    Political Compass Thread

    Post your test results here.

    Anyway, here are mine:

    Economic Left/Right: -2.25
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.28



    My results a few months ago were around {-4,-4}, so you could say that my views have shifted significantly.

    Re: Political Compass Thread

    I'm not exactly sure what this means, but here's mine:

    Your political compass
    Economic Left/Right: -1.25
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.26

    My Political Lean.jpg

    Maybe someone could explain it to me. Do I have to change my Lean now?

    No. I always thought political compass used ****ty questions.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You don't have to; however, "Conservative Liberal" could also be a good descriptor for your views (judging by the results).

    Also StillBallin, I generally agree that some questions were egregiously stupid and/or framed exclusively within Liberal-Democratic politics. I have experience with the compass though, so I can generally tell what the views of somebody will be according to his/her results.

    For example, I've noticed that European Fascists almost always score around {-2, 5}, whilst the culturally liberal faction of the contemporary fascist movement will get somewhere around {-5, 3}. Modern Liberals tend to score around {-3.1, -5} and Conservative Liberals get scores close to those of MaggieD's results.

    You could also be described as a "Liberal Conservative" in the European sense (i.e, you value economic liberalism and laissez-faire but still have respect for traditional values).

    Re: Political Compass Thread

    I'm generally in the political center, but in the authoritarian right by a couple notches.

    actually i value fiscal conservatism with a light amount of moral conservatism,but maybe thats why it started to lean libertarian vs authoritarian.
