The Political Compass

The Political Compass

An alternative approach to the traditional Right vs Left political spectrum.
I agree with their argument that "the old one-dimensional categories of 'right'
and 'left'" is "overly simplistic for today's complex political landscape".
The Political Compass considers two axes: the traditional economic issues on
one axis and social issues on the other.

Take the Test

My political compass ...
 Economic Left/Right: -4.00
 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.59
which apparently puts me in the same (political) ball-park as Nelson Mandela
and Mahatma Gandhi.
