I love Watchmen, otherwise I wouldn't be here.

Politically...I will admit I lean towards democratic socialism.

Why the grin, Diego? Can't a democratic socialist be a Rorschach fan-girl? ;)

Haha. Gotta love those sweet contradictions. But don't worry, I'm in the same boat as you ;)

I'm a registered Republican (for "damage control" in the primaries, you could say), but I'm an independent. Socially fairly liberal (pro-environment, human rights, and vaguely pro-choice...kind of more pro-responsibility, pro-birth control really), but morally somewhat conservative. I've got a bit of the libertarian in me as well for individual freedom and people taking personal responsibility for themselves. Perhaps that's what appeals to me concerning Rorschach the most. :mrgreen:

Liberal Moderate I believe. Labels are tough.

I'd say mostly liberal, but I've come to hate unions lately. The whole GM situation cemented my hate.

So DDC is either a Sith lord or a member of the Sinestro Corps?

Used to be pretty Libertarian, but now I'm gone more economically liberal. So I guess you could call me socially liberal, economically moderate. But some days, I just kinda feel like an anarchist.

I don't get how that makes sense. I guess you can your happy that Truman did what he did, since otherwise like you stated, you wouldn't have been born, but you can't say that you objectively agree with Truman and still disagree with Veidt. Personally I haven't decided if Truman made the right choice. Sure he only killed 300,000 (don't know how reliable that number is, but I know its less than 3 million), but his reasons were a lot worse. When discussing this issue most people just generalize that all of the Japanese wanted the war to continue, but the truth is, that many people in Japan were already protesting the war, many of them wanted it to end. Nuking Japan was a political move, ending the war before the USSR could get involved. The whole move was in the U S's best interests. People keep trying to justify by saying how more lives would have been killed, but fact is they still took the lives of 300,000 innocent lives.

With Veidt on the other hand, it's easier to argue that he did for altruistic reasons. He really wanted to save the world. In fact he bombed New York, not Moscow or any other major Russian city, he clearly wasn't doing it just in the U S's best interests (though some could argue he did it in his companies best interests). In the movie he bombs two US cities, for only one Russian city, maintaining that the US gets the worst of it.

I just wanted to see where some people on the forum were on the political compass as it is quite interesting. Basically, what you do, is you answer some really loaded questions and then get a result. (But the loaded questions are mixed, so they are not all loaded to the left or right).

Take the test here: http://www.politicalcompass.org/test

This was my result: http://www.politicalcompass.org/printab ... &soc=-7.18

Boy, those last two pages were easy.

http://www.politicalcompass.org/printab ... &soc=-4.92

Economic Left/Right: -7.38

Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.92

According to the other graphs, I'm with Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, and The Dalai Lama. ...sounds good to me.
