Good grief, who wrote those questions, [snip] What a "fair & balanced" pinko survey. :zzz:


Haha

Yeah it is kinda a pinko survey i'n it.

Think I leaned toward left-libertarian mostly because of anti-corporatist/pro-peace views.

quite at the left/down if the schema ... a bit more left and down than Nelson Mandala and Dalai Lama
By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

Honestly if the questions were asked differently I would have come out pretty conservatively. Many of the answer I gave would have made me the enemy of all liberals.

What happened to the Buddha's teaching about having no view? I'm going back to that now.

Economic Left/Right: 2.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.79

Slightly right of center (economically), leaning libertarian.

I think the dead center bulls-eye is probably the best (for economics). My views go slightly right of center due to owning a business.

The extremes have been tried and failed and they look an awful lot alike (both right & left), tending towards conspiracy theories, blaming certain groups, and ruling with an iron-fist with few liberties.

Another Churchill quote/story, since it's sort of related to economics:

Churchill: Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?
Socialite: My goodness, Mr. Churchill... Well, I suppose... we would have to discuss terms, of course...
Churchill: Would you sleep with me for five pounds?
Socialite: Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!
Churchill: Madam, we've already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.

The other version I have heard is this:

Churchill: Madam, are you a prostitute?
Socialite: Heavens no!
Churchill: Would you sleep with me for five pounds?
Socialite: Heavens no!
Churchill: Would you sleep with me for five million pounds?
Socialite: Well, I suppose... we would have to discuss terms, of course...
Churchill: Madam, then you are a prostitute; and you are just haggling about price.
