    Mildly left-wing libertarian

    Economic Left/Right: -2.25
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.36

    I thought I was extreme, but wild inconsistencies in my character evened it out somehow. Ah, and some stem from ignorance... no particular opinion softened my choice.

    @ Void - Well, I do tend to have strong opinions one way or the other, not one for sitting on the fence!

    @ Lex - I am going to need some insurance for all these crowns you keep plonking on my head!

    forgive me kindly, but what does that:
    "sitting on the fence"
    mean (besides literal reading?)

    Sitting on the fence is a term used for people who will not choose something either way. Normally you would be sat on the fence while balancing the arguments for or against something before choosing one or the other. Can be used for anyhting which involves a choice, not just politics. another phrase that could be used is Middle of the Road.
    Hope that helps

    A. "Economic left/right: -0.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.59
    Looks like [email protected] middle of the road."

    B. "I've always considered myself Right wing though."

    C. "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe...
    I haven't killed anyone since 1984...
    I've got to kick Bishop Brennan up the arse...
    (My avatar is one of my cats; Winston the Psychocat)"

    If I may boldy say so, (and by the standards of the test frame) you might be right-wing in economic philosophy, and libertarian in social philosophy. But this is not reflected in your test result of E: -0.38 and S: -1.59. How can I explain this obvious discrepancy between your self assessment and objective measurement ?

    I might think that you are keenly aware of the social norms, and might have compensated for the bias when you took the test. In other words, you might have been differentiating your emotional response and rational decisions. Could it be that you chose the rational side of you when you were taking the test ? I don't know if this makes any sense, but I sensed some hesitation in my test taking, and wondered if something of similar nature was involved that could explain the discrepancy you described.

    I took this thing about a month ago on the Hitman Forum as well. My results were more different then than they are now. The questions are tricky since they really don't let you gauge on a scale how you feel about a certain issue. It's cheap and shoddy if you ask me.

    Indeed.
    MJ is less harmful than beer or cigarettes(although I gave it up years ago), a woman's uterus is not government property, and if you're married BE married otherwise as Propagandhi would put it: "love who you want, how you want".
    uh, mutually consensual of course.


    On economic things:
    pro-corporatists wish to continue corporate rule and deny us true democracy.
    They attempt to get regular folks on their side by spinning
    the "corporation" and a regular business as the same thing.
    They are very different institutions and
    "limited liability", what is granted by incorporating a regular business,
    is a privalege, not a right.

    http://www.poclad.org/
    Has done a wonderful job of researching the history of these man,
    yes primarily man- made institutions from their beginnings as
    a tool of wealth extraction in the name of kings (Hudson Bay Co,
    Dutch East Indies Co, all the original American/British colonies were
    companies), to a tool for citizens to conduct large projects in
    the public good, to the almost strictly economic extraction tool
    they are today.

    I tried nationstates.net last year. It was fun for a while, but it doesn't take long to see the creator's liberal bias shining through....much like the premises in many of the questions in the political compass quiz.

    Thanks Mike, you've hit the nail on the head for me there. When taking the quiz I found it hard to understand how someone could agree with some of the right wing statements, but you're probably right - they were phrased by someone who disagress with those ideas.

    I read some of the faqs they had on their site,
    about Kerry & Bush being in the same quadrant,
    or complaints they got stating : "the political spectrum has moved here"
    you should to.

    for the 2nd one, they state that in say Nazi Germany there might have
    been Nazis who weren't for some of the extreme things as other nazis
    and thus make them left of other nazis. someone resisting the nazis
    would be extreme. so they keep their boundaries of political-ness where
    they are.

    to the 1st item i mentioned, i'm not sure if they had this explanation, but
    face it, the US has virtually no mainstream left. people like Kerry and Clinton
    may have been somewhat liberal, but they were not leftists. they push the
    corporate agenda as much as the rest of them.

    but, of course, you could be right
