Your Political Compass
Linked by the headline above is a website survey that shows where you fall on the spectrum of political opinions. These things can never be totally accurate because of the limitations of language. But the do give you a ballpark estimation of where you stand. I answered questions and got the following answers:
Economic Left/Right: -4.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.31
This means on matters of economics, I tend not to favor pure free market capitalism. On social issues, I tend to be slightly more authoritarian than libertarian. Their so-called experts put Pope Benedict in the same quadrant as me, but not quite as close as I would expect. I think they are probably not Catholic and don't study Benedict as closely as I do. Or perhaps there are questions I interpreted in a different way than they did. My guess is that he would be closer to my position than they put him. Take the test and post your score in the comment box. Then we can insult and make fun of each other.
