Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: -4.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.49

I fit in right next to Ghandi. More left than I think I probably am.

 

Edit 30/5:
A Morality-Based Political Test

Your scored -4 on the Moral Order axis and -0.5 on the Moral Rules axis.

The following items best match your score:

1. System: Liberalism
2. Variation: Moderate Liberalism, Moral Liberalism
3. Ideologies: Capital Democratism
4. US Parties: Democratic Party
5. Presidents: Jimmy Carter (97.79%)
6. 2004 Election Candidates: John Kerry (92.03%), Ralph Nader (88.95%), George W. Bush (55.53%)

 

Reading the explanations I definitely fall into the category they call ‘NonConformance’, but not entirely (for example I do not believe that all lifestyles are acceptable — I have a very low opinion of people who choose to sponge benefits off the state rather than work, or whose anti-social behaviour has a negative impact on others etc).

“NonConformance is the notion of a flat moral order. People who like NonConformance may believe that:

1. All ethnies [?] are equal
2. Men equal women
3. All cultures are equally valuable
4. All countries are equally important
5. All religions are equivalent
6. All lifestyles are acceptable…

A flat moral order fosters diversity of thought and behavior across society. It also encourages each individual to accomplish their personal desires by not conforming to any pre-defined standard.”

Riboflavin has some interesting comments about this test on his page. I prefered the questions on this test to those on Political Compass – but on reflection I don’t really know enough political jargon to even make out if both tests say the same about me, lol. In the recent UK election I did vote for the party which according to this site apparently shares my moral politics (although at the time I just went for the best of a bad bunch).

I’m currently a sucker for online ‘tests’ 🙂
