    wait, I probably didn't post this in the right section of the forum, but it's just a test.

    Not that I knew Absurd too well, but I guess up to a point I assumed he was partly joking about some things he kept spreading around ...


    Btw in Germany politics is rather taboo as a social topic and few people would openly express their beliefs and stance like this.

    I side 74% with Republicans and 71% with Democrats -.-.

    I recently became a lot more right wing and nationalistic after spending some years in Germany, 5 years ago I would have been green.

    Interesting. What do you think are the reasons for this development?

    I think I became more authoritarian recently and deviated a little from my former, rather anarchistic way of thinking. That was most likely caused by my field of study. Spatial/urban planning is fundamentally an authoritarian concept, no matter how many democratic elements you include. I see much value in this profession and I have to admit that it's just necessary for professionals to have a certain influence and power to be able to work at all.

    At the same time, I believe they also have to be (at least to some degree) independent from the private sector and the markets, so I'm still as anti-capitalistic as before.

    I second the question above and any extra details on changes in political convictions .... if they are directly related only to living in Germany or not ... but hey, I didn't want to be overly intrusive, maybe some ppl are antsy about the KGB keeping track of their posts.

    I've always sided with the liberal direction no matter where I lived and lately this has only intensified because of my field or study&work.

    I stopped caring about politics a long time ago, even though at heart I'll always throw in with underprivileged people. Ideological thinking is dogmatic and reactionary, whichever side of the political spectrum you're on. Marching in lockstep with others in some shared group-think feels weird.

    that's quite strange, since a while ago you were proclaiming your fascination with totalitarianism, religious fanaticism, and culture wars ...

    I also made it clear that it wasn't the same. I'm attracted to those things on a spiritual level. I'd want on the front lines in an armed conflict because of the monumental nature of the event and the range of emotions involved. But lame social activism? *yawn*

    Part of it is just survival - many people don't go easy on foreigners especially when they are drunk...so I have to be as nationalistic as them if I don't want to be destroyed.

    Part of it is learning - a sizeable number germans I know are very much about "anything german is the best" (they won't say it out loud but you can infer they think like that), I think overall that's a good attitude and thus I try to emulate them.

    Ftr, I'm still socially liberal.

    Judging from my own experience, I can tell that this true. The times when patriotism was a taboo in Germany are over. Actually, I believe it's currently more pronounced compared to other countries because feelings of patriotism had to be repressed for quite a long time. As a strategy, people are praising their country for facts, for example "most exports worldwide" (or "the new pope is a German") and not some actually racist beliefs.

    You might see this attitude as something positive, and rightfully so, but I can't bring myself to believe it.

    Fiscally liberal and socially conservative.

    I like alot of oversight telling people what to do, and tons of money getting reinvested in the lower economic brackets through government spending of social programs and infrastructure.

    Usually everyone seems to take the opposite stance with me.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    Eheh, well, as I said in the first part of my post it does have a negative side - namely that you end up pissing off foreigners (so, I do get pissed off), and that if they start "emulating" this attitude, you potentially end up having more cultural conflict on the long run...thus I don't think it's unequivocally positive. But many other european countries esp. in the Mediterranean have really zero nationalism so it can be "good" to have more self awareness.

    Usually I hear Fiscally conservative, socially liberal from people. I.E. lets not hate people, but lets not spend money on minorities either.

    By minority I mean poor person.

    After a quite similar number of years I have probably only grown more germanophile. But well, I don't see it as a political orientation, only as something lifestyle-related. Imo they're not wrong when considering many things German (products etc.) to be valuable and after a while I realized many of them want to avoid falling into silly nationalism on account of that (I admit initially I was rather sceptical). That mindset ("anything German is the best" or "when you're in Germany, you should behave like Germans") is traceable in less educated and poorer specimens and that may explain even a dose of xenophobia when it's there imo.

    Ahah, doesn't work that well on me. I come from a very organized, rich and educated (you could say almost fascist) place in Italy. When they start whining about anything Italy, I get supremely pissed...and as the choleric I am, I remain pissed forever.

    Imo they're not wrong when considering many things German (products etc.) to be valuable
    Of course they are completely right. But I'm not one of them, so going on how their products are better (mind you - it's not just "our products are great", which they are, it's about "our products are better") just makes me react by saying no, mine are better. Ofc not all of them are like this, but there's a fair share of them who do, especially after a couple of beers.

    That mindset ("anything German is the best" or "when you're in Germany, you should behave like Germans") is traceable in less educated and poorer specimens and that may explain even a dose of xenophobia when it's there imo.
    Believe me, I've seen it in educated and rich specimens, especially when alchool is involved. It's obvious though that most people are nice, just like everywhere.
