Where do you fall?

Near Stalin? Near Thatcher?
Near Gandi? Near Bush?

I'm actually in the very far corner of left libertarianism. Heh, there are no famous people even close to me.

Glad to see this site is still in business. They had some new questions, but I still wound up in the same place as before, a little southwest of the origin, but not too far.

There are, however, questions where the phrasing is bad.
For example, by making rehabilitation vs. punishment into the big issue when mapping attitudes toward criminals, one disregards that some might actually regard the safety of the general public (by removing a dangerous individual) as more important than either of the offered alternatives (a fourth concern might be to deter others from doing similar acts in the future).

Around the same place as before, close to the center, always more right than authoritan.

There are some really crappy questions in this test, like this: There are no savage and civilised peoples; there are only different cultures. Can't there be both? And what exactly does one's view on abstract art have to do with politics?

Anyway, I got:

Economic Left/Right: 3.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.85

Which I think is a little different than last time, though still in the same quadrant. Interestingly enough, not a single person on the international chart is even in the same quadrant as me. Great to know that not a single world leader represents my interests.

IIRC something like -3.5 and -3.5. No surprise.

Townsend I thought your color code was for red republican, blue democrat, green environmentalist... And you addressed your posts (AFAICT) accordingly. Was that intentional?

That doesn't make any sense. He got me and Anttech mixed up. I'm the enviromentalist, he's the democrat. I hate democrats.

The colors were intended to be politically symbolic but I wasn't trying to line them up with anyone...

I don't believe you. I'm a democrat, and we have a fledgling romance.

:rofl: You're only a democrat out of necessity. We all know if you had your way you'd vote Green.

P.S. Besides we already know you don't date short people. And I don't date people who wouldn't date me, so :yuck:
