Do you /sci/ chaps every talk about psychology, economics, sociology or other "social sciences"?

>> No.3727206

We sure as shit do.

Fairly often, actually... >_>

OK. I've just been lurking for a week or so and haven't seen nearly as many social science threads as I have astronomy, physics or hypothetical threads.

Quick tally check, how many here are more right wing than they are left wing and vice versa.

Right wing here.

Most social science threads are troll threads. /sci/ tends to be fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

Do you actually mean you're right wing in the proper sense of the term - economically - or do you just mean you're conservative?
If you aren't socially liberal, you're either being unscientific in your analysis of society (a la religious law), or you've been tricked by someone that is.

Fucking libtards kill any good thread. When they have no counter-arguments, they start spamming.

Quick question:

What does being fiscally conservative imply? Just less spending in general or on specific things or what?

>> No.3727272

>>3727262

I've always viewed "left/right" wing in strict economic terms - so I am right wing in the sense of privatisation of most (not all) industries.

I'm left wing in terms of social, philosophical and political liberalisation and anti-authoritarianism in addition to freedom of the press, freedom of information and drug liberalisation. Not the most popular of ideas and sometimes a little hypocritical, but I like it.

Fiscally conservative means keeping taxes as low as possible. Nobody really gives a shit about spending as long as they don't have to pay for it.

>> No.3727286

>>3727271

It would be more restrictions on government expenditure, allowing the free market to sort itself out etc. For example, a highly conservative spending regime wouldn't have spent money keeping privatised firms afloat during the recession. But that is far, far, far to the right.

>> No.3727291

>>3727286

A combination of these two, basically.

If /sci/ is actually a microcosm of the academic research and researchers than that comment makes no sense. Many institutions rely on grant money from government agencies. I don't believe I've worked for, or spent time with any professor in the areas of (genetics & chemistry) that actually thinks privatization is a good thing.

I'm going to assume that you believe that everyone on /sci/ is like you and so you posted that. Projection is the term, you do too much of it.

>> No.3727305

>>3727293
I'm basing that off of answers to identical or similar questions posted in other threads I've lurked in. That's why I said "tends to be" rather than "is".

I'm going to assume that you think /sci/ is a microcosm of academic research. Faith is the term, you have too much of it.

>> No.3727322

>>3727305

How often do these threads show up? In my 2 years of being on this board I've never seen anything more than an even split among the members (usually in the econ threads).

>> No.3727337

>>3727322
Seemed like a lot of them were popping up like six months ago, but there haven't been too many lately. If I'm wrong, whatever; it just seems like I saw a lot more people saying fiscally conservative/socially liberal than the opposite. I wouldn't bet my life on it.

I would hope that I'm right about /sci/ being socially liberal, at least.

grants are actually historically higher under conservative presidents.

Meh, I'm just trying to vent for something else. Your probably right about the standings.

those are all right wing things, leftists are very anti free speech, they have written hate speech laws and they have been abused and applied unequally, the left is authoritarian as they want higher taxes and tell you what to do with your money, and they are socially authoritarian when it comes to affirmative action and giving special privileges to some groups and not others.
