Their result for The political compass Test ...

95 % Cool, 15 % Uncool

Our political opinions are similar if you are > 70% cool! If you are > 60% uncool then maybe you should consider moving to Saudi Arabia:-) This is a very bare bones political test, and here's how I would have answered the questions: 1. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. No. This aphorism is more commonly known as the lesser of two evils theory and I completely disagree with it. I refuse to compromise my principles for short term gains. ------------------------------------------------------- 2. "My people right or wrong my people. My country right or wrong my country."Agree or Disagree? Strongly disagree. I think Orwell, in his notes on nationalism sums it up beautifully: "For those who feel deeply about contemporary politics, certain topics have become so infected by considerations of prestige that a genuinely rational approach to them is almost impossible. Out of the hundreds of examples that one might choose, take this question: Which of the three great allies, the U.S.S.R., Britain and the USA, has contributed most to the defeat of Germany? In theory, it should be possible to give a reasoned and perhaps even a conclusive answer to this question. In practice, however, the necessary calculations cannot be made, because anyone likely to bother his head about such a question would inevitably see it in terms of competitive prestige.....Every nationalist is capable of the most flagrant dishonesty, but he is also — since he is conscious of serving something bigger than himself — unshakeably certain of being in the right." ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 3. "There are times when humanitarian military intervention is not an option but is a moral obligation", Agree or Disagree? Strongly agree. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 4. "It is regrettable that many personal fortunes are made by people who simply manipulate money and contribute nothing to their society."Agree or Disagree? Disagree....unless you're born into royalty or inherit an insane amount of money of course. Yeah, I know it's a poorly framed question... ------------------------------------------------------------------ 5. "Marijuana should be legalized." Agree or Disagree? Agree.Not just marijuana but Opium too:-) Hitchens suggested that we should allow Afghanistan to legally export Opium to Western companies that use the plant in meds. It'll be a great source of revenue which can be put into improving infrastructure(roads, schools, hospitals etc). ---------------------------------------------------------------- 6. "Should Intelligent Design be taught in Biology classrooms with evolution?" F*** No! ------------------------------------------------------------------- 7. "Can Sharia law exist alongside our existing legal system?" No. Never. -------------------------------------------------------------------- 8. "Should the US continue to send aid to a country with a questionable human rights record like Saudi Arabia?" No. If you have any doubts, I suggest you look up Amnesty internationals page on Saudi Arabia. --------------------------------------------------------------------- 9. "The prime function of schooling should be to equip the future generation to find jobs."Agree or Disagree? Disagree. --------------------------------------------------------------------- 10. "Can you name the capital cities of the ten most populous countries in the world?" Yes. If you can't, then google it and memorize the list before you vote. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 11. "Multiculturalism and moral relativism are ruining this country",Agree or Disagree? Disagree. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 12. "Interracial/Inter cultural relationships never work" Strongly disagree. ----------------------------------------------------------------- 13. "No broadcasting institution, however independent its content, should receive public funding." Yes. ------------------------------------------------------------- 14. "The death penalty should be an option for the most serious crimes." No. ----------------------------------------------------------- 15. You cannot be moral without being religious. Strongly disagree. -------------------------------------------------------------- 16. I read astrological predictions on a daily basis. No, the stars don't align themselves with me in mind. -------------------------------------------------------------- 17. Pornography, depicting consenting adults, should be legal for the adult population. Sure. -------------------------------------------------------------- 18. A same sex couple in a stable, loving relationship, should not be excluded from the possibility of child adoption. Yes. ---------------------------------------------------------------- 19. Global warming is a hoax. No. ----------------------------------------------------------------- 20. I would boycott a company and it's products if I discovered that they treated their workers unfairly or broke certain environmental regulations . Of course. I already have a list of companies I refuse to support as a consumer. -------------------------------------------------------------------- 21. I have friends from all over but I would think twice before dating someone who is ethnically, culturally or religiously different. No. It doesn't matter. I don't care where you're from as long as we get along. -------------------------------------------------------------------- 22. Illegal immigration is the biggest threat we face. No. Maybe it is a threat if you are Pat Buchanan. But then here's Mr.Buchanan in his own words: http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=2553.
