Political compass test is very flawed

It equates things that should not be equated. such as how you view certain social issues will effect your libertarian/authoritarian or left/right ranking but that view may have nothing to do with policy preferences as is the case with me being a hard-core libertarian with some of my own conservative social views that have nothing to do with my policy preferences.

it also seems to consider racism and hatred to be a right winged thing so the fact that I'm not racist makes it put me not as far to the right which is stupid.

many questions are clearly worded to favour the left

and many questions I cant honestly answer because the real answer would be "neither" or something similar but it frames the question in such a dishonest and leading way.



I still end up in the right libertarian quadrant but I should be way more libertarian and way more right.

Lol seriously.


“Do you think gays are human beings or that the government should regulate businesses? Congrats you’re a communist.”

The way these tests are set up is such dogshit.

I remember taking my first one of these under a little pop-up tent at the first lollapaloosa. It may have had something to do with me dabbling in libertarianism for a few years. Fortunately, exposure to other libertarians on this site quickly cured me of that ailment.

The reality is that if you are an active member on a site that promotes cultivation and use of a substance deemed illegal by the government you pretty much are already leaning libertarian in classical political terms.

I think these tests haven't yet been updated to reflect the growing group of big government liberals who have come of age with legal cannabis and expect the government to continue to legalize or decriminalize the substances.  I think many of the people like you, baby hitler, fall into this bucket and that is why you reject the libertarian result. Maybe a more modern test would put you in a top left favoring total government control with legal drugs.

Yeah you’d think so, but there’s a cornucopia of right wing retardation here
