 'Objectivist Anti-Government Non-Interventionist Ultranationalist Fundamentalist'.
Eek.
I feel better about my bleeding-heart, libertine ways now...

Is an "Objectivist Anarchist Total-Isolationist Humanist Libertine" compatible with an INTP. I hope I can still live with myself!

This is fun. I had my husband take it. He came out as a "Left-Leaning Libertarian Total-Isolationist Cosmopolitan Traditionalist," which I find really interesting since we almost always end up voting the same way. I guess we vote the same, but for different reasons .

"Socialist Anarchist Non-Interventionist Bleeding-Heart Progressive"

Not bad, I'm mostly okay with all of those labels, but 5 is not nearly enough dimensions to map my political philosophy.

I'd consider myself both an individualist and a socialist. A communist who supports free markets. A transhumanist that chooses to live more primitively than most primitivists. And an anarchist that chooses to live under a self-described tyrannical dictator. If pressed, I can express a reasoned and logical argument reconciling these apparently paradoxical positions.
