Where are you on this political/social map?

If you take this test, you’ll see about where you are in terms of left wing or right wing, and authoritarian or anti-authoritarian.

You are a right social libertarian.
Right: 5.92, Libertarian: 8.55

Foreign Policy:

On the left side are pacifists and anti-war activists. On the right side are those who want a strong military that intervenes around the world. You scored: 0.51

Culture:

Where are you in the culture war? On the liberal side, or the conservative side? This scale may apply more to the US than other countries. You scored: -6.16

Just as I suspected. I don’t give a fuck what you do in the privacy of your own home, and I only slightly give a fuck what dictators and shit do overseas.

Oh and by the way, here is the original one: http://www.politicalcompass.org/

And some things of interest to Americans:

And British:

And now see why the masses have lost faith in democracy, the Left is dead.

Plot of EU governments

Note how no major governments, parties or even candidates (across the western world) really line up with the position of most people…

Exactly what I thought I would get. Really spot on, and it hasn’t changed all that much from the last time I took this test, which must have been several years ago.

Left 2.81, Libertarian 0.7

Here’s the Canadian equivalent which tells you what party you identify with. According to that, I should vote Green.

(As an aside… My dad is a strongly conservative republican. The day I turned 18, I registered as a democrat. I don’t think either party has it altogether correct.)

Quiz from the OP:

You are a left social libertarian.
Left: 5.47, Libertarian: 4.57

Political Compass:

Economic Left/Right: -7.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.82

Always a left libertarian in a country where people think you can’t be both left and libertarian. In the US, at least, it seems the Libertarian party is just where Republicans go when they decide they want to smoke pot or can’t take the heat of admitting they’re Republicans.

(P.S.: This FAQ is brilliant.)

amusing group profile, eh?

tranquilsea's avatar

@Seelix Interesting survey. They pegged me at the Green Party too, although I’ll probably vote Liberal for the first time in 10 years.

Seelix's avatar

@tranquilsea – I will also. At this point, for me, it’s all about getting Harper out, and though I’d be more inclined personally to go with NDP, I’ll vote Liberal just so as not to “waste” my vote.

tranquilsea's avatar

@Seelix “I’ll vote Liberal just so as not to “waste” my vote.” Isn’t that the sad truth? I’ve voted in the past knowing I was putting some cash in various parties’ pockets at least but I’ve had enough of Harper too. Although in my riding (in very, very blue Alberta) a Liberal vote is meaningless.

Seelix's avatar

@tranquilsea – I’ve voted some throwaways, too, when I felt it didn’t really matter, just to pad the pockets of those who need it. My riding (Toronto Centre) is actually one of the most guaranteed Liberal ridings in Canada – and my MP is Bob Rae (he used to be the Conservative premier of Ontario). So I know he’ll win the seat anyway, even if I were to vote another way, but I just want Harper out so badly that I’ll add my vote to the Liberal pile just for the sake of it.
