my scores were:

Economic Left/Right: -5.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.51


i'm close to the dalai lama and nelson mandela.

    That was fun! I'm glad you posted it on the main board, Webjockey, because I don't frequent this board. It covers so many things that we have discussed on these boards!

    Economic left/Right -9
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian -8.51

    Maybe I am living in the wrong country. :cry: Or I am meant to change it! :D

    Nooooo!!! Definitely dont change.

    I took this quiz thingy about a year ago and I got similar scores to yours.

    Don't worry, by "Or am I meant to change it" I meant change the country, not myself or my score! :lol: :P

    Glad I'm not alone in my score though! Ursula on the non-hair thread has a similar score too, so far.

    Hi.

    Although I am very conservative, the compass did not put me as right as I thought it would:

    Your political compass
    Economic Left/Right: -2.13
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.46

    Which i am HONORED to be like. :)

    I love this country.

    Yikes- I thought I was more liberal. Must be my conservative upbringing... :)
  • nomorebeansnomorebeans Registered Users Posts: 1
    I thought I was WAY more liberal than this, too.

    Economic Left/Right: -5.88
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.08

    However, it put me in the same realm as the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela on their chart. That sounds about right. :)

    I'm pretty conservative with Libertarian leanings. I just want a smaller government to leave me alone.

    That was fun - but I don't agree with some of their definitions of political catagories. For example, they say:

    "In our home page we demolished the myth that authoritarianism is necessarily "right wing", with the examples of Robert Mugabe, Pol Pot and Stalin. Similarly Hitler, on an economic scale, was not an extreme right-winger."

    Hitler was never a right-winger at all. The Nazis were the "National SOCIALIST Party". Socialism is just right of communism, but absolutely not on the right. Authoritarianism, actually, is not and never has been a right-wing concept. It is only recently (within the last 20 years) that it has been redefined that way.

    I'm glad to see that they are on their way to demolishing that myth.

    Hitler hated communists. Many were executed outright, or died in concentration camps. The Nazis were not truly socialists at all.

    I know that Hitler hated Communists. But why don't you think he was Socialist?
