Quote from: "SSY"
Your political compass

Economic Left/Right: 0.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.46

There are some serious hippies on here.

Haha.  I actually thought the test was rigged.  I don't even see how an atheist could get the score you got SSY.  I know some straight up Christian Right Wing US republicans that would likely end up in the green quadrant...or close to it.

edit: I took it again entering all the answers I think that a Right Wing US Christian would, and I ended up almost exactly in the middle.  I'm no goddamn hippie.  I know because my hippie friends tell me so all the time.  The test is garbage imo.  There isn't even a "no opinion" option for the questions.
That's odd.  I tried entering answers I thought a U.S. Right Winger would have, and ended up fairly far into the blue quadrant.

Where do I fall on it? I practically fall off it:

Economic Left/Right: -8.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -9.54
Turns out I lean more to the right than I thought.  :hmm:

Either I answered one wrong, or my antiauthoritarianism overrode my anticapitalism on some particular point.

Nothing odd about it.  I'm just a moron.

It might be...it tends to put people into the libertarian quadrant and the libertarians promote it as a good way to figure out your political views.

The questions on the test aren't anywhere near rationally worded.  It's as if you agree you must either be a super fundie or posting from a hippie commune.

I find it mistifying that in this age of information, some people still deny the scientific history of our existence.
