Let's Talk Politics! Here's mine, what's yours?

Posted on Friday, January 29, 2010 in Anarchy

I am an anarcha-feminist. I believe in freedom from all forms of oppression and hierarchies. Peace, love, unity, solidarity, and punk rock. I don’t want to rule and I don’t want to be ruled. I don’t believe in any nasty isms – such as racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, classism, and specism. I am against homophobia, xenophobia, and transphobia. I detest violence. I am a pacifist. I am pretty extreme – I don’t watch violent movies or play violent games. I believe violence creates violence. That any peace held with violence – is a false peace. I believe that health care, food, water, and housing should be a right not a privileged. I don’t pledge allegiance to the flag – I want no nations, no borders. No human is illegal. I want community and people working to help humanity. I believe we have a responsibility to take care of our planet so all species can live in harmony. I believe thou shall not kill. Life is precious and should never be taken for any reason. I can see a world with no war – where people won’t ever want to leave their home because everything they ever need is right there in front of them. A world free of rape, starvation, slavery, and bombs. This world is possible – if you want it. The system is made up of people – with changing yourself, you being a person, you can change the entire world.

With that being said, I took a quiz which I took a couple of years back. When I took the quiz for the first time, my politics were aligned with Gandhi.

Now, Gandhi looks moderate compared to me. See my results here.

What’s your politics? Take the quiz here. Post a comment with your results! I am curious to see what other people are. 🙂

    I’m closer to you than I expected to be! I think I’m surprised because I think that there is still a need for nations and governments, because we haven’t yet tamed the devils inside us as a civilization.

    In my mind, the ideal society is one in which each person rules, and is ruled, by their thoughtful contribution to society on an equal basis: sort of a modern and updated version of Greek city-state democracy. While they’re still the best of a bad set of options, today’s representative democracies have lost their way.

    Having said that, I think we’re pretty much on the same page!

    ..climbs off soap box….

    I have a few questions. Are you pro choice or pro life?

  3. Jess Five says:

    That’s one question. Pro-choice. Take your laws off my body.

  4. Jess Five says:

    Anarchy isn’t chaos. It’s small scale collective organization as opposed to majority rules. Everyone takes part in the decision making process of the collective. The collective can delegate someone to be the spokesperson but they are still equal. No one has power over anyone else.

  5. Somewhere between you and the Dalai Lama – not a bad place to be!

    I got the exact same result you did. Rock on.
