The US has progressed that far

2018-07-14 05:24:05 UTC  

they parallel so often

2018-07-14 05:24:22 UTC  

i mean maybe it is a US thing

2018-07-14 05:24:43 UTC  

Well dosent help that we have 2 sides. Social democracy vs relligious fundamentalists

2018-07-14 05:24:51 UTC  

Here, not the US

2018-07-14 05:24:55 UTC  

Everyone right of Stalin is on the right these days

2018-07-14 05:24:55 UTC  

but yea it would be more accurate to say conservative and liberal

2018-07-14 05:25:04 UTC  

and the far left

2018-07-14 05:25:07 UTC  

Really far left

2018-07-14 05:25:30 UTC  


2018-07-14 05:25:42 UTC  

i just go by ideology tbh

2018-07-14 05:25:48 UTC  

democratic commie

2018-07-14 05:26:07 UTC  

I dont really care, the only socialism Ill even tolerate is social democracy

2018-07-14 05:26:14 UTC  


2018-07-14 05:26:23 UTC  

even then im skeptical

2018-07-14 05:27:06 UTC  

Though understand here. People compare right wing here to US right wing

2018-07-14 05:27:29 UTC  

So they assume the US is full of relligious fundamentalists that think LGBT is sinful but are okay with cousin marriage and child brides.

2018-07-14 05:27:31 UTC  

alot of people compare to us

2018-07-14 05:28:04 UTC  

its weird cause they often misinterpret

2018-07-14 05:28:08 UTC  

What they dont realize, that the US has progressed so much, that Malaysia's liberal and progressive party is the right wing in the US

2018-07-14 05:28:21 UTC  

Is closer to the right wing in the US i mean

2018-07-14 05:29:40 UTC  

yea just one of the reasons i try not to use left-right cause other countries have differences

2018-07-14 05:30:01 UTC  

And well, I tend to say left and right in regards to the US unless specified otherwise

2018-07-14 05:30:09 UTC  

authoritarian vs libertarian is the more important axis anyways

2018-07-14 05:30:31 UTC  


2018-07-14 05:31:18 UTC  

And dosent help that the current US left candidates are authoritharian, but somehow, the right wing is very libertarian for some reason.

2018-07-14 05:31:23 UTC  

At least according to ISideWith

2018-07-14 05:32:09 UTC  

varies per candidate imo

2018-07-14 05:32:40 UTC  

they're both moderate authoritarian parties, but at the moment the right is less authoritarian than the left

2018-07-14 05:32:55 UTC  

The most authoritharian is Pence.

2018-07-14 05:33:03 UTC  

ANd hes leaning libertarian as well

2018-07-14 05:33:12 UTC  

probably because trump is in charge and he's more interested in getting us a wall than any other changes he might want

2018-07-14 05:33:36 UTC  

Actually, Trumps closest to center I check

2018-07-14 05:33:42 UTC  

Pence is the most conservative

2018-07-14 05:33:52 UTC  

But Trump is the most centrist.

2018-07-14 05:33:59 UTC  

Trump has his own quadrant. haha

2018-07-14 05:34:04 UTC  

According to the site at least.

2018-07-14 05:34:09 UTC  

It floats around.

2018-07-14 05:34:20 UTC  

Populism is right or left wing again?

2018-07-14 05:34:38 UTC  

It depends on the policy.

2018-07-14 05:34:53 UTC  

So more accurate to say neither
