Political Compass '08

I figure it’s been a while since we had a political compass thread.

You can go to politicalcompass.org/test to take the test.

Here are my results. Yes, I am a filthy hippy.

Economic Left/Right: -6.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.90

I make Mike Gravel look like Darth Vader.

Here are the American candidates, and some other world leaders for reference.

C’mon Mr. Wolverton, I know you’re somewhere in my neck of the woods on this thing.

I was really caught off guard with the question that read, “Coming to terms with the establishment is part of reaching adulthood/maturity” kinda hit home for me, although my bearing on the compass is the same as it was a few years ago.

I worry that as I’ve grown up, I’ve “sold out” and become another cog in the machinery that fuels our consumer culture.

No surprise for me, left of center. :smile:  Another happy, commie, pinko.

Hippies of a feather, Eso


I had a feeling.

I can’t tell if you go too far, or if I don’t go too far enough.

I figured I would be somewhere in there :smile:

Economic Left/Right: -2.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.46

I might change my name to Gandhi

I would really like to see what the average canadian scores compared to the average US citizen and compared to europeans.

I never thought I’d be considered so right wing compared to so many others…

Good stuff. I seem to recall that the last time we did this, there were some people that weren’t in the “green” quadrant, but none so far.

How do you post that image?  Im somewhere between Stalin and Ghandi.    I’m in the pink (don’t you all wish you could say that?) 1st row above the green 4th over from the center


You can find that info about the States in a book called “Fire and Ice” by Michael Adams.

If Canadians voted in the US election there’d never be another republican elected president.*[/quote]
