In continuation to that interesting thread someone started a few months ago...
Where do you stand on the 'political compass'?
http://www.digitalronin.f2s.com/politicalcompass/Do the test, and see where you stand...the results may surprise you a little.There's abundant evidence for the need of it. The old one-dimensional categories of 'right' and 'left' , established for the seating arrangement of the French National Assembly of 1789, are overly simplistic for today's complex political landscape. For example, who are the 'conservatives' in today's Russia? Are they the unreconstructed Stalinists, or the reformers who have adopted the right-wing views of conservatives like Margaret Thatcher? On the standard left-right scale, how do you distinguish leftists like Stalin and Gandhi?"
According to that test...I am a lot more of an 'anarchist' than I ever thought, and I'm surprisingly 'straight and narrow' when it comes to the economic spectrum.
Economic Left/Right: 0.62
I'd like to see where some of the more politically opiniated members around here stand...like DNA, Fury, Rosco, Floman...
