Political Compass

Since no one is commenting on the poor wording of the questions, I will. For instance:

The prime function of schooling is to equip the future generation to find jobs.

Now, with only the choices of Strongly Agree, Agree, Disagree, and Strongly Disagree, it is hard to tell what someone meant by their answer. I wanted to say that I agree, because that is how it IS RIGHT NOW, not perhaps HOW I THINK IT SHOULD BE. Flawed.

The death penalty should be an option for the most serious crimes.

If you think the death penalty is wrong in all situations, you would say "Strongly Disagree"... but if you think that the death penalty should be used for crimes that are NOT serious, you might also answer "Strongly Disagree"... see what I mean?

more ramblings and my compass under the cut

in addition, the question about legalizing MJ caught my eye as well.... normally being for the legalization of currently illegal substances is considered a leftist type of thing... but not if you want to legalize it so that the people stupid enough to do drugs are killed off by ODing thus lowering in the population and increasing the overall smart-ness-level of the world. *shrug* There were a few questions like that that bothered me, but I answered them in the way that I knew they were being graded... so this turned out rather accurate anyway. I'm not as close to the upper right as I used to be, must be softening up.

Your political compass

Economic Left/Right: 3.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 3.59
