interesting do you feel that the test accurately describes you?
I assumed that you were left of center judging by the ACAB sig.

I am a half a point left a little over 3 points libertarian. This is not surprising to me as I consider myself liberal on social issues.

That's just a whitewash political judgement bodhisatta, it's never so simple. Saying people who believe in collectivism are stupid is clearly a political view in itself. It also goes on to say that people who believe that they are free to do whatever they like with their own bodies aren't racist, which doesn't make sense.

I've done this sort of thing before and invariably end up in the upper centre of the lower left quadrant. Every time what puts me there according to these tests is that I don't think companies should be free to set fire to the planet and run destructive and deceptive monopolies for profits for shareholders. This view that I strongly believe always puts me much further left and much further towards the top in a simplistic scale than I actually sit philosophically.

I have voted both left and right during my life, just trying to keep in check whoever is out of control. Avoiding things you don't want in politics often delivers what you do want. All spectrums of the political sphere can become dangerous and detrimental to society, and given enough time to feel secure in their position often do.

Oh, look. It's one of those tests that tell you what kind of Libertarian you are.

So the more right wing you are, the more intelligent you are?
Research tends to show the opposite.

https://www.politicalcompass.org/analysis2?ec=-5.13&soc=-4.82

You know I actually really like this test. It has really good questions that challenge what authority is and wether its truly useful in situations towards people. If it is useful it needs to be justified why without intruding on race or beliefs simply because of a class difference or a place you were born. Hardcore extremists in the left or right category often justify messed up actions of the politicians they represent as an excuse to combat the other side of politics they do not agree with. Yet being more fundamentally right sided or left in terms of an economic approach to society to wether the abilities and needs of people in general or of the individual are considered should not be a big deal as long as freedom of belief, religion, race, and a right to keep what you earn at work are considered. In short: we need rules, but rights are first and foremost and to each their own always.

Democracy is not a balanced system without its class and racial separations and us being "the least messed up nation in the world" does not make us the best nation in a balanced way in any way shape and form. Competition surely brings a higher standard to life in some form or another if its practiced in a healthy way. But ultimate competition being first and foremost always is not healthy or fair to anyone. Even if we prove by being the most competitive nation we are the most wealthy.

The only thing about this test I do not like is that it does not really allow anyone to post the results of the questions they answered. It simply shows the results the person has after answering all the questions. There should be an option to post the questions asked and the answers each person gives so it can be discussed why as it touches on a broad group of issues.

I like how a simple set of maybe 60 questions can really make a person think about what their beliefs are and how they truly feel about society of course.


--------------------
The point to meditating is to feel the same when you are meditation as when you aren't. To be balanced inside and out. Difficult to do when being aware of breath and sensation. However, not impossible. Feeling ok about yourself at all times seems to be a great difficult skill to master. The concept so simple a snail could understand it. To practice it some of the greatest Albert Einstein type minds couldn't master it.

It's like the trick to human problems is to be even more human. Not less human but as human as possible, only understanding human nature.

Understanding subtleties is hard. What is subtle? Subtle is powerful. Atoms are subtle. Atoms make up everything we are. Understanding subtleties is one of the hardest parts of life.

Research shows Democrats possess more intelligence than Republicans?

I'd think such a scientific conclusion would be discussed often!
