There’s a ”political compass” survey making the rounds of the blogosphere. It attempts to measure your political leanings on both left-right and libertarian-authoritarian scales.
Turns out I’m a libertarian pinko, like Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama. One can have worse company.
The one thing I didn’t like about the survey is that it forces you to take a position on every question. It would have been nice to have a “Don’t care/No opinion” option so that things you really don’t care that much about anyway doesn’t skew the results. But what the heck, it’s fun anyway.
