Re: Your Political Compass Test (3Min.)

To get a better real world picture I think everyone's score needs to be moved two squares to the right. In your case you will end up falling off the graph paper, better keep you climbing rope handy

Makes me out to be an anarcho-capitalist. Eat the poor! I actually think I'm a bit more centrist than that in reality.

People get into arguments on this forum about getting mislabelled. Let your inner Pol Pot/Hitler/Gandhi/etc out and let us know where you truly stand!
Thank you for that. Really interesting. Not too surprised about my score, am in the same green field as most others.

I knew that this wasn't a new test, has been around for years, and remembered that I would have posted results the last time someone mentioned it in a discussion forum. Interesting to see if I've changed since 2008. Not much, apparently:

TonyClifton is also in that square just (which is where Ive found myself when Ive done the test in the past - I really cant be arsed doing it again).

Id expect Phil to be there too.

What I like about Switzerland is there is a political party, the FDP, which broadly supports my/our views, whereas in the UK there are none and in the US both parties score highly on the batshit mental scale.

He and Clifton will be firmly in the blue if they answer the same way as they post on here.

But I agree with others, this is US-skewed. The centre point appears to be somewhere around Mitch McConnell

Wow - I'm more liberal than even I thought, maybe grumpy, ennui and I need to get in touch since we might be involved in the same revolution...

Re: Your Political Compass Test (3Min.)

The US Democratic Party, although called socialist by their adversaries, is quite right of centre (They would say center) on a European scale.

Thank goodness I dont live in the excited states.

I consider them pretty much the same as the Swiss socialist party, who are definite lefties.

AOC and Bernie are in the green ... and well, they have given us the green new deal too, wouldn't say they are unelectable except for POTUS.

Re: Your Political Compass Test (3Min.)

I did this a while back and if I remember correctly I'm around the same as TTYL, so left and a bit centrist. It is the same as any discussion on US politics, I'm center right here, but in the US that puts me firmly in the left territory as their center has shifted so far.

There's the Swiss party picker thing here somewhere that puts me as CVP.

LOL, certainly so far- no surprises re EF members and their results. The test is in the every day pudding- no test required

Sorry but it is bit confusing now. You merged it with a 5 year old thread

People were political virgins back then, the landscape has changed a lot post Trump.

Anyway no big deal
