Curious - Where do we really fall?
    #2617616 - 04/29/04 06:58 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Okay. We're all so sure where we fall and where most of the other posters on these boards fall on the liberal/conservative scale, right?

Hrrmph.

www.politicalcompass.org
(and click on "take the test")

This will fairly accurately show where you truly fall, not only on the liberal/conservative spectrum, but also on the line from authoritarian to libertarian.

I, myself, fell about 75% of the way to the left and about 75% of the way towards the libertarian end. Almost exactly in the center of the lower left quadrant (which will make sense when you take the test).

Where are you?

This same test has apeared on this board at least once although i believe more.

The other topic has listed about a hundread results. Do a search. It should be instant gratification for you wanting to find out everyone else's results.

pleeeeease forgive my curiousity. :|

I just saw the "world's shortest political quiz" in Pinkie's post lower on the boards. However, I think this quiz is a bit more accurate for a number of reasons. If you don't feel like trying it out, that's fine.

I believe he means the same test you linked to, which has appeared here.

Perhaps it was during one of your "vacations".

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

-2.88, -6.00

This is similar to my result on the smallest political quiz, which placed me all as a social libertarian but slightly left economically.

Economic Left/Right: 0.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.95

Some of those questions are bullshit and have nothing to do with politics.

these questions are terrible. some favorites:

"Good parents sometimes have to spank their children, to teach them right from wrong."

"It's natural for children to keep some secrets from their parents."

"A significant advantage of a one-party state is that it avoids all the arguments that delay progress in a democratic political system."

- surely that's an advantage... doesn't make it a good system though. saying that this statement is true doesn't mean that we agree that a one-party state is a good thing, does it?

"Abstract art that doesn't represent anything shouldn't be considered art at all."

"The businessman and the manufacturer are more important than the writer and the artist."

-both have their place.

"Mothers may have careers, but their first duty is to be homemakers."

politics?

"Astrology accurately explains many things."

"Some people are naturally unlucky."

"Sex outside of marriage is usually immoral."

i came out with:

Economic Left/Right: 4.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.00
