    You're thinking of a debate, not an argument. And no, I'm not really debating because I don't really care to justify my views much. You might, and others might, but how often is it successful?

    All it leads to is various examples. Then how do you show how those examples are typical and just random oddballs? If you're trying to qualify something (at least with any success) you have to show that those examples are the overwhelming majority. You could show me thousands of examples of 'traumatized' kids because they were spanked or slapped when they were out of hand. What you might see as poor kids who could have had a better life, I would likely see as mostly shitty kids with unlucky parents. Then we continue on to justify what we see differently, and it goes on and on, and gets no where except people might have a different disposition to one another in the end.

    No, a debate is generally a well behaved discussion, and argument is something you do when angry. There is a difference.

    That wasn't directed at you, there were just several posts before I got around to pushing the button. I added the quote from Wherewolf to clarify it.

    No one expects arguments/debates/whateveryouwanttocallittoactlikeyou'renotarguing online to go anywhere normally.

    Just note that if you're not willing to back up your statements, why have a point in the first place?

    By your first point, it really doesn't matter whether anyone backs it up anyway. The entire point of this thread was to show your political views, not defend them. That's why.

    And that has correlation with spanking your children how?

    This thread got majorly offtopic, but that's no reason logic shouldn't apply here.

    I didn't intend it to have correlation with the previous discussion. We moved on from that a while ago.

    I've taken this test some time ago and concluded it was more or less inaccurate. I don't believe in democracy, uncontrolled immigration and I consider myself a believer of the importance of national values, but I don't agree with corporate ruling or racial / national superiority despite that. I think I'm more right than left, all in all.

    Yet, it placed me among the ranks of known communist leaders.

    Interesting. I usually just refer to myself as a nationalist and I thought I was going to get national socialism or a similar ideology as my result, considering some of my answers.

    I can't say for sure whether or not this is very accurate. I lacked a thought-through opinion on many of the quiz's questions.

    This is comparable to ghandi, I suppose.

    Seeing how I'm a leftist nationalist, I really can't see why that wouldn't be possible. Of course I don't agree with everything national socialism stands for, but I think this applies to most persons (such as communists not agreeing completely with all the teachings of communism).

    They probably should get some better comparison people, while saying someone is like Ghandi is generally positive, saying someone is like the Nazis is a very negative connotation.

    Saying that someone is like Hitler politically is not necessarily negative. For example: Hitler created more welfare than anyone else ever had under a reign as short as Hitler's.

    Oh and please refrain from using the concentration camps argument. Them camps had little nothing to do with Hitler's economical and social politics.
