Many questions felt pretty loaded in terms of the necessity of markets, government, nation, etc. If it's asking whether or not I want cops to be armed, do they mean "cops" as in "a community that looks out for its own safety" (in the context of Anarchism, this is what would essentially be the cops) or specifically the capitalist cops of many of today's formed nations? I'm down for arming people, especially people who defend a space and community to be safe, but fuck the cops in today's world. They're all thugs for the capitalists. Non-hierarchical organizing for public safety is a definite yes for them to be armed.

Anyway, here are my results if you're curious.

I don't think this test was thorough enough, so take that with a grain of salt.

I think they mean the cops as they are today. An anarchist community that arms and protects itself isn't the cops but i understand the confusion. These tests always have loaded questions

All cops? In fact, even most cops? That seems incredibly over broad, and more perniciously, that is dehumanizing people.

There is nothing pernicious or dehumanizing about the declaration that "all cops are bastards". They don't have to be cops, they choose to be cops. Don't apologize for bastards. They are all thug gangsters for the capitalists. Without their violence, or the support of their "force's" violence, there would be no class system.

Mine was almost the same as yours, except for some libertarian leanings.

Yeah, that was probably the biggest difference between us. Surprised I got so low on Lassez-Faire though, given I generally answered anti-government.

Environmental norms should be influenced by mass consumption and not from an authority.

  • what do you think mass consumption means in this test?

Elections organised by the state cannot question the powers in place.

  • what are the powers inplace that are implying?

I got pretty much what I thought I would, which is liberal moderate. I am concerned with how some of the questions are very ambiguous. For example, “rape is caused pertly by man’s natural impulses.” I, for one, think it’s obvious that rape is caused in part by natural impulses, but I do NOT think that it is remotely exculpatory. It seems to be asking about possible implications, such that it is somewhat excusable, which it is not, and it is possible that it considers agreeing an anti feminist stance.

Also, there are other questions that are phrased in absolutes, and any difference would lead to complete disagreement with the statement even if you agree with most of it, and it goes into jargon on a couple questions.

Mine, I'm happy with the badges I got (anarchism, radical feminism & veganism).

It's not very accurate tho, cause I'm much more radical on each of the subjects than it shows

did you click 'somewhat' and 'unsure' for most of the answers?

Cool, here's mine. Wasn't sure what they were getting at with one or two questions, but I always have fun with these.
