Political Compass

Here's an interesting little tool to help determine one's political compass, transcending the traditional one dimensional left-right line. Fundamental political differences cannot be reflected on a single line, neither can differences of opinion on social or economic policies.

The political compass address these issues and proposes a two dimensional approach, where economic and social policies appear on two different axes.



Here are my results:

Economic Left/Right: -5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.21


This places me somewhere in between Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama…
Not bad company!

J'suis pas sûr d'avoir pigé toutes les questions, mais j'suis un chouilla au dessus de Mandela...
