World's Smallest Political Quiz

World's Smallest Political Quiz.

It's surprisingly good, despite being very concise. I got confirmed I'm libertarian at heart. (Though I simplified my standpoints a little.)

Update:

People whose writings I like consistently turn out to be libertarians.
I'm against making people responsible for their own pension, privatizing welfare or blindly reducing taxes without first specifying which expenses you're going to sacrify.
Maybe the test is a bit too simple or too American?
The (longer) test at http://politicalcompass.org/test puts me in the exact center of Libertarianism. :-)

I'm on the line between liberal (left) and centrist.

Actually I remember we had a discussion about the word "liberal", that means the opposite in the USA and France, but I don't really remember.

Liberal!

What I really want is for all our politicians to just shut up.

But I had the same result as Anna.

I have the theory that politics and the government in any country is a smaller mirror of the collective mind in that country. Scary.

Jan, yes, I had approximately the same issues as you did, I over-simplified my standpoints a bit.

@ Eolake -

"I have the theory that politics and the government in any country is a smaller mirror of the collective mind in that country. Scary."

Don't forget that not everyone votes or actively participates, except to maybe throw mung at those who do - so your theory may be based on an inadequate sampling of the general population.

As old George Burns once said, "It's too bad that the only people who know how to run the country are busy driving cabs and cutting hair."

A lot of us, myself included, don't get actively involved with a political party, because we can't trust the two-faced lyin' bastards behind the whole thing. Or, as old Nikita Khrushchev once said, "Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build bridges even where there are no rivers."
