Political compass test

The Political Compass is an interesting test.

I placed in the bottom left hand corner of the lower left quadrant, so I'm a left-wing libertarian (as if you didn't already know that ).

So, what are you?

Lower Right, I am a Right-Wing libertarian (2.5, -2.21). Interestingly enough there are no international examples of this - I keep telling you all that there isn't a damn party that matches my ideology and this "prooves" it (in a wierd quizzy way).

I think they said they couldn't find any examples of it! Well, we knew you were, um...different!

^LOL, thats what I keep telling myself - maybe they couldn't get around having somebody advocate interventionist principles of foreign policy and support Abortion and Recreational Drug Use?

Wait a tick, Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand.

I'm a libertarian leftist, very close to where the Dalai Lama would place. I would say I'm in good company.

I'm about where Paul Martin is on the graph, but my dot is right on the horizontal axis.

Libertarian left, but closer to Mandela. Good enough.

Left Libertarian for me

Economic Left/Right: -6.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.54

The closest one to me is the Dalai Lama.

Of the books recommended for Left Libertarians I have read Michael Moore and George Orwell. I would read/watch The Fast Food Nation if I could.

I think that the quiz is a biased one, it is particuarly difficult to get anywhere near the conservative right, perhaps some of the questions such as "Do you think that the government needs to know about your sex life" (yeah im going of memory here) - honestly, does anybody here want their government to know more about their sex life, actually dont answer that.
