I gotta defend the League! ?

Who could have ever foretold this, I’m going to defend the League. Just a little.

I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of the site ISideWith, it’s a quiz with many questions that helps you with voting, by showing you the candidate who agrees the most with your views. It is told to be reliable, but you may not trust it anyway.

Don’t worry, when I did it for Italy the League was not the first result. Oddly enough, it was Casapound, which is closer to Fascism compared to the “poor” League that came second.

Oh no, am I fascist or an alt-right supporter?

I took the same quiz for Canada and the United States. Of course, I kept the same “fascist” views and answered the questions. Some were unique, but most were alike.

Results show I’m a democrat. LMAO

Is the quiz rigged? If so, at what point?

Should we rely on this quiz entirely? The answer is no, obviously.

By the way, is a temporary ban on ALL immigration truly an argument over there, on the other side of the ocean? I hope not.

 

Jokes aside, though these aren’t really matters we should joke about, the results made me wonder. It seems like politics, especially foreign ones, are seen as extreme.

The truth is that the majority of people are moderate, centrists.

At least, that’s how it is in Italy. I consider myself a moderate too.

The Italian parties meet the needs of the population, meaning the main ones are centrists too. Extremist parties collect very few votes.

However, as the small extremist parties are unable to compete with the big ones, what happens is that radical people will vote for the moderate party they agree with the most. The League doesn’t hold extreme views, nor does the Democratic Party, but it’s a minority among the voters who does, because big parties, by “definition”, have to be moderate.

I bet it works alike in other countries, tell me in the comments.

 

Don’t be concerned about freedom, as long as the Constitution (or whatever you have) is left untouched. Most people are sane, thankfully. You don’t hear them often because moderates tend to not be activists, but they’re the majority.

The only enemy is propaganda, which turns people insane. This deadly weapon is mostly held by the media, not politicians themselves (unless they bribe, of course). The best armor is the brain: make sure people think with their own and have access to knowledge.

 

I somehow admire Casapound because they’re fun and harmless. Unfortunately, the quality of being “entertaining” isn’t exactly what I look for in a candidate.
