The Political Compass

Recommended Posts

I'm not one for labels, nor groupthink. However various labels like "Nazi" and "far-right" are bandied about far too liberally (see what I did there) these days.

While the archetypical struggles of decades-gone-by which made it very easy to separate "left" from "right" have, IMO, passed now, there remains a "classic" definition of left vs right and also, and  importantly, "authoritarian" vs "libertarian".

See where you stand here.

https://www.politicalcompass.org/test

FWIW, my result:

My result: right - libertarian

Economic Left/Right: 2.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.72

(positive - more toward the latter and negative, in the direction of the former caption)

Tests I did years ago showed me to be exactly centrist. Now it's more toward right wing. I can't say for sure but I suspect I do indeed identify as more right than left, in the classic sense. And very highly libertarian.

Thought it might be interesting to see where we all stand.

Economic Left/Right: 0.5
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.54

Seems I've crept up a little towards the dark side since I last tried it.

Always surprises me how left leaning and libertarian I am.

Although seemingly left leaning, I'd rather vote far right than adopt the far left.

chart.png.bcabdd90847785dcd442ab6179ba5290.pngI don't think this test is a very accurate measure because there are a fair number of reasonably involved questions and the more tribal will just concur with their own political feelz instead of thinking out the question.

I started doing the questions.

Then it timed out.

Weird mix of european and american left issues.

 

Im suspicious of questionaires that dont offer - Dont care/give a fuck option.

I’m not a fan of questionnaires, they tell you more about the person who designed it than the person answering it.

Pits a bit of fun though and interestingly, I’m left libertarian. Who knew. xD

Indeed. I think most people I know would take one look on here and regard us as far right nutjobs

which just goes to show what a strange place the current Uk political debate has moved to.

me left right -3.75

Libertarian authoritarian -0.62

about what I expected and what I've seen previous times I've done such things and where I would have placed myself had anyone asked.

Not as left as me. xD

agree with @Melchett above, strange times we live in. Left and right no longer make sense. Both parties are out to destroy ordinary working people.

But apparently I'm really a Nazi for being white and voting to leave the EU O.o

I’m not sure. I think it puts you to the left of Steptoe. Whatever he is and stands for, it isn’t the traditional left.

I did this a couple of years ago and was placed somewhat near Gandhi. 

On repeating, I got this, ever so slightly right of centre and somewhat liberal. Unusual, because I thought I was Literally Hitler.
