Political Test


Ray over at Tortured Artist took this political test and turns out he’s a leftist pig so I’m not going to be able to associate with him anymore. :>

As with many tests I don’t like the questions. It isn’t as leading as the Libertarian test, but I still find the questions weird. Like “Our race has many superior qualities, compared to other races.” When I read this I thought they meant the HUMAN race. I guess they mean my country? Or do they mean white people of European decent?

What the heck is the FTSE index? “Now, the economy. We’re talking attitudes here, not the FTSE index.”

“The most important thing for children to learn is to accept discipline.” I had to disagree because it is not the MOST important thing. But it is very important. I had a marriage and family teacher in college that said “All discipline is teaching self-discipline.”

“Abstract art that doesn’t represent anything shouldn’t be considered art at all.” I disagreed. I just think Abstract art doesn’t mean anything. But an artistic juxtaposition of colors and shape can be pleasant to look at and take skill to produce. So it can be good or bad art.

“Multinational companies are unethically exploiting the plant genetic resources of developing countries.” I wonder how many people even understood this? And I wonder if they mean the concept of patenting genes discovered or the use of formerly unknown and rare plants in pharmaceuticals.

“Making peace with the establishment is an important aspect of maturity.” I hadn’t thought about this but I think it is true. You can still work to change the establishment, but you have to get over being freaked out about it.

Ultimately I’m a little authoritarian and fairly far to the right. Economic Left/Right: 5.62, Libertarian/Authoritarian: 2.31

    I’m betting that my newfound leftist slant would change depending on the mood I was in that day. Still, I understand if you can no longer associate with me. =-)
