Political Compass
    #856567 - 09/01/02 11:05 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

www.politicalcompass.org I found this on Bluelight, thought it would be interesting to see what you guys thought of this. Their basic premise is that the old politcal view of left to right is outdated, and their needs to be separate divisions based on economic views(left/right) and social views(authoritarian/libertarian). There is also a test to determine where you stand on this "compass". My score placed me as a leftist libertarian. Personally, I think this test is somewhat biased, and poorly written. I've always seen myself as economically on the right, but this test insists (on three trials) that I am on the left. The questions seem worded poorly and vaguely. The vast majority of bluelighters scored similarly to myself. Something doesn't seem right. Any opinions?

Economic Left/Right: 4.75
Authoritarian/Libertarian: 0.10

5 spots to the right and on the center line.

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

Your political compass

I didn't want to finish the test. There were a lot of questions I couldn't answer because of the choices. As you stated, "...this test is somewhat biased, and poorly written... The questions seem worded poorly and vaguely."

economic left/right: + 5.50

authoritarian/libertarian: - 3.08

This makes me a rightist Libertarian (no surprise) but I am surprised to see such a low number on the authoritarian/libertarian side, as I have always believed the government has NO BUSINESS WHATSOEVER in any non-criminal aspect of the private lives of individuals. The only conclusion I can draw is that either the questions are rigged or the numerical weights assigned to the answers are off.
