    How Tolerant Are You of Differing Political Ideologies?

    If you are Right Wing, could you imagine yourself having National Anarchist or Communist friends? How about viceversa? What happens when disagreements come in? Do you agree to disagree and try to find common points, or do you prefer to stay away from 'different' people?

    I spend my time with people who have the same views as myself. Having friends with different political views almost always leads to some sort of tension. In a work situation you have no choice to interact with everyone, no matter what their views are, but on my own time it will not happen.

    I'm a libertarian, which means I strive for liberty wherever possible. I'm fond of as little government as can be attained while maintaining a civilized nation. I would be considered a "minarchist". My very best friend, however, is a communist.

    To those who are wary of the the other end of the political spectrum: It is beneficial to you to hear the other side and hear it frequently if you wish to combat it. What he and I do is switch sides of the argument to see if we can argue the opposing side as well. It's helps to hone our understanding of the opposition and our debating skills.

    I am tolerant of other political beliefs, but I'm pretty sure it stops there. The people I surround myself with are mostly of like belief. I don't enjoy hanging out with politically correct hippie go free free tree huggers who are trying to protect everyone's feelings.

    Maybe I'm less tolerant than I thought....
