Most political compass quizzes test only two aspects and tend to throw me somewhere at random from liberal democrat to libertarian.

This quiz tests in three dimensions: cultural, fiscal, and your view on corporations and seem to give better results at least for me.

Now all we need to do is to convince OSC to take it. [Smile]

Pretty stupid "quiz":

Should the government provide funding for art that deals with the erotic and scatological and would likely be considered pornographic?

If the U.S. cut its budget on defense this year, I don’t even want to think about what could happen.

Kind of interesting, ATW (despite Zyne being a party pooper [Razz] ). Although I will admit that the phrasing of some of the questions is...well... overblown? Anyway, to confirms the worst of Zyne's suspicions [Big Grin] , here are my results:

1: Traditional Societies (100%)
2: Anarcho-syndicalist (95%)
3: Conservative (87%)
4: Libertarian (85%)
5: Totalitarian (49%)
6: Liberal (46%)
7: Authoritarian (38%)
8: New Labour (35%)

Up with scatological drawings. Pen and ink, and ink, and ink.

I'm funny that way. Kinda like yer goats? Or... I [ed:kidzmom is speaking here, just ask her] live kind of "near" this place which is "by" a "highway." The highway you reach 14 miles after you leave the dirt "road"... which is a few miles away from the place with the graded byway and rocks you drive on ("fancy road"), you know, that spurious corner about a dozen miles from the LAST GAS FOREVER sign.

Totalitarian liberal authoritarian: You WILL do it my way [ed: said potemkyn]. Or you will form a focus group, a support group and a meditation group, and reach consensus to the way of the path. Or else.

I've just figured out I'm the "constitutional peasant" from Holy Grail.

"Supreme executive power is derived from a mandate from the masses, not some farcical aquatic ceremony."

"Come and see the violence inherent in the system. Help! Help! I'm being repressed!"

An explanation of the results for those who don't want to wade through the entire site.

The test places you based on three factors


A) Cultural:


Some Characteristic catchwords used by one side: government out of our bedrooms, tolerance, intolerance, consensual, victimless crime, do your own thing, born free, chains of society, fascist police state, gestapo.

Some Characteristic catchwords used by the other side: tradition, law and order, chaos, protect people from their own stupidity, people who know better, honor and duty, these laws exist for a reason, God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.


B) Fiscal (money matters)


Characteristic catchwords used by one side: compassionate, free and universal, support, invest in our country's future, cold-hearted, stingy, wants to rob our children.

Characteristic catchwords used by the other side: personal responsibility, big government, tax-and-spend, welfare state, privatization, welfare cheats, rugged individualism, hard-working Americans, save you millions of dollars.


C) Your view on the role of corporations


One side: corporations should be treated and protected with the same rights as individuals. Characteristic catchwords: it's their business, free enterprise, the magic of the market, property rights, intellectual property violator.

Other side: believe that a corporation is not a person and cannot be a person, and therefore does not deserve the same rights as a person. Businesses are viewed as a form of authority, akin to government authority, that can be oppressive.

Characteristic catchwords: corporate greed, people before profits, Naderism, sell-out, monolithic corporate culture, pigs, Micro$oft.


==

Imagine a box containing eight squares that completely fill it.


The top layer of four squares are arranged like this:


1) Liberal 2) Totalitarian

3) Anarcho-syndicalist 4) Traditional Societies (aka Paleo-conservative)


The bottom layer of four squares are arranged like this directly under the top layer:


1) New Labour 2) Authoritarian

3) Libertarian 4) Conservative
==

LIBERAL: (box 1 level 1) Cultural freedom, a government that provides plenty of social services, and brakes on the power of business. This is your prototypical, all-around liberalism, including socialism or true communism.


NEW LABOR: (box 1 level 2) Cultural freedom, fiscally active government, and pro-big business. This is similar to the ideology, in a nutshell, of the British New Labour Party. People of this group have a positive, upbeat view towards the value of work and the power of corporations to do benevolent and fulfilling things. They believe that with just the right corporate leadership, the working man or woman can produce and be paid for commodities that can be enjoyed by all. Unlike totalitarians, those in the New Labour camp believe in the freedom of businesses to innovate and choose what to produce.


TOTALITARIAN: (box 2 level 1) Government intervention in cultural life, a strong activist central government, and brakes on the power of business. The opposite of libertarianism, this is the category of strongest power of government. Government conforming to this ideology will regulate all spheres of your life, including serving as the power to keep business under check. Businesses will be controlled under this system by being told by the government what to produce and sell, how much, and how to sell it. Similar to communism, except without the social freedom important to communist and socialist ideology.


AUTHORITARIAN: (box 2 level 2) Social restrictions, lots of government involvement in fiscal services, and focus on the rights of businesses. The true authoritarians, emphasizing the upholding of authority, be it of government or of business. Being a member of society and abiding by its rules is very important to them, and they hold the views they do on fiscal issues because they consider government an important central guiding force in society. You abide by your society's restrictions and contribute to your society, you get government entitlements in exchange for your sacrifices. Neocons, who, although far to the right, do not oppose "big government" in the typical conservative way and have unseverable ties to big business and faith in the power of the military, belong to this group.


