same

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  

ye

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

2018-07-14 05:34:54 UTC  

?

2018-07-14 05:35:39 UTC  

populism is dependent on public demand

2018-07-14 06:07:24 UTC  

Bernie and Trump both campaigned as a populist

2018-07-14 06:08:14 UTC  

Populism can be either Left or Right. It's based on passion and not policy.

2018-07-14 06:08:28 UTC  

Yep

2018-07-14 06:09:21 UTC  

Usually, popularist candidates gain power when people are dissatisfied with the current political order

2018-07-14 06:09:35 UTC  

That basically the U.S. lol

2018-07-14 06:09:42 UTC  

Pretty much

2018-07-14 06:13:01 UTC  

Gaius Julius Ceasar was a member of the populares

2018-07-14 06:13:20 UTC  

His death was very unpopular with the common folk

2018-07-14 06:16:32 UTC  

Just gonna lay it out there. I WILL find every opportunity to add a historical comment to every conversation

2018-07-14 06:23:22 UTC  

History repeats itself

2018-07-14 06:24:38 UTC  

Pretty much
