Brother found this political test, which seem's pretty good. Wonder what you guys would turn out to be.

My results, if you want to see how they turned out (this was me filling things out with my legitimate views):

Quote

Social Attitude Test

Political Values
Progressivism 82.5
Socialism 100
Tenderness 75

Your test scores indicate that you are a tender-minded ultra-progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a university professor. It appears that you are tolerant towards religion, and have a compassionate and sympathetic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear communist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a cultural marxist.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a sensible pascifistic egalitarian with many strong convictions.

This concludes our analysis; we hope you found your results accurate, useful, and interesting.

Unlike many other political tests found on the Internet which base themselves on untested (and usually ideologically motivated) ideas, this inventory is adapted from Hans Eysenck's own political inventory which was developed after extensive empirical investigations in the 20th Century.

That was interesting..

Progressivism - 45
Socialism - 56.25
Tenderness - 28.125

Your test scores indicate that you are a tough-minded cultural centrist; this is the political profile one might associate with a jaded materialist. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a balanced attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a neoconservative.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a sensible principled centrist with few strong convictions.

This concludes our analysis; we hope you found your results accurate, useful, and interesting.

Considering what job i know you have, that's very very surprising. Even more suprising we get on so well being apparently on the opposite sides of the political spectrum. :P Entertaining one to read though.

For those who don't know what Laissez-faire is, it is the practice of keeping the government unconnected to the public life (mostly dealing with just justice and foreign policy), and worked relatively well for countries prior to industrialisation. Commonly all the support they would provide would be Poor Houses or Poor Laws, with the mass majority of benefits going to the poor coming from charity, with insurance by Friendly Societies. They would commonly leave no government regulators over industries to "encourage" competitiveness among companies. The system began being dissolved by the Whigs/Liberals in Britain during the late 19th century, and lead to the Welfare State in Britain after 1945.

munt wise, it's interesting, you got pretty much the same socialist score as my brother (he was something like Progressive 78, socialist 56.5, 75 Tenderness, it described him as a Liberal), and a better progressive score. Peculiar.

I really think age plays a large part in your responses to this test. I found myself answering dead in the middle on many questions that I know I would have put a far extreme answer on when I was younger.

But I am amused to find that the test labeled me an anarchist, not at all how I would describe myself.  ; )

I would say age doesn't play as big a role as you would expect. Munt seems to got a strong convictions result, and he's at a decently advanced age, while my brother got a result saying he was a centred Liberal. CoduX resulted in a neo-conservative, which is a mildly right wing, more so than the tradition conservatives.

Put yeah, i wouldn't have labelled you an anarchist at all.

yes I was wondering what is even a neo-conservative? Pls explain more Butler the Political Genius (being dead serious here and not making fun of you, you have a lot of knowledge in the ways of politics).

Hmmm... surprised at how low the socialism is. The rest sounds about right though: "a considerate realistic egalitarian with several strong convictions."

Best way i can think of explaining it is looking at the differences of the 19th century Tory party, and the post 1945 Conservative Party. The Tories were very much anti reform, except a few like Disraeli, and wanted to maintain as little government intervention in peoples lives.They tended to be Landowners and for a long time, related to peers (members of the house of lords), and could be what you called aristocrats. They would be fairly right wing, and really only desire the governments input on justice, policing and foreign policy. Neo Conservatives are middle-right wing, and want to do less regulations than socialist counterparts, to try and encourage a far more competitive capitalist environment.

The Political Spectrum In very very general & vague senses Progresses from the Left (socialist) Wing to the Right (Capitalist) wing through groups such as Marxism, Leninism, Stalinism, Neo-Stalinism, Fabians, Socialists (of an astounding variety), Liberals (of an astounding variety) Neo-Conservatives, Republicans, Laissez-Faire Conservatives, (Italian) Facism, (British/American) Fascism & Nazism. There are a lot of fuzzy areas as you tend to find parts of both wings in every party, as many communist dictatorships borrowed systems that worked from the other side of the spectrum, fascists. A lot of parties also include religious or secular feelings, with the tendency being socialist parties were more secular, though most parties have become so. The more extreme down a wing one is, the tendency is ultra nationalism, though you can get moderate patriotic parties.

There's a hell of a lot of political ideologies out there, and they vary quite dramatically in groups such as "Communism" or "Fascism" where people tend to lump them together with the most well known example, namely Bolshevik & Nazi governments. It's worth having a look at figures such as Oswald Mosley, or the different breeds of these various terms exist. Democracy which we all take for granted, varies extremely in fairness, through bodies like electoral colleges, soviets, hustings and ballots, so the terms given won't pin point you to one of the selected political ideologies you belong to.

I also would rely on my self as i have no idea what Libertarians are.

Well, that seems to describe me rather well, actually. I'm not sure I'd call myself *ultra*-progressive, and I have no idea what "sensible principled egalitarian" is supposed to mean, but all in all it seems rather accurate. Of course I always wonder how much these tests show what you would like your convictions to be as opposed to what they are in practice.

As for age being a factor: I think it is. As I get older, I find it harder to choose the extreme answers. Interesting that the test still seems to think I have strong convivtions.

I think this test, like any, depends on what mood you're in. At the same time, I think my views have changed a bit in the past year. Interesting to take this a few times and see how it varies.
This time:   

Progressivism 95
Socialism 37.5
Tenderness 56.25

I would like to say, looking at cultural marxism between last time and this... that doesn't actually fit me very well
