If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations.
The wording of the first question has a Marxist intent built right into it, what makes you think humanity is not served by corporations.
The second isn't any better

I'd always support my country, whether it was right or wrong.
Who is the arbitrator between right and wrong, the UN or God?


This is not a usable test. Have you stopped beating your wife?

What rubbish, I didn't even go to the 2nd page.

I imagine the DUmmies would like this though.

I was thinking the same thing. These questions are as loaded as they come.

I don't think there is a single Q. that is not Marxist in nature in that "Test".


No one chooses his or her country of birth, so it's foolish to be proud of it.Typical statement of an open boarders leftist.


Our race has many superior qualities, compared with other races.Typical viewpoint of any leftist of those on the right. They all must be racist.


Military action that defies international law is sometimes justified.Trap Q. set in there by the leftist who thinks President Bush broke Inter. law with the Iraq war.


People are ultimately divided more by class than by nationality.Class warfare.


"from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" is a fundamentally good idea.Marxist creed.


Land shouldn't be a commodity to be bought and sold.WOW.


Those with the ability to pay should have the right to higher standards of medical care .LOL, what do you think Obamacare created with their "Gold" and "Platinum" standards. What do you think Cuba's healthcare system is?


All people have their rights, but it is better for all of us that different sorts of people should keep to their own kind.???


People with serious inheritable disabilities should not be allowed to reproduce.Can we declare liberals have serious inheritable disabilities?

FYI This "Test" was created by a DUmmy.

Talk about centrists! Laoshi, you are there,

Mine?

Your Political Compass

Economic Left/Right: 2.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.28


For those of you who did not get past page one, later pages take a completely different slant. It put me pretty close to where I see myself in 2 dimensional polyticks. As we all know, it is truly multi-dimensional and can have many more areas of contrast.

Welcome to public education. I went to a third grade open house at a local school. The kids were learning about California history. They had all made little replicas of the missions founded by Junipero Serra. In some of the accompanying grammar lessons and spelling tests, the words "social justice" stuck out like a sore thumb.

It really ticked me off to see the subtle way they were injecting the left's language and beliefs into the unsuspecting kids, parents and teachers. Most of these teachers were probably trained in the same manner and graduates of liberal colleges, so I seriously doubt that even they picked up on it.

Yes, these sort of things aren’t to be taken seriously.
Out of all the recent American Presidents, my favourite would be Reagan. I can still recall several of his quotes, because to me they’re truisms and I believe he was sincere in a lot of what he said, unlike today’s crowd of Marxist Democrats and RINOs.

Here’s my quick list of beliefs. So where would they put me in American politics?

1. I believe in the power of the individual over that of government.
Government exists to serve people and not the other way around.

2. I believe in small government managing affairs, without forcing their ideological opinions on the population.
The government is there to manage and having been voted in with a majority, the government is entitled to manage in a way in which it sees fit, but it is not the government’s job to force its views onto others.

3. I believe in inequality as a natural occurrence and that some people will swim and some will sink
It is not the job of government to try to equalise a society using anti-discrimination laws or taxpayers to fund it. Equal opportunities, not equal outcomes.

4. I believe in patriotism not nationalism. Nationalism leads to exceptionalism and the need to control others. The difference is between a love of one’s country and a belief that it has superior rights over others.

5. I believe that the culture (and therefore the morals and values) of society should be preserved and not be changed to suit that of immigrants
If Americans were a small recently discovered tribe, there’ be uproar at mass foreign immigration, culture change and what would be seen as backdoor colonialization.

6. I believe in ‘We the people’, not ‘We the government’ or ‘Change you can believe in’
The Founding Fathers, although never envisaging mass transient populations and the modern world, knew enough to provide a constitution to protect the individual. They also warned against giving that power away. Electing a Marxist President, trying to make everyone equal or policing the world is not quite what they had in mind.
