Subjectivity

The UK Libertarian Party – Take The Test

It must be noted that defining things as extreme or dangerous is a purely subjective activity.

You may choose to define that raging madman in the frozen food section riddling the shoppers with bullets as a dangerous extremist. I, on the other hand, may see him as helpfully clearing the way for me on my path to the toilet rolls. I may be wrong and you may be right, and by an effort, we may get nearer to the truth. The bakery serves up a nice apple tart: I suggest we mosey on over there to discuss further.

    Very droll!

    That test is also highly amusing in its childish simplicity. Pity that there was no question to ask “is it acceptable for six openly gay men, dressed all day in women’s clothing, to live as a free love commune on your leafy suburban well-to-do street, along with their adopted children of darker skin colours, and leave scrapped cars parked on what used to be a pristine front lawn?”

    Yes, the methodology is somewhat suspect. 10 questions, and if you answer them all correct you are 100% liberal. Answer one and you’re 10% liberal. Maybe An Bord Snip Nua can give them a job.
