In TOK class, our class had started our lesson on politics. In politics, few categories separate the political value of the individual. First, The libertarian believes in maximum freedom with minimum government. On the other side, the conservative believes in limiting government size and scope and balance between the federal government and states’ rights. Moreover, the “left” is characterized by an emphasis on “ideas such as freedom, equality, fraternity, rights, progress, reform and internationalism”; “right” is characterized by an emphasis on “notions such as authority, hierarchy, order, duty, tradition, reaction, and nationalism.
In the test, I have got two different results, which are “left-libertarian” and “moderate.” In the first test, “Political campus,” I think my answer is relatively inaccurate. I have been considering South Korea, China, and the United States during the test, which has completely different cultures, economies, and politics. Because I was not talking about a typical country, I think my final result is very inaccurate. In my opinion, Korea’s current situation has very biased political parties, and I think that is unbalanced parties would create lots of conflicts.
For that reason, I think Korea needs conservative parties and need some idea from the right. However, from the USA and China perspective, I think it’s a whole different idea. Thus, I am not sure if this campus is the right political campus for me.
For the second test results, I have got moderate as a test result. Based on my lack of knowledge, I am unsure if my political being is actually “moderate.” If I get more information and knowledge about politics, there’s still a chance that I could change my perspectives.
