    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    I'm not.

    OT: I'd like to think I'm moderate left. From what I've experienced, the farther you are from the middle, the more sure (and proud) you are.

    Edit: Damn you and your sneaky text!

    I'd assume the majority of gamers (because they a predominantly younger people) are likely to be socially liberal and then no particular end of the spectrum financially, though, by and large, it seems to be typical that Europeans are more in favour of the welfare state than American gamers. I suspect people's position on financial politics is shaped by their luck in life, so far, and the living standards that they are used to (High - assume everyone can achieve it with hard work, so more Pro-market, Low - assume its difficult to climb the income/job ladder so more in favour of Social initiatives).

    I'm socially libertarian (on most issues, thinking drugs and stuff should all be legal, but taxed to hell and back) and financially, Keynesian Social Democrat (In a perfect world, I'd probably by an Anarcho-Syndacalist though).

    Far left and socialist on both the American and European scale.

    I'm not really sure where to put myself. I'm very conservative about traditions and Nordic culture, yet I'm also very liberal about private companies and a competetive and free market, very socialist when it comes to a tax-paid public sector and society safety nets, very communist when it comes to the state leading the way forward (such as space exploration and making sure companies aren't up to no good), and very libertarian when it comes to personal freedom.

    I guess I would call myself a liberal viking-Stalinist.
    I'm a European federalist. Now you know.

    I'm an independent. I will agree with either side depending on the topic, I tend to vote Dem in presidential elections just because I want to see the shitstorm that will happen if my state pings blue on the map.

    According to that test, though I still don't associate myself with any party.




    Here's the test for anyone interested: http://www.politicalcompass.org/test

    Swedes are grown up in a society where the state takes an active role in the public sector, not to mention free education and health care, thus there's a certain trust for the state, but at the same time they want personal freedom and don't want the state to completely spoonfeed them.

    I dont really fancy Political Compass - its created with Americans in mind as obvious from the questions which means that different questions will have different meanings depending one who reads.

    Like "Has the invasion of privacy in the name of counter terrorism gone too far?" - It hasnt been invaded as much in my country as in others yet the outcome from answering it would remain the same.
    Furthermore i contest the notion that the EU governments are placed where they are on it.

    My main complaint is that it lacks a neutral option, as there are a few questions I 'fence-sit on', as it were, like the unemployment vs inflation one.
