"Those with the ability to pay should have the right to higher standards of medical care."

Now there's a loaded question!

(I'm disappointingly middle-of-the-road - 0.88/-0.77 - can only assume some outlier answers cancelled out others.)

Test is here.

To be honest Obo, I think the reason my score on the authoritarian libertarian axis isn't further from the centre is because the test asks a lot of questions that don't actually have much to do with either economic issues or with how the state should intervene in social issues such as whether people are divided by class or nationality, wheter their are savage and civilised peoples or the relative importance of business people and artists.

Left: 6.11, Authoritarian: 5.53. Which is somewhere between Josef Stalin and Robert Mugabe.

Perhaps I filled the form out wrong.

I'm a small government, free market social and economic liberal, not a politician, so I don't actually show up on this chart at all.

Economic Left/Right: 7.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 4.21.

Well. I am next door neighbours with George W Bush!

Must work on that. TOO bloody commy for my liking.

Blimey, I occupy exactly the same place as the Dalai Lama. Now that is unnerving...
