    Still an anarchist pinko it seems. Still don't quite get it though. Could the axes be said to represent x=level of economic freedom y=level of social freedom? Because I did answer several questions with "more control", meaning I'm not really as close to anarchist as the chart seems to indicate, but it seems all those were state vs economic freedom questions, so they probably pulled me further left instead of higher up.
    Economic and social freedom go hand-in-hand. Separating the two doesn't make sense. Cigarette smoking is a good example.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    The Political Compass

    Economic Left/Right: 6.50
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.79

    Quite near Lateralus, actually. BTW, this entire paragraph is BS:

    "The usual understanding of anarchism as a left wing ideology does not take into account the neo-liberal "anarchism" championed by the likes of Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman and America's Libertarian Party, which couples social Darwinian right-wing economics with liberal positions on most social issues. Often their libertarian impulses stop short of opposition to strong law and order positions, and are more economic in substance (ie no taxes) so they are not as extremely libertarian as they are extremely right wing. On the other hand, the classical libertarian collectivism of anarcho-syndicalism ( libertarian socialism) belongs in the bottom left hand corner. "

    Friedman and the LP did/do not have "strong law and order positions," nor are they "extremely right wing." That is ridiculous.

    My red dot landed in the third purple square down from the center.

    So, moderately libertarian, and just barely right-of-center.

    Or: Economic Left/Right: 0.38, Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.62.

    That's a crappy test. "an eye for an eye" is not a policy question. Many of these questions are cultural, so your answer can change wildly on something like "openness about sex has gone too far" if you live in Amsterdam or Riyadh even if you have the exact same opinion. And statements like "a significant advantage of a one-party state is that it avoids all the arguments that delay progress in a democratic political system" are true, but that doesn't mean you want a one-party state.

    I give it two thumbs down.
    No offense.

    Yes, this test is crap. FWIW, it told me I am an extreme point towards anti-authoritarianism, and very slightly towards the right side of the right/left line.

    No, I have not read the Communist Manifesto lately. I used to own that book but I left it on an Oxford to London coach.
