• Politics, schmolitics.

     

    All too often, the talking heads will try and sell us on their left-right baloney; but what are "left" and "right," exactly?  The real political spectrum is, of course, not a spectrum at all, but a hideous-looking cube.

     

    The premise is simple:  Answer questions.  Get a result.  Smile at your new sense of self-understanding.

     

    You will be judged scored on three axes: Economic Liberty, Personal Liberty, and Political Liberty.  Higher scores imply freedom, while lower scores imply restraint, in a given category.  You can skip questions if you must, but try not to -- your result will be less accurate that way.
