Not much overlap between Frank's and fan's interests on this topic.
Not necessarily. What did you want? Everyone to give Frank a medal? Demand that he posts his dissertation in this thread?
We all know that if frank recorded himself singing his dissertation "a Capella" someone would buy it.

It's where I learned how pathetically totalitarian and ignorant some people on the left are.

I notice that a lot of left wingers think that right wingers are evil and right wingers think left wingers are misguided (obviously not all of them).

I wouldn't bother wasting your time with any of the outfield players, to be honest. If you want a surefire considered and sensible viewpoint, the keeper is always a safe bet.

I did think that, but then I thought its just a silly idea that shouldn't be taken too seriously. If I've offended anyone I apologize in advance.

Left and Right are just places to stand on the continuum of wrongness.

If you believe the 'the State' should either tell people exactly what to do, or provide absolutely everything for them, then you're misguided. If you and your colleagues try to make these things happen by force, then you're evil.

Ah, takes me back to my Constantly Furious Libertarian blogging days.

It all starts to make sense to me once you move away from one dimension. Left/Right (the economic scale) . If you add in a second dimension of Authoritarian/Libertarian (social scale) then the Left/Right thing becomes less significant, I am slightly left of centre but quite strongly libertarian.

There is a great site that places various people on a plane according to both factors. e.g. Fascists are not actually that right wing just extremely Authoritarian. Most of the trouble starts when you try to force people to adopt your view of the world, rather than the Left/Right position. http://www.politicalcompass.org/analysis2

There is also a quiz where you can find out where you sit on the political compass. http://www.politicalcompass.org/test

Couldn't agree more. However both left/right and authortarian/libertarian scales do kind of meet each other at both extremes which, I makes quite a lot of sense.

Its society putting things in boxes I guess. It's like when you look at a model (scientifically that is), a model is a simplified explanation to something, but it isn't actually the true reality.

Frank, while you were at university did you put music on the back burner or were you in a band and playing gigs throughout your time there?
