Economic Left/Right: -1.12
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.38

OK here is where I lie on the political map. Umm...apparently people I shared this side of the square with include Mahmoud Abbas, Pope Benedict XVI and Robert Mugabe. Oh they had Stalin there as well. The only thing that upsets me is that they've put Mahmoud Abbas in the same square as me, I have no idea how or why. I need to go wash myself NOW...

Hisham said...

Really surprising...
Economic Left (-5.38)
Social Libertarian (-6.10)

Why don't you come and join the green leftie square bellow, Wassim, where all your friends are?

poshlemon said...

That's me too:

Economic Left/Right: -5.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.79

hehe. I expected something like this.

Wassim, state-imposed collectivism?

i have consistently gotten the lower left corner around (-6,-6) for the past 6 or 7 years :-p

as far as i'm concerned, you're pretty much a fascist.

...just kidding, couldn't resist after reading the orwell excerpt again.

وسيم said...

Well I guess the motto of this is don't join me to your revolution ;) I might do some massive purge later and install myself as guardian of the revolution!

Onward ya Rafiqa.

Surely as a Fascist I'd actually be on the top right? :)

Don't worry guys, I might be mean, but at least I'm on your side!

ok, seriously, we all need to form some kind of trans-atlantic collective, because i'm -8 economic and -6 social. but even though this is the case, i've been known to help purge political groupings that i've belonged to in the past, of their undesirable infiltrationist elements; so watch out comrades, wassim and i might come and getcha in the dark of night!!

but before that day comes, we have many years ahead of us of party planning, revolution waging, awaking masses, establishing politburos, blah blah blah.

as ziad rahbani explains in "nazl elsuroor": tukhteet, fa 7izb, fa jareedat 7izb, fa... midri shoo.. anybody remember?

anyway, anyone up for stroll along le champs-élysées, avec une cigarette, et une heated dialectic discussion (with hands waving) on the validity of the historic 1973 separation of the trotskyite union from the chicago-detroit new left coalition?

وسيم said...

I don't think we can do that in Paris at the moment. The masses seem to be rising there and we might end up getting purged ourselves! Let's wait till after the "racailles" depose the French government ;)

I'm tyowards the bottom left corner too, somewhere left of the Dalai Lama, a bit more libertarian than Mandela.

Wassim said...

Qunfuz, I like you. For that you will be executed last :)
