    Do others think that this kind of tests can't describe at all from political perspective?


    How many think that there should be a 3. axis - progressive/nonprogressive?
    Since someone can be quite liberal and be against technical progress and social conservative could like it to some degree.
    What is very large factor if you ask me.

    Well no, it obviously cannot. 3 axes isn't even close to satisfying. There are just too many details and variables on the subject for a test like this to be comprehensive.

    Economic Left/Right: 1.00
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.18


    Ah, my confirmed moderate status.

    Though I have strongly held views at most ends of these axes (less on the authoritarian end) that would come across as perplexing to the opposite persuasion.

    What did you think of the "single issue" in the 1860 election?

    What seems really complex and multifaceted to one generation, may seem black and white / cut and dry to a future one. Hindsight is 20/20.

    Look how much guns helped in Waco, Texas. In an age of mass media and an ever-growing bureaucracy, I would wager that there are far better ways of revolting against the government in this technocratic age than by getting thousands of innocent people killed in gun fights. Hacking into government computers is a more intelligent and effective way of disrupting totalitarian regimes than by firing rocket launchers. India was freed from the British and America purged (largely) of its legislated racism through nonviolent means.

    P.S. For any FBI out there, I was born in America, am a citizen, live here, love it, and would never do anything illegal.
    The basis for your opinion is that, fundamentally, the government won't become totalitarian enough to warrant resistance. History is not your friend on that position.

    There are tragedies in the hundreds or thousands related to legal gun ownership, maybe 10s of thousands to illegal gun use. But only totalitarian government abuses have led to tragedies reaching to the taking of millions of innocent lives.

    Centrist, I suppose, more to the right than the left and a bit more than that to the libertarian side.

    "If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations."

    Flawed from the very first question. Corporations are composed of individual human beings. Yet another example of the non-existent entity "corporation" presumed to be in battle with the other non-existent entity "society". (Although, these days, to distance themselves from the USSR and other socialist disasters, limp-wristed campus-crawling idealists prefer to employ the term "humanity".)

    There was no "single issue" in 1860. That's gradeschool BS.