ANARCHO-SYNDICALIST: (box 3 level 1) Personal freedom, elimination of services such as welfare, social security and student money from the government, and anti-corporate ideology. It's what many people call the "left-libertarians". More liberal than the libertarians, anarcho-syndialists are anti-government, but they find business to be behaving in too oppressive and authoritarian a manner. Your stereotypical anti-corporate, anti-WTO, anti-anything protestors.


LIBERTARIAN: (box 3 level 2) Personal freedom, opposition to government spending, and free enterprise. Libertarianism, just as David Nolan, Harry Browne, and their co-partisans know it, fit here. When libertarians describe themselves as being "economically conservative", they mean they fit in the conservative group in both fiscal and corporate issues. Libertarians believe in the primacy of the individual, and hold the fiscal political views they do because of their belief in responsibility and independence from government. What goes on in someone's bedroom is nobody's business.


TRADITIONAL SOCIETIES (aka Paleo-conservative): (box 4 level 1)
Low freedom in moral issues (social tradition), no services or entitlements from the government or taxes paid to the government, corporations not endorsed as having human rights. Sex roles and the rituals of birth, dating, marriage and procreation were heavily ritualized and preserved from generation to generation. Government had not expanded to include services like welfare to people, and big business had not been created yet. Unlimited authority to business owners was not recognized by whatever governments existed, and the social contract prevented it. Typically rural and living in traditional communities, often Old World European in character. (Think of any 1950's america movie about life in a small town)


CONSERVATIVE: (box 4 level 2) Low social freedom, small government in fiscal spheres, and big business. This is the party-line combination for such parties considered to be "conservative" as Conservative, Republican and Tory.


==

Looking at that chart, you can find the opposite of any of the eight ideologies by locating the box across from it on all three axes. The opposite of libertarian (left, lower, posterior), the most anti-government of the eight, for instance, is totalitarian (right, upper, anterior) -- total government. Likewise, the opposite of anarcho-syndicalist is authoritarian, the opposite of New Labour is paleo-conservative, and, of course, the opposite of conservative is liberal.


You can find out how close people of other ideologies are to oneself by counting the number of axes that are different and the same. For example, suppose you are an anarcho-syndicalist. You obviously have a lot in common with other individuals in your own category, lower left, at the front of the chart. Your closest allies from other political groups (differing in only one sector each), would be paleo-conservative (cultural), liberal (fiscal) and libertarian (corporate). You would feel more distant from those who differ from you on two out of three axes (having only one sector in common): New Labour (cultural), conservative (fiscal) and totalitarian (corporate). You would be the most unlike of all your antithesis, authoritarian, unlike you in any way.

Probably shows the inaccuracies of the test [Smile] as I wouldn't describe myself as liberal at all and intend to vote for New Labour in next year's general election.

Jasonr, me too. I guess "not sure" is the "liberal" answer, but I din't agree with any of the choices on most of the questions.

I took this test back sometime. It's so moronic - on the Marijuana question they have SEVEN different options, and none of them are the option I and most drug reform activists I know support.

Should marijuana be legalized?
* No
* It should be legal to possess it only, not to sell it.
* Yes, and the government should assume a socialist ownership of the establishments that sell it.
* It should be saleable, and the government should help protect the interests of the existing marijuana-selling businesses so they can flourish and grow.
* Businesses and individuals should sell it without any regulation, inspection, liability, or accountability for product marketing and representation.
* It should be sold freely, but marijuana entrepreneurs shouldn’t be allowed to lie about their products and hurt people by selling them fake weed or not telling them that their weed is laced with a different product.
* This is completely a States’ Rights issue.
* Not sure

Let's see, boys and girls, if we can find the MISSING option...

RickyB is right about that question. How about:

It should be legal to own MJ. It should be legal to sell MJ, with proper licensing, taxation and regulation same as for alcohol or tobacco.

Legal to own but not sell is how you get large organized crime. Only the gov't can sell? I don't think I want the gov't in that biz, nor in the business of promoting MJ sales. Obviously it should be regulated, inspected, etc.

As for it being a states' rights issue, it can't be states' rights so long as it remains a federal crime.

Anarcho syndicalist? I always think of the line that precedes that whole bit

"some lovely filth over here Eric"

4: Anarcho-syndicalist (65%)
5: Authoritarian (57%)

I'm not very happy about authoritarian being over 50% - Oh well - just go with it.

It's o.k., m.e.--imagine my surprise when, as a mother of 6, I ranked UNDER 50% for authoritarian! Especially considering the number of times I've silenced ongoing arguments with the statement, "Our country may be a democracy, but this household isn't!" [Big Grin]

BTW--yeah, yeah, I know we're not a TRUE democracy, but why muddle a perfectly good "mom" line! [Wink]
And yes--I've also (rarely) resorted to the time-honored "because I said so!!"
