Remember this guys? It's where you take a political test and see where you stand on the political scale. Feel free to post images of your results!
Here are my results:
the test is way too simple to be accurate and the way "libertarian" is represented here isn't really what libertarianism means anymore. libertarianism is the belief that taxes are bad and governments should be really small and little or no regulation from governments is necessary. i strongly disagree with that.
if this thread catches on it'll be hell
Well the y axis is only social issues, so this has you as a social liberal, but also a fiscal liberal. Whereas "Libertarians" seem to mostly identify as socially liberal fiscally conservative.
Yeah, I don't really think I'm much of a Libertarian so I dunno.
Here's mine. I think it's pretty accurate. However, this reflects my own views of an idealized society. If I had society affecting influence in today's world, I think I would be more authoritative.
"People with serious inheritable disabilities should not be allowed to reproduce." I wasn't ready for this question, caught me off guard, would diabetes be considered a serious disease? Thinking about it, I disagree but was cynical that parents would have the foresight to make responsible decisions for their potential children. A lot of those questions where shades of grey. Neat site for sure!
@skytylz: yeah it's pretty weird how it handles the y-axis. pretty sure i'm low because i wasn't like "the police are great" but there isn't enough fidelity in the quiz to determine that I think tax, public funding and big government are good ideas. so the y-axis incorporates social matters too
So according to the website the closest people to my views are Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama. That's good company. Also which Dalai Lama?
They only refer to the current Dalai Lama as The Dalai Lama, I believe. Past Lamas are referred to differently.
