Political opinions

browsing this site gave me some impressions, but i though i'd ask directly to see how much they hold water.
which side do you support more? socially, economically... idk, whatever. just the first thing that comes to mind

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • political sides are a government tactic to divide and instill more hostility against your fellow people and to discourge working together

  • Libertarian when it comes to government.. i prefer local government to regulate local areas and federal government to have very little involvement. This way people that want things run a certain way will have that community and in theory everyone should get along. Why should I care what they do in California if my community does it different? And if you dont like how my community is run you can go to where you do like it. Strong federal governments work well in a small homogeneous country, not a big one.

    I also think kids are the most important thing in your country you have to raise them to be good productive people because they will be running the ship when we die. Not enough gets invested into the children. We need to encourage people to have kids and be good parents. Make it a big part of our culture like Asians do.

  • In terms of US political standards, this site is overwhelmingly right leaning. There's only a few genuine leftists on the site; myself included. And even I'm more moderate than most of my own party.

    A lot of the liberal posts on the site are overexagerated satire/trolling for the sake of trolling.

    • That's the thing. Actual progressives points dont sound like what a normal person would consider an issue. Sounds like trolling for the rest of us. There might very well be a few progressive users on here. It just sounds like trolling to us normal folks.

  • Why does everyone on IIN think Left = Liberal and Right = Conservative ?
    If you’re a libertarian you’re a liberal.
    I beg of you people to stop looking at “political compass memes” on Reddit.

    • Sorry babe. Liberal and libertarian are two different things in the US.

    • Not in this modern environment. If you are where obama was in 2008 you are with the far right now.

      The left has gone batshit insane.

      Unless you are a hippy living in the woods in a commune you are considered to be right in america.

      • Obama was always on the right.
        He was a warmonger and a capitalist, pro-police state, pro-corporate interest, tell me, what did Obama ever do for the people ? He was a puppet. Just was a very good speaker.

        The left has not become more left in America. You saw one meme from Elon Musk that said it did.

        The conservative and auth left hated hippies. Hippies are anarchist. Liberal Leftists. They’re morons. Communes are libertarian - it’s a lawless separatist movement which does nothing but say “Do whatever you want to everyone else Government ! But not me !”. It’s a cop out, and highly unrealistic. It’s LARPing.

        Malcolm X had a great understanding of the deceitfulness of “Liberals”.
        “ The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative. Both want power but the white liberal has perfected the art of posing as the Negro's friend and benefactor; “
        He spoke on account of racial issue, but I believe it is very easy to apply the same understanding for how Liberals claim to be for the working class, and any other minority group.

        Watch the same Liberal “Leftists” applaud Bezos for his $4000 given for employees to go around the abortion ban - the same man who won’t pay his employees his worth and relies on exploitative outsourcing. This is not Leftism.

        Slavoj Zizek does a great talk on Liberalism as hypocritical against Leftist theory as well.

          • You’re more liberal than I am. Did you miss the entire point of my post where I’m completely anti-liberal ? What are you even talking about ?

    • Most are American or British and those are the party standards. But really far left is communism and far right is anarchy. Most politics lean towards authoritarianism vs libertarianism to some degree.

  • On the right I would say libertarian but there are things I don't agree with like legalizing all drugs (screw tweekers) and legalizing prostitution America has a bad enough STD problem already. I agree that Republicans are completely useless but the left has plenty of bad ideas like limiting speech.

  • Libertarian but for all intensive purposes right.

    I would be more accepting of leftist positions if they were less idealistic and had actual god damn plans for once. Example green energy. The smart solution is never the smart solution. Nuclear plants are the greenest energy we are going to get currently and the democrats hate it. This exemplifies liberals "forward" thinking. Have an idealistic plan without ANY planning beforehand. You can win my vote by giving me a "plan" get shit done.

    That doesnt mean I love Republicans. They have been a bunch of do nothings for as long as I remember. Just that Republicans arent suggesting anything that will cripple the economy or make things worse.

    • Don’t forget that you think you have the right to control a woman’s body!

      • And you think that women have a right to murder their children.

        You see, your statement is about as unreasonable to me as mine is to you. It's not going to get you anywhere in any argument.

      • You misunderstand. I dont think women who are pregnant have the absolute right to kill their unborn child due to an inconvenience.

        It's not about control of women. It's about acknowledging the rights of the unborn baby. Something that all Libertarians need to draw a line on at some point. My line is where most European countries are 15 weeks.

        • I think you have an obsession with taking women’s rights Bc you can’t have a baby yourself.

            • I just think you’re obsession with pregnant women is fucking weird. Have you ever thought that maybe there’s a reason why you specifically, can’t reproduce? Maybe you shouldn’t be raising kids. 🤷🏾‍♀️

  • I’ll just pick one because it’ll make me more relatable as a people.

    Uh...um...left...yeah I pick left.

  • I used to identify as Libertarian, but I'm against all drugs being legal due to the crimes certain drugs cause and other things don't line up. So, I'd say slight right politics but non-authoritian.

  • I can't support either. All both sides do is look for more reasons to divide us without actually talking to each other. Too many assumptions are made based off memes and troll comments.

  • Fuck politics, fuck the government and fuck laws. I am an anarchist. I believe there should be no laws apart from the obvious (murder, theft, and forcing someone to have sex with you). Or at least some certain laws need to go or be updated to a more individualistic way than a collective one.
