So heres a new one   
   
What do you guys think of the Special Olympics?   
   
I just recently moonlighted as one of the standing LP's at their local figure skating event.   
   
On one hand it was nice to see them participating and happy, but on another hand it almost felt like a zoo. Their parents/coaches were acting like animal tamers and guided their every move, save when they started to perform.   
   
I understand logically these people have the mental capacities of children, and sometimes even less, but it just feels demoralizing to me.

You know I spent time trying to go through one by one and explain how it isn't correctness but I just can't lie. I guess this type of "we don't like the way you are" mentality exists on the right too, I wouldn't exactly call it Conservative Correctness but I see where your coming from. I am for the traditional nuclear family culture and not the swaying degeneracy that is increasing in the West, am I on the opposite side of political correctness by wanting to silence degeneracy? Maybe, but I'm right though. And an eye for an eye.

Nat Soc maybe 2 types, one more extreme that wants to kill all joos and one less severe
Conservative-esq
Libertarian/economic liberalism
Democratic Socialism
Communist-esq
Labour-esq?

Because we don't have that many people here, I'd say only one Nat Soc, merge democratic socialism with labour because it's usually pretty much the same and maybe merge conservative-esq with economic liberalism.

if we had time and patience id go through each question, im genuinely curious how you get such different placements based on that simple test

to simplify it

what do you think about
-corporations, are their interests more important than those of the people, religions or nations?
-superiority of certain races
-"Military action that defies international law is sometimes justified"
-rich taxes
-abortion
-death penalty
-abstract art and art in general
-"you cannot be moral without being religious"
-how far on LGBT scale are you (where do you draw the line, gay marriage, adoption etc.)

there are so many statements in this test id like to discuss with someone on the opposite side of the compass but these will have to do for now

probably wont be able to reply until tomorrow



User avatar #80977 to #80964 - pebar ONLINE (03/21/2015) [-]
>corporations
Buildings don't have interests; people have interest. Corporations are made up of people. An easy way to think about that is to say I care about my interests more than I care about your interests. This is the way the world works. I care more about my steaks being too dry than I care about some children starving in Africa. Saying you dislike corporations shifts you left because you do not understand that capitalism takes this "corporate greed" and turns it into something productive.

>rich taxes
one of the reasons people think the rich are too highly taxed is because they believe they arrange their finances in such a way that exempts them from certain taxes. People are that if you lower the tax rate, you can encourage people to not use these exemptions and you can end up collecting more tax revenue.

>abstract art
I think there was a Q&A on the website about this. If you say it shouldn't be art, it makes you more authoritarian because you think you have a right to tell people what they can and cannot do, or something like that.
User avatar #80982 to #80977 - slightly (03/21/2015) [-]
I do not dislike corporations and agree with what you said, that can't be the thing leaning me left.

the taxes one is too much speculation. as if rich people wouldnt still use the tax exempting tactics even if there are smaller taxes. with higher taxes you can at least be sure of a tangibly bigger tax revenue, at least in the short run.
also, you could make the taxes somewhere in between higher and lower but pass new regulations that make finance arranging illegal or much harder to do.

>art
i wasnt aiming to see if you think abstract art is art, just if you think about the position of abstract and any other art in modern society.
some say its useless and should not be taught in schools and should be repressed in favor of more practical skills and studies, since it has no application in the real world

"If economic globalization is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations."
Globalization promotes most unrestricted free international trade. Trade inherently benefits the traders involved. If you try to make it serve humanity, then you will likely end up restricting trade and making people worse off. If you agree with the question, you are left.

""from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" is a fundamentally good idea"
This is a direct quote from Marx I believe. If you agree, you are left.

"It's a sad reflection on our society that something as basic as drinking water is now a bottled, branded consumer product."
Consumers buy want they buy because they want the item. If you think think you should have control over what people can and cannot buy, then are you more left.

"Land shouldn't be a commodity to be bought and sold."
The economy is heavily based on trading private property. if you oppose trade, then you will lean left.

"The only social responsibility of a company should be to deliver a profit to its shareholders."
The idea behind this statement if companies have a moral obligation to serve people outside the company, then people outside the company have a claim on what people can and cannot do with their stuff. The weakens property rights and leads down the path to socialism and the destruction of society.
This is based on an article by Milton Friedman, one of the most influential economists in the last century. If you disagree with the statement, you are left.

