How Fascist Are You?

Post by Bad Dragonite » Wed Feb 08, 2017 2:48 am

QUIZ TIME
Testing your degree of fascism
You are 28% Fascist, which makes you
Not Fascist.

Image
While your political outlook may share a few (or even quite a few) of fascism's fundamental doctrines, it is overall safe to say that your political orientation is *not* a fascist one. Now, you may find this result unsurprising, but in reality, most people have at least some points of agreement with fascism since fascism is really a mix of communism, socialism, conservatism, and liberalism, with a few innovations of its own thrown in. Hence, adjusting for these factors, even though your fascism percentage might seem quite high, there is really nothing surprising about these agreements, when viewed in their proper historical context, so rest assured: Your political beliefs are definitely not fascist.



Yayy

Okay, so your beliefs aren't fascist. What about your implemenation of those beliefs? (Using the royal "you" here; obviously Vgfian cannot implement those beliefs, as he is not a government official.)

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Fascism is a 'might makes right' nationalist approach to government. Fascists gain power by effectively negging their population, and expressing that they need to be made 'great' as they are not currently, and then providing the single option to instill greatness. It replaces personal pride and allegiance with national pride and allegiance. It's not a set of beliefs, it is an implementation. Communism is an economic philosophy. There isn't some sort of binary spectrum where you are one or the other, where these things won't have overlap.

I'm always skeptical of evaluations like these, because their questions and input methods both imply that the question is an efficient communication of context, and the preclude any individual response from expressing contextual preference. Or the simple way of putting it, your responses to the same concept may vary with any given scenario.

Tests like these forego any concept that 'power' is a contextual abstract, 'efficiency' is a contextual abstract, etc. There is little objectivity here, yet these questions are posed as though they can be answered objectively.

This kind of political quiz also ignores the concept of moderation through staggered and dynamic action, it promotes the concept that ideas are static. In concern for economy, for instance, there is not one single governing or political philosophy which may necessarily encourage exchange. Economy is not the static presence or amassment of a single wealth, but the dynamic exchange of wealth and the availability of access to exchange. Dynamic political action which may appear self-defeating, or choosing a leftward policy and then a rightward policy and staggering these decisions, is likely to increase economic activity and exchange. Global economic activity increases, encouraged by evenly staggered and manageable challenges, may increase the perception of opportunity and self-satisfaction, which can be more important than any single increase in one category.

One way that this survey fails this pragmatic thinking, is in how it emphasizes the importance and concept of 'inefficiency' and asks you to evaluate whether an idea is 'efficient' or not without regard to whether that efficiency matters, when efficiency is subjective to the beholder's intent. Politics are obsessed with results-based evaluation. It's the illusion of saying that psychology matters none at all, and promotes vulnerability in thinking which makes us susceptible to fascism or similar approaches.

Good is subjective, but that does not preclude us all from actually attempting to accomplish a mutual, non-exclusive good for each individual.

I am also 28% fascist. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? It's one of those meaningless buzzwords that gets tossed around so often that I lost track.

25% of something bad seems pretty bad to me. At least I scored lower than you guys, f***ing fascists.

Eh we all have a little fascist inside of us.

You throw people in jail, torture them, tell them not to talk back to you and you're a dictator infringing human rights. You send your kids to their room, spank and hit them, tell them how dare they talk back to you and you're just parenting.

The "and hit them" part sounds bad but too ambiguous to say.
