I just took the Political Compass test.
I haven’t taken it in years, but I wanted to check to see if my views have changed dramatically since Yang came along. No, I am still in the same place that I was around the year 2004.
I’m a populist and nationalist. In other words, I am socially conservative, economically populist. I chose the pseudonym “Hunter Wallace” because George Wallace was from Alabama. I’m a Southern populist and nationalist and have never pretended to be anything else since the 2000s.
Why do I find the Chairman Yang meme so amusing?
Among other things, I am comfortable with social hierarchy and authority, economic fairness, social conservatism, peace and prosperity and a RESTRAINED capitalism. Thus, it is hardly surprising that I have warmed to Chairman Yang and see little to dislike about China.
Since 1981, the poverty rate in China has fallen from 88 percent to 6.5 percent because it has smart leaders. The Chinese have become wealthy while AVOIDING becoming just another hopelessly pozzed Western democracy. The same is true of South Korea and Japan. That’s like … my politics.
This guy wants to give Millennials and Zoomers $1,000 a month, destroy Conservatism, Inc. and move the country beyond it’s absurd, hopelessly polarized and dysfunctional politics. I’m supposed to oppose that because he is ethnically Chinese? LMAO.
