@hawkeye10,
I've taken this test before. I'm a strong libertarian on the civil-rights scale, and one little rectangle right of center on the economic scale. Notably, there are no politicians in my quadrant.

I didn't complete the test this time because my true answer to about half the questions would have been "not applicable---the premise of the question is wrong." And that option wasn't available.

@hawkeye10,
I remember the others as not so blatant (in one way or another) - I have to figure out how to find them on search, as they were probably here before the tag system. Craven may have started one and Thomas might have - or I'm misremembering who might have started them.

@ehBeth,
And I thought Craven did first. Glad to be wrong though. I just remember liking the concept.

I agree it was a good idea. From Hingehead's list, I can see that my social libertarianism hasn't changed in the last 10 years, but that my economic libertarianism has eroded from +3.6 or so to +0.5 (I did complete the test now, just to check). This broadly agrees with the changing positions I've defended in A2K's political threads over time. I attribute the change to the experience of actually living under an economically-libertarian system, to the financial crisis of 2008, and to the Great Recession.

I am like Elmer Fudd... I can't see going to work...

A compass is a wrong metaphore... And X Y grid is more appropriate...

@ehBeth,
I guess i am to the left of Ghandi. Does that make me a liberal. I too would have liked a no opinion option and many of the questions were slanted. But interesting.

Somewhat left of Milton Friedman. A fine place to be.

@hawkeye10,
Sorry, Hawk... I don't need a compass to tell me where I stand... To be revolutionary means to be conservative of all lasting values, and to demand the rights even primitives enjoy... It is like saying the Greeks invented Democracy... They invented the word, and the relationship was universal for everyone at some point....

Lower Left with most of us. No wonder I am so disgusted with the current political climate.
