Political Spectrum Quiz

I’m a little surprised at the strong libertarian side of things, as I consider myself a socialist. Some of the questions were… tricky in that I could have answered them in a certain way depending on the next statement. For example, “Do you support the death penalty if the crime is heinous enough” – I have to answer yes, but that is only under the assumption the legal system can be considered infallible. I have to answer the question as it’s stated, so had to say “Yes, I agree, strongly.”

  1. The original political quiz of this sort was explicitly designed to “show” more people that they are Libertarians, and in my experience, most every follow-on quiz/test using similar axes has had a similar built-in bias.

  2. They have only two options above or below the axis: “authoritarian” or “libertarian”. My guess is you’d rather be the latter 🙂

  3. The problems I had with the questions were the subjective options. We could discuss for hours what would be considered ” heinous enough”. I don’t trust the government’s judgement on the seriousness of a given crime. Still, I came out pretty much where I expected.
