My Political Compass


I was doing a little blog surfing and ran across this at Kulkuri's place. There is a brief test, but I happen to like test taking so there's that. And I knew ahead of time that I would score in the liberal/libertarian quadrant of the test, but I'm more liberal/libertarian than Gandhi. Go me. I'd be wearing my kurta and my dhoti but it turned chilly overnight and cool today. I washed my warm winter slippers two days ago and I'm still waiting for them to dry so I have cold feet today.

Tomorrow I'll do my rave review of the movie, Soloist (it's a great movie). And I'll tell you all about the lunch date. The Med. Cafe gets a mixed review, in case your waiting to make lunch plans at the Med Cafe and can't wait for the full review.

To take the test go to politicalcompass.

I scored:
Economic Left/Right: -6.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.00

I find that as I grow older I get more liberal and far more of a social libertarian. Which should never be confused with the wacko governmental libertarians that think "private enterprise" should do everything.

I got int he same quadrant, though more to the center Economic Left/Right: -5.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.00

... and I had myself pegged as 'apathetic and uninformed'.

Beach, yes, too often we think of the libertarian as one who believes the government should be abolished. No, it means we think the government should check the greed and dasterdly deeds of the corporations and the uber-rich, but provide for the needs of the individual and protect our civil rights.

Jang-chub Ozer, how nice to see you here. I hope you'll return.

You scored around where I did, -8 or so on both. Yet, I like owning lots o' books.

I've done this one before, but didn't have any numbers so I did it again.

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: -7.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.18

Just as we might have expected, right?
