On this scale, I am at Economic Left/Right: -8.38, Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.74 , for what it's worth.

yay,i am a communist!

Communists are still more right wing than I am Wink

I think that when Romanians come to Western Europe they get more left wing quick, at least if they're students or some such. A good friend of mine at university, from Bucharest, went from 'I wouldn't let my kid be anywhere near gay people' to 'I think same-sex marriage should be legal in every country' within about two weeks of getting to the UK. As a social attitudes example.

Ah, my anarchist comrade.

My problem with these tests is that there's no "Don't give a crap" button. I'm forced to agree or disagree even if, deep down, I really don't care one way or the other.

In this test in particular there were several questions that made assumptions that I found to be troubling. "You cannot be moral without being religious." What if my religion is simply a definition of a set of morals? If my religion is "Bill and Ted-ism", then the extent of my religious law and custom is "Be excellent to each other and party on, dude!" Anyone that does that belongs to my religion, whether they know it or not. What if I reject the very notion of the existence of objective morals with a rigid code and think "to every thing there is a season and to every purpose a time under Heaven"?

"The businessperson and the manufacturer are more important than the writer and the artist." What if I think that a machinist and a sculptor are the same thing?

"The prime function of schooling should be to equip the future generation to find jobs." Isn't teaching children to think critically and apply reason to extrapolate future predictions based on historical happenings (y'know, the scientific method) equipping them to find jobs?
In the political compass website i'm here:

Economic Left/Right: -5.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.92

I wanted more types of answers. Some questions are more complex.

From Types of government , what is more useful, the cube or the 9 axis star diagram of the same article?
