    This isn't specific to US politics but we have no general politics thread: http://8values.github.io

    Ironically according to the test if I were an extreme traditionalist in my societal views I'd be distributist but apparently distributism is equated to nazism these days.

    Bourgeois-world problems.

    somewhat american centric test, though

    As previously said, Trump pardons people when and only when there's something in it for him. Past favours mean nothing. Cohen didn't get pardoned. Manafort didn't. Stone won't.

    All political compass tests are worded like they were written by teenage right wing libertarians who need a healthy dose of materialism ramming down their throat.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    yes.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    So you're a bourgeois narrative?

    we're all participating in a bourgeois narrative, once you realize that the whole thing becomes sort of comedic.

    Don't worry, multinational corporations are working feverishly to make the 1860s real again. With an added touch of ecological collapse to make things extra spicy.
