The temple mount will be rebuilt in Jerusalem and all the nations of the world will be ruled from there. All races, cultures, leaders, and nations will come to bow before the new messiah yet to come. All will come to know the chosen of God who refer themselves as Jews. For every Jew there will be a thousand goyim that will be their slaves as it was ordained by God. Every man, woman, and child will convert to Zionism.

ImageImage <---click on that for correct image. For some reason, the image capture is not correct in the first visible image where it states Fatherland, Socialism, Family should actually be Ecology, Fatherland, Family which is represented in the second image if you open it in a new tab.

You will need a web capture to post the image of the result just in case anybody decides to take the test and is struggling to find the image source.

Yes, that was weird. Yours should read ecology, fatherland, and family.

More on essentialism below.

In social and political debate, the critique of essentialism arose from post-modernist theory, according to which the essentialist view on gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, or other group characteristics is that they are fixed traits, discounting variation among group members as secondary.

In "The 'Authentic, Essentialist, Deeply Spiritual' Other" Linda Smith (2011) writes that "Pedagogically, essentialism was attacked because of its assumption that, because of this essence, it was necessary to be a woman and to experience life as a woman before one could analyse or understand women's oppression" (p76).

Contemporary proponents of identity politics, including feminism, gay rights, and/or racial equality activists, generally take (supposedly) constructionist viewpoints that may still rest on an essential assumption that a preconceived historical 'fact' is 'truth'. For example, they (may) agree with Simone de Beauvoir that "one is not born, but becomes a woman".[31] As 'essence' may imply permanence, some argue that essentialist thinking tends towards political conservatism and therefore opposes social change. Following Rosi Braidotti, Timothy Laurie suggests that 'the "female feminist subject" is not a default partisan perspective inherent in "woman" but an intersection of complex desires and social transformations that exceed any single ideological formulation or identitarian alliance', and that being a feminist 'can only make sense as a relational and social practice'.[32] Nevertheless, essentialist claims have provided useful rallying-points for radical politics, including feminist, anti-racist, and anti-colonial struggles.[citation needed]


Essentialism is the view that every entity has a set of attributes that are necessary to its identity and function.[1] In early Western thought Plato's idealism held that all things have such an "essence," an "Idea" or "Form". Likewise, in Categories Aristotle proposed that all objects have a substance that, as George Lakoff put it "... make the thing what it is, and without which it would be not that kind of thing".[2] The contrary view, non-essentialism, denies the need to posit such an "essence'".

Essentialism has been controversial from its beginning. Plato's Socrates already questions the notion by suggesting, in the Parmenides, that if we accept the idea every beautiful thing or just action partakes of an essence in order to be beautiful or just, then we must also accept the "existence of separate essences for hair, mud, and dirt".[3] In biology and other natural sciences, essentialism provided the rationale for taxonomy at least until the time of Charles Darwin;[4] the role and importance of essentialism in biology is still a matter of debate.[5] In gender studies the essentialist idea that men and women are fundamentally different continues to be a matter of contention.

Once again contrary to the overall American capitalist perspective or controlled narrative it is very much possible to be a conservative rightwing socialist.

For whatever reason in the American sphere of influence in order to be conservative you must lean towards capitalism which just isn't the case at all and is completely ridiculous. I really wish there was a socialist leaning rightwing conservative party in the United States. *sighs*

Here ya go. I fell asleep twice while answering these.

It says this at the bottom.

Pragmatism : politics objectively boil down to looking at where the problems are and trying to solve them according to the means available.

It's interesting you're a regulatory capitalist Mr. Reasonable which is a lot different from a majority of unregulated capitalists that permeates all throughout American political discourse these days with the mantra of deregulation. If I must take a wild guess here I would say you're a classic state controlled capitalist perhaps even a corporatist. :wink:

Definitely not a nationalist which doesn't surprise me one bit being the internationalist that you are.

There are times when all the world's asleep, the questions run so deep, for such a simple man. Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned. I know it sounds absurd, please tell me who I am :D

But then they sent me away to teach me how to be sensible, logical, responsible, practical. And then they showed me a world where I could be so dependable, clinical, intellectual, cynical. They said now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, a liberal, oh fanatical, criminal. Oh won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're acceptable, respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable!

All the political positions on the left side of the test results: Constructivism, Rehabilitation, Progressivism and so on are left wing (in the Modern American sense of term) positions, conversely all the positions on the right side of the test results: Essentialism, Punishment, Conservatism and so on are right wing positions.

So I'm a centrist. There weren't many questions that I could answer absolutely and I noticed lots of grammatical errors along with ambiguity of the question. They should clean it up a bit and have someone proof read it.

The MSM tends to lump regulation with socialism and deregulation with capitalism, but in both peoples minds and the real world, it doesn't often work that way.

Overall, Zero Sum's test results could be summarized as right wing on social issues, and left wing on economic issues.
Wendy's results are similar, but she's in favor of rehabilitation and divided on revolution/reformation.
I suspect women will tend to shy away from punitive and revolutionary violence.
Mr. Reasonable's test results could also be characterized as centrist, altho on social issues he's more left wing and economic he's more right, in contrast to Zero Sum's test results.

This thread needs more revolutionaries since the power structure has essentially bought off all of government. You can't reform a corrupt system from the inside out as the only way to change it is to violently topple it over and replace it. In time this will become obvious to even the most ardent reformists.

Not just grossly simplistic but actually quite intentional in that deregulation is how the internationalists gain control of entire governments. It is their door inside the reins of power within government.

It is exactly why the United States went from a regulatory state capitalist nation in the 1960's to a deregulated capitalist nation run by private corporations in the 1980's. (Thanks to that cunt Ayn Rand and the libertarian movement that is over shadowed by neoconservatives.)

Deregulated capitalism is so powerful in the United States that it practically has taken over the entire republican party. You would think the democratic party as the opposite party would support regulations more but they're equally for deregulation. (No surprise as both parties are cheerleading whores for Wallstreet.)

I'm not sure I'd identify as a corporatist. I think the free market should be free within bounds set by regulation and wouldn't call myself a communist nor a capitalist, but sensiblist because it's not sensible to let the market run unchecked nor be tied down.

I wonder which questions we answered differently. I looked for a list of the questions to no avail.

Yes, women being more emotional almost always shy away from violence. In an ideal world we wouldn't need to utilize violence or war but unfortunately this world isn't ideal where it is necessary to implement both. For now men safeguard existence utilizing extremes so that women can have security, comfort, and peace of mind from both internal or external enemies.

There is unfortunately not a peaceful alternative to everything and women don't like hearing that. I've tried to convince Wendy of this but she always retorts that I'm wrong. 8)
