My Favourite Links #10

This week’s site is Political Compass. It is an extremely complete test, which helps to you to define your ideology. They place you on a compass depending on the answers you provide. With all the confusion there is about political labels this site is an excellent tool for understanding core concepts.

    The Political Compass is very good. (Out of interest, I seem to stand somewhere between the Dalai Lama and Ghandi, and make of that what you will).

    The scary thing is the graph comparing UK political parties, showing that Nulab is more authoritarian than the Conservatives under Maggie, and nearly as right-wing; and internationally, Gordon Brown is only a tad more “liberal” than Aznar, Sarko and Berlusconi. And in spite of cries from the old guard, Zapatero doesn’t come out as particularly left-wing, either.

    Even allowing for a good pinch of salt, it makes you think…

    As a self-proclaimed Marxist I got the following score:

    Economic Left/Right: -10.00
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.08

    As a libertarian sceptic, what score did you get Martin?
