    Aww, look at the cute little stereotypical rightie. Do you have a pull-string on your back that makes you say more clichés?

    Can someone explain this question for me, please.
    2. Unions were indispensible in establishing the middle class.
    How are the unions and the middle classes connected?

    Edit - This is an American quiz and (I think) the American definition of middle class is different to the British one.

    You are a left social libertarian.
    Left: 7.43, Libertarian: 3.99

    Although the fact I come out as a positive "libetarian" is odd, because I've always taken this word to generally mean someone who is economically very liberal. Also I found the question about morality being between a man and his God, not the state very odd - as an atheist, what box am I supposed to tick?

    I'm apparently a 'center-left social authoritarian.' Left: 1.25 Authoritarian: 5.84. I'd expect to be a smidgen more on the right.

    Right: 3.67, Libertarian: 2.92



    Which actually seems remarkably accurate, all things considered. Though there were a few questions which I thought a little daft, such as "A person's morality is between that person and God only. Government should not get involved." which seemed to assume a religious belief and "International trade agreements should require environmental protections and workers' rights." which assume you put workers' rights and the environment on the same level of importance. But, all in all, pretty well thought out quiz.

    Any economic views of mine are very liable to change though, seeing as I'm really not as informed as I need to be to make a sensible judgement.

    -4.55 and -5.99 on foreign policy and culture, respectively. Again, liable to change, I imagine.

    As a Muslim?

    You should reconsider your beliefs!

    Proud of you bro :yep:
    Who says I haven't reconsidered my beliefs? :ninja:

    Besides, I don't think Islam fits neatly into any political ideology.

    WOOOW:

    "50. A person's morality is between that person and God only. Government should not get involved."

    How do you answer that?

    The other quiz is better; this one is tailored to Americans and makes flawed assumptions. I have to pretend i'm a theist to normally answer that question, for example!
    I wouldn't say this alone makes the other quiz better - I'm an atheist too but I just said the government shouldn't be involved in morality, agree strongly, high importance. I just ignored the God part.

    I find the questions less slanted than the political compass test, and a lot of people are saying it makes them come out less left-wing, and I've always said the political compass is designed to make everyone seem ridicilously leftie - this test is more objective, even if that one question has a minor flaw to it.

    was practically identical to Gandhi on the political compass.

    on this one i got:
    You are a left moderate social libertarian.
    Left: 4.93, Libertarian: 1.23

    though tbh on the politcal compass most people came out more left then they actually are just because of how the questions were worded. think this quid was a bit better but alot of it was "it depends" and the religious one was abit strange to answer

    The political compass makes me seem like much more of a tree-hugging hippy!
