    The old one-dimensional categories of 'right' and 'left' are overly simplistic for today's complex political landscape. Find out where you stand compared to your friends, family, and historic political figures such as George Bush and Stalin.

    im tired of doing this test every few months. besides its a libertarian test so its slanted to look at things through their world view. there is no objectivity standard to this.

    Many of these questions were put in such a way as to elicit a very definate answer based on very ambigious questions though, so im not sure how accurately this represents my overall ideals.

    As expected, if I had answered the question...


    ...with "Strongly Agree" instead of my real answer, which was "Strongly Disagree", I would have gotten a 4.56.

    This is a reference to a specific characteristic of Hitler's personal mania, but in reality has nothing to do with any particular authoritarian ideology.
