Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.31


#3

Your political compass

Economic Left/Right: -3.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.74

Second time doing this, actually was farther left on the economic scale than I originally was the first time (where I spent more time on it).


#4

Commies.

Some of these questions are strangely worded: "The most important thing for children to learn is to accept discipline." Don't you learn to "be" disciplined"? how does one "accept" such a thing? Any thoughts as to the wording?

Anyway,

Economic Left/Right: 0.12
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.38

I seem to have shifted slightly rightwards on the "economic" scale since the last time I took this test.


#8

I seem to have shifted to the right on my economic side lately.

Economic Left/Right: 2.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.49


#9

No surprises here.


#10

Just a couple squares left of "Uncle Milty" in the southeast quadrant -- where I always end up on this test (that I've taken several times now).

Economic Left/Right: 5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.05


#11

Sounds about right, but some of those questions are loaded.


#12

Economic Left/Right: 7.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.67

I am not sure the person who wrote this test knows what libertarian is. The answer that best fits our description is: I don't care/It's not my business.


#13

Economic Left/Right: -3.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.85


#14

That means that theoretically we should be able to do everything we want, government just won´t leave us enough money to actually do it?


#15

Um, not really sure what you are asking. I just answered the questions man.

I believe we should live in a balanced free-market economy (with regulation), where everyone pays taxes (rich pay a higher percentage) that fund social programs so that there is a large safety net for unemployed, social security, healthcare etc. Socialism, similar to Germany or France. Also a society that places quality public education as the #1 priority.


#16

Come on! Surely you proud Republicans can post an honest score that is further right than Orion or myself...?


#17

...


#18

Economic Left/Right: 7.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.18

I beat Lifty and Orion...

I wonder what my scores would've been like four or five years ago...


#19

some of the questions are just too ambiguous


#20


Interesting.
