Smack in the middle of the liberal left. How predictable.

Welcome back.

There's something very appealing about a strongman.

Perhaps you can vote for Tony Abbott if he makes a comeback.

Schools should not make classroom attendance compulsory.

They may as well just ask if you are gay or not.

Try as I might I can't get my results to display.

This may be because my personal red dot is located well to the south left of the square, midway between the dickhead and idiot axes.

As a society, you'd presumably like to see yer Barristers favouring libertarian principles.

Well, half of them, anyway. :)

There is an inherent fault in that test - it appears that to be counted as authoritarian you have to believe in at least one of religion, totalitarian state ideology, or global monopoly corporations.

Yup. There were some weird ideas in there. The link between Authoritarianism and religion was strong too. Must have been news to Hitler and Stalin.

As always I fundamentally disagree with some questions not having a equal option. Likewise some of the religious questions there seemed flawed.

Economically I'm drifting to the left I believe.

It's not helped that many of the question are situational. Take this pandemic, many people who are socially liberal and a social libertarian have wanted quite a more authoritative approach from our government. People who believe in more open borders have expressed dismay the government didn't lock down international travel.

I suspect that if I did the test again and answered the exactly opposite that I would land one spot away in the purple quadrant.
I tried but it went all doggo on me.

Previously I've been near the centre of the green square but I seem to be drifting further to the South-West, bang on Caroline Lucas turf, according to the personalised certificate...dunno if either of these images will show...

You're supposed to get more right-wing as you get older.

I'm pretty sure I was far further to the right in my youth.

I've done it a few times, but thought I'd do it again to see if I've drifted.

From memory I was more left and more authoritarian last time.

Although I'm not sure it's very accurate. What has believing is astrology got to do with politics? It's just an indication of being either dumb or ignorant.
