Political compass

I had a play for the first time with my political compass ( this evening.

Economic Left/Right: 5.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.49


The analysis shows that my dot is sitting on Milton Friedman's dot.  That's not a bad thing - I could do worse.

I have no idea what to make of the analysis.  Or what to do with this information. So I have decided to be pleased with the results, and to continue to call myself a passive libertarian until I have a lightbulb moment.  Or a blogger tells me that I'm brilliant.  Or otherwise.  Or compares their political compass with mine.

0100hours is never a good hour to analyse these tests.

Well that got me thinking so I did it myself .... I came out as a Left-leaning Libertarian close to Nelson Mandela which, quite frankly, I was very happy about:))

Just about exactly where I sit which my son triumphantly told me confirms I am getting more conservative as I get older. I argued that it is because I am more economically right then him. He was the same distance from authoritarian but on the midway vertical line.
