I feel like, if we've ever done it before, we haven't done it in a while! Let's judge one another based on where a test tells us we fall!

Here's my result. As expected, I'm fairly moderate, with some leanings towards economic and personal freedom.

Oh, and if any of you find a better test, share it and we can judge one another based on that as well!

This is about where I was when I last took a test on this axis (senior year of high school).

I appear to be distinctly unpronounced. I would have guessed my views on economics would put me further to the right, but I'm fairly satisfies with this position.

According to the chart, I'm practically Gandhi.

Now that I think about it, how exactly does being both Left and Libertarian work on this scale? A government whose only responsibility is regulating corporations?

I dunno. I guess I would prefer a system where redistribution isn't necessary but that somehow isn't socialism?

Even at the best of times I think my political thoughts are kind of half-formed. Also I guess I kind of think that any positive change will only happen at the expense of other worse things happening, and that all civilizations are headed into unavoidable decline and that all we can really do is try to slow it down or adapt to it. So mostly this is an intellectual exercise that I don't have any real stake in. :kcg:

I ended up 1 square north of flak. Must have been my rigidly authoritarian opinion on astrology!

I have a Leo t-shirt.

It's actually a Homestuck t-shirt.
