I discovered another fun application this week called the Political Compass via Divided We Stand United We Fall. The application administers a brief test that asks users a host of political questions. The application then scores their answers and plots these scores on the following grid:
I scored a 3.88 on the economic left/right axis and a 1.23 on the social libertarian/authoritarian axis. In essence, I favor free market economic policies (within reason) and am slightly more conservative when it comes to social policies (again, within reason).
The site also provides a map of where several famous and/or notorious world leaders would place on the grid.
I encourage folks to take this test and post the results on this site.
