Definition of Left

Ok, how do you define left wing and how do you define centrist? The Lib Dems are to the left of New Labour to be sure. Andrew Sylvia 18:03, 26 December 2008 (EST)


What "Left Wing" means varies from country to country, I suppose. I'm from the US, and the Lib Dems seem much more to the left than the Democrats.

Perhaps there is a better way to define the topic that isn't so subject to personal interpretation, like "socialist" or "liberal" or something like that.

P.S -- There's another reason I'd suggest we do this, since anarchism isn't necessarily a left wing ideology, if anything it shuns all wings. Anarcho-capitalism is fairly right wing economic social darwinism despite the fact that it rejects conservatism's other core values. Andrew Sylvia 13:11, 27 December 2008 (EST)

Continuing The Discussion

The two countries have different definitions of what liberal is, so I think that should be made clear if you're going to use "left wing". Dkosopedia doesn't seem to have any standards of any sort, so I guess in the end it doesn't matter, but I think it's best we write articles for as broad an audience as possible.


If i'm in the US, I'd assume that the Lib Dems are left wing from my point of view, and from your point of view, they aren't, and from your point of view, via the Political Compass, the Democrats are a right wing party.

I'd also disagree with your assessment that "left wing" can solely be defined by the redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor since you seemed to contradict yourself by not counting the Maoists, or for that matter, any Communist philosophy, into that structure. While their advocates may find common cause in opposing the status quo, Anarchy and Communism are polar opposites (one advocates no power structure of any kind, while the other advocates a power structure that extends to every facet of life), yet they are both "left wing"?

I don't agree with you in regards to the naming of this article unless there's a linking article explaining the political spectrum within the UK. 20:12, 27 December 2008 Andrew Sylvia

On Second Thought

Never mind. Someone reading it from outside your community might be perplexed, but it's not really my problem. Just wanted to make a suggestion to you to make your article better. Perhaps it's best if we just leave each other alone. Andrew Sylvia 03:48, 28 December 2008 (EST)

Obama

I left a message explaining why. --Edwardsorobama 15:06, 1 January 2009 (EST)

I’m concerned too that my warning about prejudice was reverted. I don’t think it should have been. Those who read the critics should at least know what may motivate them. I hope there is more free speach here than on Conservapedia. Proxima Centauri 09:44, 4 February 2009 (EST)

I'm starting to wonder if you're a Republican.

A Republican that starts an article titled Rumors and half truths about Obama?

Yeah right.

The only one around here that's attacking Obama is you.
