But l123, you're NOT the centrist of this bunch. You're maybe more centrist compared to the general population, but in here you're a 'tool of the state' (taking great care not to violate Godwin's law), with latent tendencies toward economic neutrality.

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: -0.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.33

Here you go UT:

Edit: like a number of other people here I don't like some of the questions, they force you to pick an answer that isn't necessarily appropriate.

economic left/right = .63
social libertarian/authoritarian = .56

Dot's in the first square to the NE of the axes.

I have issues with the validity of the questions -- at least half of them didn't give me an option that reflected my true feelings on their subjects.

and as they told me when i said the same thing... we are all being judged by the same questions, so while the results may not be exactly accurate, within the cellar they can accurately represent where we are in relation to each other. er, something.



ever have one of those days where things make perfect sense in your head, but you can't quite put it into the printed word? welcome to my life.

It's a pretty big-ass arrow *I* have too. And look which way it's pointing! Sh*t, I guess I my check to Michael Moore bounced.

To answer your question from the other thread, I would have expected you to be on the right side of the chart, and more libertarian. Something like Economic Left/Right 3.0 and Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.0 Probably because you seem to always end up on the conservative side of every debate.

Wolf is right where I expected her to be. I'm surprised that I'm more of a libertarian than Radar. Most of these lefties surrounding me don't surprise me too much.

Actually no, you're not twice as libertarian as me. Only the lower right quadrant of the scale is libertarian. The lower left are socialists/anarchists. The upper left are socialists/authoritarians...(aka communists). The upper right are right-wing authoritarians (fascists). My numbers put me with the likes of Murray Rothbard, Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman, etc. aka LIBERTARIAN.

Leave it to Radar to make another wonderful interpretation of things.

So you can be either a commie, an anarchist, a fascist or a (sound of trumpets) libertarian.

How wonderfully simple. The point of the test was to define us more broadly than the one-dimensional left/right standard allows for, and it has succeeded! Now there are 4 categories of people! The man's a genius.
