statistics are really complicated sometimes.. reading and interpreting them right are indeed two very different things.. you have to learn over the years.. so dont worry if you cant do it by.. dont care what others say!!!! good luck :)

The government currently doesn't allow private entities to certify marriages.

That’s because the government has a monopoly on violence. You don’t have the ECONOMIC freedom to unsubscribe from them without moving. The fact that this is not obvious to you is beyond me.

Being able to choose benefits is economic freedom.

It’s also personal freedom because it’s your personal choice to choose which company you wish to receive benefits from.

On the contrary you cannot put the two together.

You’re wrong. The two are inseparable. Who you choose to do business with is a personal choice.

The statement you cited is social freedom

No one is talking about social freedom. We are talking about personal and economic freedom. The statement I said was both because you (for the most part) won’t be doing business with those who don’t view your marriage as legitimate(economic freedom) and marriage is a personal choice(personal freedom). Here’s an example of why it’s also economic freedom. If company A says they will only give heterosexual couples special privileges and company B will give special privileges to both heterosexual and homosexual couples, then all the homosexual couples will flee to company B.

@xKiesix: why, yes, if the statistical tendencies shown in the graph below are wrong for YOUR family, surely the factes on which they are based must be completely fabricated.
on the other hand, without so much as a basic understanding of statistics, maybe you don't make a very good "computer scientist"? it's not too late to go into sales and prove the statistic right...

Are all the commenters really shocked to find out people can sit on both sides of the liberal/conservative thing? Or neither? Or, I dunno, can be unique?

I swear, someone types up a fairly accurate graph of how the two sides act and people STILL get mad because its not EXACTLY how they view themselves.... come on people, you're better than that!

This is still pretty one sided to make the right look bad. Ahahaha parenting by fear. Half of this is BS.

It's not as black and white or red and blue as this pic makes it seem. I fall onto both sides but consider myself left.

Is it me or is something insinuating "Good vs. Evil" here?
I just hope it's the colors...

The author is apparently confused about the meaning of the terms "ethics" and "morals"--an ethic is a set of morals--but otherwise it's ok.

No, you can't separate the two. If you had economic freedom you would be able to choose a company that views your marriage as legitimate.

@StudentOfMan
Can you truly separate personal freedom from economic freedom?

Yes, you can. Look at the so called "non-conformists" of society. A homosexual man can be rich, but he still can't get married. A non-white man can become the most powerful man in the free world but some people will still think he's scum. A wealthy, honest, and peace-loving Muslim can live all the tenets revered by a Christian, but many will still walk past and think he's a terrorist.

An individual can escape some problems with money (i.e. poverty), but that's just one problem for one person. True freedom isn't solved by throwing money at a problem, but rather changing the way we think and feel about our society. Isn't an injustice is still an injustice no matter how much "economic" freedom comes into the equation.

No you can't. Which exactly why I said "it's stupid to look at politics in terms of left and right. Both liberals and conservatives advocate the state in some areas and personal responsibly in others. It's better to look at all politics in terms of statist(down) and libertarian(up). You either advocate the state to do X or you advocate the free market to do X."

(btw, nice comment)

We had these in our Enrichment lesson! I thought the same as tatripp, the right appears as a heartless bunch of wankers, while the left sounds like the sun shines out their arse.

You call liberals left-wing over there? the liberals here in Sweden are the third most right-wing party we've got, after the Nationalists and the Christian Democrats.

"a liberal definitely made this"

Why, 'cause it's all spelled correctly?

As a liberal moderate it looks like a conservative made it, since it appears (to me anyway) to contain a lot of pejoratives of liberals... "tax and spend", "communist". It also doesn't point out the things that the "Right" likes to interfere with.

Question: Can you truly separate personal freedom from economic freedom? Seems one begets the other. If I don't have the personal freedom to innovate and spend my money as I please, such as investment or other business opportunity, then I won't have the potential for economic freedom. And if I don't have a free economy (e.g. not state run or regulated) will I ever have the chance to fully achieve my personal potential to do what I feel driven to do, or aspire to greatness, or ensure others' security? Seems to me the underlying failure of both parties is that they believe they know better than the people and interfere in those respective areas.
