I’ve known of this website for some time now, but have never gotten around to talking around it for various reasons (chief reason being the non-existance of this blog).
It’s called Political Compass, and it’s a different way of finding out where you are on the political spectrum. Instead of simply categorizing you as left or right, it asks you a series of questions and then places you on a graph according to both your social and economic views. The extremes in the graph are Authoritarian (Fascism) and Libertarian (Anarchism) for the social realm, and Communism and Neo-Liberalism for the economic realm. I don’t know if it’s the most scientifically conducted way of finding out your poitical views, but it does explain some things. Or at least, according to the examples on the site’s analysis page, it would do only to confirm my Former Soviet Union course’s professor that the President is an authoritarian, heh.
Read on to see my own graph, and, if you wish, post you own here.
The analysis page includes some examples of well known public figures, and where they fall on this scale.