I'd rather pay more for energy and have it non-nuclear. Yes, the chances for a environmental catastrophe are minuscule, but regardless still there. Just look at Fukushima. Just think of the impact if all that radiation had made Tokyo uninhabitable.
But I agree with pebar that fusion is the future of energy.
User avatar #80976 to #80933 - pebar ONLINE (03/21/2015) [-]
Fusion will be one of the greenest and most efficient energy sources once it's figured out.
Fission, what we have now, is still more or less good for the environment as long as necessary safety is taken care of and waste is disposed of properly.

It is way more of a realistic alternative than solar or wind.
User avatar #80936 to #80933 - lulzforsyria (03/21/2015) [-]
Why not?

Environmental energy could be the future but its not nearly efficient enough right now and requires more research and funding.

User avatar #80931 to #80923 - cabbagemayhem (03/20/2015) [-]
If you're in the center you're only half-right. One side is based on rarely understood knowledge and history, the other side is based on hunches and common ignorance. On the other axis, one side is based on the belief that people are generally good and the desire to make one's own choices, and the other side is based on the belief that people are naturally bad and the desire to control them.
User avatar #80980 to #80931 - akkere (03/21/2015) [-]
Why exactly would one want to stray closer to one side than the other? Authoritarianism for instance has the somewhat peculiar idea of humans being bad so they should be controlled by humans somehow deemed "good" to the extreme, but from a lighter perspective you have standard laws and principle that, if balanced with the opposing axis, can have fair judgment done by the people such as trials by jury and the like.
#80984 to #80980 - cabbagemayhem (03/21/2015) [-]
That's why rational Libertarians like Milton Friedman appear only slightly Libertarian on the scale. Rule and order are an important part of that axis that I left out in my initial description.
EDIT: Fixed image
User avatar #80986 to #80984 - akkere (03/21/2015) [-]
In terms of the authoriatarian+libertarian axis, he seems to be pretty close enough to center. What factors drives him to the right, his specific economic policy?
#80991 to #80986 - cabbagemayhem (03/21/2015) [-]
Like I said, there are two factors that play into the Libertarian/Authoritarian scale, so it appears center, but it is really the mashing of two different ideas. What puts him on the right is his apparent lack of ignorance: a well-thought-out economic philosophy, and the realization that people do better unequally in freedom than equally in slavery.
User avatar #81006 to #80991 - redandgreen (03/21/2015) [-]
Being on the left does not mean you're ignorant.
User avatar #81009 to #81006 - cabbagemayhem (03/21/2015) [-]
You're right. It could just mean you have more heart than experience, or that you have a plenty of knowledge and just hate people. I'm sorry, I don't usually like to speak in extremes, but there's just no justifying collectivism. It's the bane of humanity.
User avatar #81013 to #81009 - redandgreen (03/21/2015) [-]
It works in kibbutz though and in cooperative societies. I think the problem is with authoritarianism rather than collectivism.
#81049 to #81013 - cabbagemayhem (03/21/2015) [-]
Now let me be clear, collectivism can work well in small, moral, homogenous communities. I'm only referring to its implementation on a national scale. Such systems rely on force and must be authoritarian, but that's not the only reason it doesn't work. It cannot solve the fundamental economic problem efficiently and distribute limited goods where they are most needed, because no one can spend your money for you better than you can, and no one knows your needs and values better than you.

Tomorrow the Danes commemorate the 70th year of the britbongs bombing of the Institut Jeanne d'Arc, also known as the French School in Copenhagen, during WW2. The school, run by nuns, housed around 500 children, many of them orphans who lived in the school.
On March 21st, the britbongs conducted Operation Carthage, a bombing raid with the sole objective to destroy the Gestapo HQ called "Shellhuset" . For reasons unknown, several britbong bombers mistook The French School for Shellhuset (the two buildings looked nothing like each other, and there were several kilometers between them). During the next 10 minutes, several firebombs were dropped on the school.
.250 people were killed, most of them children, and thousands were left without homes. Almost all the children that managed to survive developed PSTD later in life, and it remained the greatest civil catastrophe in Danish history until the Schengen-agreement.
Why the britbongs mistook children and nuns for nazis is still unknown to this day.

