I sense a growing need for this test. I do not vouch for its accuracy, but I thought it was fun at least and somewhat informative.

Am I an anomaly? I seem to be the only economic right aside from Ne Oublie, yet I also tend to be social Libertarian.

Right, so I decided to re-take the test, and found myself moving even farther right! As well as somewhat more authoritarian - although that has more to do with the way some of the questions were phrased, I answered according to my own views, but that is a long shot from thinking government should be imposing views, whether mine or others'.

Economic Left/Right: 7.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.23

I'm the only one in this quadrant so far!(reply to this comment

Regi, I just had a look at your profile, and you look really familiar...

Did you go by Lorraine for a while, and is your sis Christy in Africa? I think I met you in Poland in '94...

"The liberal left makes sense, the right was formed to counter the left and fantazise about a wonderful past when everyone that mattered was a heterosexual, white christian and no one questioned big brother. The right really doesn't have a valid arguement, unless you consider paranoia and ignorance a valid arguement. Fascism's biggest problem was defining itself as a school of thought, their only sure points were patriotism and a hate of the left, kind of like the Anglican church when they first broke from the Catholic church."

As for the economic left/right:

"the current right would love a no holds barred market free to trash our home planet and use employees like disposable napkins, the left is too busy helping nature's damned and malformed to actually give a damn about the working, healthy average middle class, and does not realize that death is as important as life for a healthy balance on this planet."

discuss these blanket statements.

Ne Oublie, you might find this interesting since you live in the UK. I just copied and pasted it from the political compass site:
A Few Words about "The Extreme Right"
Once you accept that left and right are merely measures of economic position, the "extreme right" refers to extremely liberal economics that may be practised by social authoritarians or social libertarians.
Similarly, the "extreme left" identifies a strong degree of state economic control, which may also be accompanied by liberal or authoritarian social policies.
It's muddled thinking to simply describe the likes of the British National Party as "extreme right". The truth is that on issues like health, transport, housing, protectionism and globalisation, their economics are left of Labour , let alone the Conservatives. It's in areas like police power, military power, school discipline, law and order, race and nationalism that the BNP's real extremism - as authoritarians - is clear.
This mirrors France's National Front. In running some local governments, they reinstated certain welfare measures which their Socialist predecessors had abandoned. Like similar authoritarian parties that have sprung up around Europe, they have come to be seen in some quarters as champions of the underdog, as long as the underdog isn't Black, Arab, gay or Jewish ! With mainstream Social Democratic parties adopting - reluctantly or enthusiastically - the new economic libertarian orthodoxy (neo-liberalism), much of their old economic baggage has been pinched by National Socialism. It's becoming the only sort of socialism on offer. Election debates between mainstream parties are increasingly about managerial competence rather than any clash of vision and economic direction.
In the United States, the voices of dissent over unfettered market forces (ie extreme right economics) are heard from social authoritarians like Pat Buchanan as well as social liberals like Ralph Nader.
As an example, take a look at the ground that the main English parties in the UK's 2003 local elections (May 1) occupied in reality. The difference between the BNP and the Greens in economics isn't great, but there's a huge gap on the social scale. Neither scale, however, reveals enormous distances between the Conservatives and New Labour.(reply to this comment

Right in between Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama - and on the other side (complete opposite!) of the spectrum from G. W. Bush I might add!!!!!!!

So, in case no-one's figured it out by now, surprise, surprise, I'm a Libertarian Lefty with beliefs in the middle of Communism/Collectivism and Anarchism -- poor Hume would be sooo dissapointed. On the other hand, I am aware that plans of government which suppose great reformation in the manner of mankind such as Plato and More can tend to be, as crticized, too imaginary - but one can hope, can't they.
