    Why is TSR so obsessed with quizzes?

    Anyway, I am near the Scottish Socialist Party - but I'd have expected to be much more authoritarian than that.

    I don't think this quiz is very accurate.

    I've done it many times before, but I'll do it again. Should note that this quiz has stupid questions. Jesus, I bet the vast majority of people in a trans-national corporation, even the CEOs, would answer that globalisation should serve humanity rather than such corporations. Like, how loaded can you get...in addition it does not question much on immigration and does not question enough on authoritarianism (linking it too strongly to being religious).

    I'm slightly drunk and I'm not sure what point you are trying to make..my point is that even though they may well not serve humanity at all, and possibly even work to its collective detriment, many high-flying workers in transnational corporations would still answer in such a way to such a question on principle. I dunno if you are facetiously disagreeing with me or just agreeing. Too drunk lel.

    I'm agreeing with you. Even the most awful people think they are serving humanity. See Hitler.

    Indeed, many people are highly skilled at mental gymnastics. Such behaviour is one of the downfalls of the rather strong raw intellect of humans; the most evil of us will use their intelligence to argue for their absurd, despicable positions.

    Nice one.

    I'm down there with ayn rand - this quiz is very biased to the left though with its moral questions that it expects you to translate into state action, which is quite frankly ridiculous for a political quiz...for example, "the third world is being exploited by multi-national corporations" - yes, I do think that's pretty much the case, but who the hell said I want the national government to stop that?
