    I ballsed one question up and put strongly agree instead of strongly disagree - I've done it before and been just above the anarchism line.

    Can't be arsed to redo it though as there's too many questions!

    It's a dynamic link, so won't display on MT.  You'll need to 'save as' and host it somewhere - mail me it and I'll stick it up on my server if you want.

    Not sure what that says - somewhere between Ghandi and Stalin.
    Some of the questions I felt my answer wasn't there.

    I'm in the middle of the test, but this test is getting on my tits. For example, "Those with the ability to pay should have the right to higher standards of medical care."

    If that question isn't to be prefaced with 'in an ideal world', then the answer has to be no. If I thought otherwise, I would already be donating half my income to third world charities.

    "Abstract art that doesn't represent anything shouldn't be considered art at all." There needs to be a tick box for f off.

    Here's an interesting question:
    "In criminal justice, punishment should be more important than rehabilitation". Taken to its logical conclusion, if someone who moments ago killed someone you loved, and you were given the magic wand option of instant rehabilitation or everlasting punishment, which would you choose? Rehabilition I suppose; but on the other hand, faced with a system of instand rehabilition or everlasting punishment, doesn't such a system make it more likely that the loved one is murdered? Which system is better, surely the one with fewer murders.  Am I therefore associating myself with people who malign art, which is presumably a euphemism for gun loving prison guard?

    "Making peace with the establishment is an important aspect of maturity." Where's the I'm not Gerry Adams check box?

    And the Dali Lama, he's got a kindly face so he's a libertarian? Isn't he from a culture of high priests where he is god's chosen one, the special one? Libertarian?

    Anyway, apparently I'm a lefty, but not a labour lefty, a lib dem lefty. http://www.politicalcom...p?ec=-3.62&soc=-3.49

    That's me. Slightly left and slightly libertarian. That's about right

    I thought the questions on sex and religion were a bit weird. They were basically asking whether you were religious and whether you were a homophobe, neither of which I consider to be hugely involved in mainstream politics? But whatever, it got me about right overall

    Actually I take that back. I should have said in mainstream UK politics (and only the mainland there)

    Although title the 'Political Compass' it does say that it's only testing your economic views (to get the left wing / right wing component) and your social views to get the authoritarian / libertarian value - hence the religious / sexuality questions.  Bit of a large extrapolation really, but I guess that's better than a massive questionnaire (I nearly got bored with 6 pages!)

    There's a pretty reliable correspondence between those types of views and political stance.
