The Politics Test

okcupid's politics test is pretty good. I think I've seen it before, but not for a while. 42 questions. My score is not surprising:

You are a Social Liberal (93% permissive)
and an... Economic Conservative (95% permissive)

You are best described as an Anarchist (95e/93s)

You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.

This YouTube video is a pretty good explanation of the chart (after clicking the "Political Ideologies" button):

I think the authors of the test didn't think through some of their questions too well. Things like "Do you think everyone has a right to the basic necessities of life?" Do they mean food, water, fire, shelter, or do they mean hamburgers, beer, air conditioning, and a house? Still, I scored as an anarchist.

I agree with Kent that the questions were just so-so. I scored 88 on both scales, which made me an anarchist though I'm not.

Hey Bill, I did a 4-part series on that test, outlining and expounding on all 42 questions a year or so ago.
