pretty much this because I got a different result in the economics but I'm not going to pretend I understand any of that shit enough to have even a semblance of an opinion

I strongly disagreed with everything and this is what I got.

Given how much further left the test says I am than I consider myself, I imagine it weighs criminal justice reform and sex-related questions much more heavily on the left-right scale than it does economics.

Am I the only one who felt like these were far too simplified questions? There's a lot of nuance that I would've liked to have with something like this that gets lost on a 62-question test that uses five-point scales.

I love how they set the questions up in these kinds of test as if they're trick questions. You gotta read some of them three times.
how many movements do you have going on, psychotic ?

This poll is such a piece of shit, especially when they throw down garbage like this:

"from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" is a fundamentally good idea.

Yes, I agree. But no, you should not place me on the left side of the spectrum just because I agreed.

Or shit like this:

"What's good for the most successful corporations is always, ultimately, good for all of us. "

I would agree that most of the time what is good for successful corporations is good for us. I should not be placed on the left side of the spectrum for stating "disagree". I disagree because obviously corporations like Nike and Nestle are filled with scumbaggery and nobody can argue that slavery is good for us (where "us" presumably refers to "civilization", fitting the forced civilization vs. corporation narrative).

"A significant advantage of a one-party state is that it avoids all the arguments that delay progress in a democratic political system. "

No fucking shit. Of course that is an advantage for a one-party state. That's why we don't fucking want it in democracies.

"The businessperson and the manufacturer are more important than the writer and the artist. "

What is the context? I'm pretty sure all four roles are necessary in order to produce a best seller. That is why we have all four roles. Because some people are not good at things that other people are good at. Stupid question. I'm not sure how it pertains to left vs. right, anyway. I mean, I know exactly what they're getting at, and it's completely flawed.

"Multinational companies are unethically exploiting the plant genetic resources of developing countries. "

What the fuck does this even mean? How the fuck am I supposed to know? How is this a left vs. right or freedom vs. government decision?

"Astrology accurately explains many things. "

How is this relevant to my political compass?

"You cannot be moral without being religious. "

How is this relevant to my political compass?

"Some people are naturally unlucky. "

How is this relevant to my political compass?

"It is important that my child's school instills religious values. "

How is this relevant to my political compass?

"Sex outside marriage is usually immoral. "

How is this relevant to my political compass?

Anyway:

Which is odd, because if you removed all the American bullshit from the compass, I would be unquestionably centre-right. At least they were correct about my Libertarian leanings, I guess.

tl;dr: This test is full of idiotic stereotypes/loaded questions and confuses American political issues as being issues that separate the left from the right, and the authoritarians from the libertarians, when really they are just issues that divide a person into Republican or Democrat, with no bearing on any political compass.

You're the closest to me atm, but I don't like your risque-ness.


Considering most of the sex-related questions are about whether or not you're okay with gay people, I'm not sure I'd call it risque

This quiz is a load of shit that simplifies complex issues and makes a lot of biased assumptions about compassion and the like. To get anything really authoritarian on that you have to be really trying at it. It fails to distinguish between ideology and practicality.

anyway
Economically, I'm far closer to the centre than that, and more libertarian to boot. I'm closer to syndicalists than I am Marxists nowadays, but when you've got no centre ground or conditional answer it's difficult to illustrate.
