WHERE DOES YOUR POLITICAL COMPASS POINT?
This has been around for a while, I think, but I just rediscovered it. The Political Compass can tell you which way you swing socio-politically.

Yes, the test questions can be difficult to answer in a clear-cut way. But that's the point of these types of exercises--they aim to get your unqualified reaction to hypothetical situations.

Myself? According to my score, I'm a left-wing libertarian--an oddball combo if there ever was one. (I bet the spanking question did me in.) On the plus side, the Dalai Lama shares the same inclinations, apparently. So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.
