Political Compass

Have you taken the test?

My political compass
Economic Left/Right: -2.88
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -4.77

a little to the right of Ghandi.

Could be, but a search for "compass" doesn't hit it.

"Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: -1.50
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -4.46"

Nic - not yelling. Just hoping to jog someone's memory so they dig up the old thread.

Maggie - I'll look now.

[Edit - Dammit Tony, help me out here. When'd we do this? It was to politicalcompass.org and I swear it wasn't that long ago. ]

YEAH!

I got to this question and after this, I <b>knew</b> I wasn't losing my mind.

<i>One day, science may be able to cure homosexuality.</i>

Remember - Tony answered "yes" because he feels that one day, we'll understand the human body and brain so well that we'll be able to change it - but he doesn't feel like homosexuality is a disease, and he's afraid that the answer was interpreted as though it <b>was</b> viewed as a disease.

Now where the fuck is that damn thread?

For the record, here's mine:

Economic Left/Right: -3.38
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -4.15

It's an interesting test, as Jag said, so I'm happy to have resurected it and given it a separate thread where it might get more participation.

Come to think of it ... for all his protesting this time, dhamsaic didn't post his test results then. It's important we know where he stands, since he's the only one in the Cellar who has officially declared himself in the race for President.

Wow Nic, all I have to do is teach you some economics and you'll be perfect.

I believe sycamore is willing to be drafted as well but hasn't declared.

The questions do seem to pin down where folks are even if they leave a lot to be desired.

Yeah. Considering he's stated "Drugs and Prostitution" as one of his platform planks. Sounds more Libertarian than Republican, though.

Or is that two planks? dham, do you only support them together, or are they independant issues? :-)

The original thread was called US administration restricts Nov11 investigations -- of course, with the thread hijacking we were doing back then.

I re-took the test and went from 2.73/-5.74 to 2.38/-5.33. I guess my views have moderated in the last six months.