War is always going to yield unwanted casualties on both sides. That's inevitable.

Plus, British planes bombed at night, and unwanted targets were constantly hit.

This was during the day.
User avatar #80917 to #80916 - marinepenguin (03/20/2015) [-]
Still changes nothing. With the way that things like this usually worked out in WW2, bombing the wrong targets on accident was common. American bombers, which also bombed during the day, would drop their bombs if they came under too much fire and thought the plane was going to go down, regardless of where their bombs were supposed to land.

Implying that there aren't going to be unintended casualties in a total war such as WW2 is simply fiction.

I can almost garuntee you that neither the British command, nor the bombing crews, intended to fire bomb a building of orphans.
User avatar #80918 to #80917 - radiserne (03/20/2015) [-]
Lets look at the facts:
- It was daylight, no clouds.
- The french school was about 3 km away from Gestapo HQ.
- There were kids outside going to and from the school.
- It's placed one of the widest streets in Copenhagen. Shellhuset was known for being placed at a very dense place.
- The two buildings looked absolutely nothing like each other.

There's legitimate mistakes, and then there's pure retardation.
Furthermore, there was never really "war" in Denmark, since we were occupied throughout the war. Britbong bomb raids were not common here. And one of the very few bomb raids they actually make only manages to kill 250 innocent people.
User avatar #80920 to #80918 - marinepenguin (03/20/2015) [-]
Then also realise that you are in a steel plane about 15,000 feet up and are relying on very primitive sighting technology. 3km at that height is about 6 inches. If you aren't right over the target, you probably aren't going to hit it. That's exactly why firebombing became a tactic, more damage on the target and less need for a direct hit. Same reason why we sent 150 bombers for a handful of targets, massed bombing raids.

You'd also be completely unable to tell there were children on the ground.

You clearly have no idea how WW2 of bombing tactics and circumstances the crew had to deal with. A 3km distance between targets is literally nothing. Bombers would sometimes level the wrong town entirely because they went off course. It's war. War is hell, get used to the idea.
User avatar #80921 to #80920 - radiserne (03/20/2015) [-]
Its you, not me, who doesn't have a clue. You see, they were supposed to make a very strategic bombing, since Gestapo had taken prisoners and placed them in Shellhuset, so the British wouldn't bomb them. This meant that the British bombers were supposed to hit the the building from the side, so they didn't kill the prisoners who were on the top floor.
Interviews with surviving pilots from the raid, who did manage to hit the right house, said they didn't understand why their colleagues had hit the french school, since:
1: it was so far away from target
2: they should have been able to see the children on the ground, SINCE they flew in LOW altitude to avoid German radar (this was 1945, so they did have radar).
User avatar #80922 to #80921 - marinepenguin (03/20/2015) [-]
Then that's a very different story. I was under the idea that this was your standard bombing raid. Not a special mission with different bombing parameters.

Regardless, it was still extremely likely to be a terrible mistake, and nothing more. Everything is easy in hindsight.

Mistakes happen, they were only 3 km off after probably travelling more than a few hundred. This was world war 2, no satellite navigation or laser guided missiles, only dumb bombs and physical maps.

It would've been better if both were detained for the escalation, but I'm guessing the officers didn't feel like getting caught in a major controversy regarding a large arrest, especially when part of the group holds such shining silver tongues.

It's crazy isn't it. Neither the group of men nor the woman came across as exactly sane. She did seem to be harassing them though.

So how many would you be interested in doing a senate RP?   
   
I think lulz mentioned that the board did this before. Basically have a mock senate where you can make your own political party that people can vote for. I'd be willing to set it up if there's enough demand for it.

Anyone can essentially make a political party or be independent if he/she so desires, but only the ones that make it over the vote threshold will be in the senate. All they would have to do it state the name of the party, the ideology and a list of viewpoints they hold. If a party is essentially completely similar to another party (Both paleoconservative for example) They are asked to merge.

Voting would be done in the method of seat counting. If a party votes yay and has 15 seats they will give 15 votes.
