Political Compass Test

The Political Compass

Pretty entertaining. I'd be interested to see everyone's results.

7.0,-2.0 for me.

So, purpleoscar, the liberals' bete noire on this forum, the punch-bag for the likes of BVS and Anitram, is, in fact, as it turns out, only very slightly to the right on economic issues, and left leaning on the libertian-authoritarian front.

Hilarious.

I took this awhile back and I was extremely moderate (lib/auth within 1 point of 0 and right leaning by several points). It's funny how my views have changed as I have aged and done more research. I was always told that with age I'd get more conservative/rightist.

This chart really seems to show the illusion of political choice in america, haha:

Just like the last few times this thread has cropped up over the years. I really don't think of myself as that radical either.

Green area - bottom corner, left.
It didn't surprise me. It matches the idea I have of myself.

Imagine if you hadn't answered strongly disagree for "Possessing marijuana for personal use should not be a criminal offence."

The one thing we all appear to have in common is that none of us are authoritarian. Whether left or right, we don't want anyone telling us what to do!
