there's this thing that classists do where when faced with the societal symptoms of having a class of people who are forced into homelessness where they blame the individuals instead of the society.

for example: people are living in tents on the side of the road the blame is placed on the person in the tent instead of the lack of shelter provided by society

another example: human feces on the ground. the individual is blamed instead of the lack of accommodations as if poor people are going around doing targeted poopings

asking for help should never be something you feel embarrassed or ashamed about

The Political Compass model is based on a right wing premise: that authoritarianism and libertarianism are opposed, that what it calls the "Economic-Right" can sometimes oppose authoritarianism.

The most extreme advocates of right-wing libertarianism are in fact just advocates for authoritarianism of a slightly different kind.

To classify one's own beliefs according to the Political Compass is to classify oneself according to a right-wing model of politics.
