An axis of “Communitarian” on top and “Liberal” on bottom is confusing to me. The standard political compass has “Authoritarian” on top and “Libertarian/Anarchist” on bottom. Maybe all they have in common is being in a grid format? Or is this a new play on words? Word games can get tricky.
This is my first results from the political compass, I took in 2014. Taken 2/3 times since, I’m always in that zone. Hippie, do under others, peacenik type basically.
But I’ll look at that quiz you took and if it’s not too long I’ll take it and compare.
“It almost never ends well when the government gets involved in business.” These feel like trick questions. In good times, private enterprise dominates. In austere times, government dominates. I’l try my best but these questions feel guided.
It was very difficult to answer a lot of those questions because of how they were worded. I had to leave a few in the middle. It guides me towards the right side with each questions. To my left-wing ears, the questions felt like right-wing concerns, not even questions that I even ask most of the time.
More information here: It was an illegal bet by a wealthy American landowner that caused the final slave ship. The failure of the US government to enforce its own laws is what justifies the compensation as it is the US government that is responsible for enforcing its own laws and failed to do so in that case, allowing the illegal transfer to take place.
The wealthy landowner being more clever than the US government does not get the US government off the hook for failing to enforce its laws.
The ship landed on US soil. Slaves were transferred to US soil. The wealthy landowner is not a government.
