Ideological Scales

Real Ways To Reclaim Freedom For America

Ideology – Wikipedia: ~Ideologies are systems of abstract thought applied to public matters and thus make this concept central to politics. Implicitly every political tendency entails an ideology whether or not it is propounded as an explicit system of thought. It is how society sees things.~

There are a number of scales used to measure ideologies, some shaped like horseshoes or boxes, and some are crosses or linear. Most of these scales use outdated definitions, and a major problem shared by all of the scales I have seen is that they place nihilists, anarchists and minimalists together or ignore them completely. For instance, in the popular Nolan Chart quizzes, nihilists, anarchists and minimalists end up at the same place. This is a real problem when discussing a rating of contemporary ideologies based on liberty as related to the origin of the United States of America, because the founding fathers were minimalists, the furthest thing from modern-day anarchists that protest G-20 meetings and Republican conventions with looting and torching police cars, or nihilists like Muslim terrorists. Another problem is the lack of accounting for many of the new cultic ideologies of the latter half of the twentieth century – environmentalism, feminism, etc.

American creeple like to use an informal scale (at least when it comes to demagoguing freeple) which measures ideology based on change (or what they disingenuously refer to as progress).

However, change is a very poor measure of ideologies because change can be both good and bad – a step forward in progress, or a step backward. For instance, Venezuela has “progressed” into a socialist state. This has “changed” a previously prosperous country into an economic basket case, with high inflation, shortages of food and living essentials, and a virtually dictatorial government. On the other hand, a “conservative” Canadian banking system preserved the Canadian economy through the 2008 financial crisis better than any other western country (there were no “progressive” subprime mortgages and so no housing bubble and bust in Canada).

Another way of looking at it is through the eyes of the founding fathers of America. They were minimalists who desired a country where government was to be minimal in size and authority, and would remain minimal (no change). Did this make them fascists? Hardly. (More later on minimalism and fascism.)

This idea that freeple are resistant to change (or progress) is a misreading of freeple. Actually, freeple are only resistant to change that takes away freedom – the change that creeple often desire. So, as a more useful measure of ideologies we will design The Paranoid Quiz Ideology Scale as an ideological measure of freedom.

How American society sees freedom:

Freeple love freedom. Sheeple fear freedom. Creeple despise freedom.

Creeple are alpha-paranoids (autocrats): Creeple pro-actively believe that a fear-free society can only be created by a top-down collectivist subjugation of all citizens (at almost any cost to freedom) that must be coerced through authoritarian laws, regulations, intimidation, ridicule and propaganda, and the chaos of corruption, libertinism, and the perverted moral code of political correctness. Because creeple masquerade as pro-freedom, they deeply resent being exposed as anti-freedom – also known as an affliction of Ameriphobia.

Sheeple are beta-paranoids (sycophants): Sheeple fearfully agree with creeple goals and tactics without recognizing the cost to freedom. Because sheeple naively believe that they are acting in defense of freedom by supporting the autocratic and chaotic tactics of creeple, sheeple are at first ashamed to realize that they are a sheeple, and are then relieved to become a freeple.

Freeple do not have a paranoid attitude (individualists): The founding fathers of America were the first freeple. They desired to create a country based on individual liberty within a civil society of minimal laws, strictly enforced and supported by an ethical code of moral values to produce as high a percentage of freeple in society as possible. Freeple are proud to be freeple and proud that America has always stood for freedom.

(Of course, because few things in society are absolute we are talking principles here – meaning that there may always be rare exceptions. A freeple can occasionally produce an attitude that may be sheepleish, or rarely, creepleish. And a sheeple can occasionally display a freepleish attitude, and certainly a sheeple can very easily act like an autocratic or chaotic creeple, however, the goals for each respective ideology remain intact.)

A look at history illustrates that creepleism and sheepleism are essentially offshoots of secularism. Secularists do not fear God, so they fear mostly everything else instead. The few sheeple who profess to fear God actually fear everything else even more. When push comes to shove, they will always side with secular creeple.
