    Little bit less capitalistic. Little bit more libertarian.
    "Son," he said without preamble, "never trust a man who doesn't drink, because he's probably a self-righteous sort, a man who thinks he knows right from wrong all the time. Some of them are good men, but in the name of goodness, they cause most of the suffering in the world. They're the judges, the meddlers. And, son, never trust a man who drinks but refuses to get drunk. They're usually afraid of something deep down inside, either that they're a coward or a fool or mean and violent. You can't trust a man who's afraid of himself. But sometimes, son, you can trust a man who occasionally kneels before a toilet. The chances are that he is learning something about humility and his natural human foolishness, about how to survive himself. It's damned hard for a man to take himself too seriously when he's heaving his guts into a dirty toilet bowl.

    I still maintain this questionnaire is rubbish because it draws a lot of conclusions from very open-ended questions. The twat who programmed it must've assumed a whole lot of my meanings when I chose this and that which may or may not accurately reflect my reasoning behind each choice.

    I think this is the first time I took the test that I made it to the positives in the authoritarian scale, too
    In the future, the Berlin wall will be a mile high, and made of steel. You too will be made to crawl, to lick children's blood from jackboots. There will be no creativity, only productivity. Instead of love there will be fear and distrust, instead of surrender there will be submission. Contact will be replaced with isolation, and joy with shame. Hope will cease to exist as a concept. The Earth will be covered with steel and concrete. There will be an electronic policeman in every head. Your children will be born in chains, live only to serve, and die in anguish and ignorance.
    The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.

    I'm quite fickle, if I had money I'd probably be more conservative.
    Social issues, I'm liberal.

    I'm quite far left/libertarian, same as usual.

    "A significant advantage of a one-party state is that it avoids all the arguments that delay progress in a democratic political system."
    I don't see how anyone that understands politics could disagree with this statement...a little help?

    Economic Left/Right: -3.12
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.28
    More extreme than I remember in the past, but still the same ratio.

    Because the delay of progress can be seen as a good thing (e.g. not rushing through legislation).

    But if progress is really what it means--an improvement--then why delay it? Progress should come swiftly, and heck, if there's no official way to dispute it without getting your head chopped off, there's no need to worry about dissent.

    I think this has to do with what side of the argument you're on, too. An advocate of democracy would make an argument similar to yours because they believe in the principles of the system (ie the people decide through their representation what's best for them), while a Phoxe...erm, fascist would say the trepidation in passing legislature is a sign of weakness, etc.
