You are autistic


I was a weak man and became good times.

I cannot think of a single precedent of a society evolving from left-libertarian to left-authoritarian. It didn't happen with China under the Guomintang, Maoist China, the USSR, the Khmer Rouge, Red Vietnam, or any other socialist regime I could think of.

Well, at least I'm glad people realized that the political compass is a meme.




>What was the "October Revolution"?


It would work much better without the arrows OP. In terms of historical precedent it is not accurate; in terms of descriving each position it works faiely well.

How about this one?



It had a dictator before the commies ruined it even further.


>Tsarist Russia was left-libertarian

lol wtf










Even taking that into account, the model makes no sense. There were no "Good Times" that created the "Weak Men" that started the February Revolution, and the supposed "Hard Times" behind the October Revolution were largely the same that existed when the "Weak Men" took charge during the "Good Times". I honestly can't wrap my brain around this shit. How do you shoehorn the history of Russia into this crappy model?



makes sense tbh


The economy is such an important aspect of human life, I wonder why we would even separate economic freedom and personal freedom.



Most people take it for granted that the supermarkets are filled. They don't waste a thought on were the stuff they buy comes from. When they work (most do, but a rising number doesn't), it's usually on a wage-basis, where they don't have to care at all about how the business itself is operated. They work and get a paycheck at the end of the month, and that's it. From that narrow perspective, government interference or even outright control doesn't seem so bad. If anything, it looks like a blessing to have your work subsidized, because you don't have to deal with where that money comes from.

This doesn't explain everything, of course. If anyone is capable of a "global" perspective, it's a leftist, and yet these people outright refuse to expand their horizon when it comes to economic matters.
