Well, that sounds about right. According to the Political Compass Test I’m lefter and more anarchal than the Dalai Lama, but then if I headed up a country and was worshipped as a living god, it’s hard to see how I would be able to resist the temptation to, you know, believe them a little bit. Of my hacker/Anonymous friends who have taken this, I’m the most authoritarian and also the most leftist. As Disconnect on Facebook said, “To be fair you are only an authoritarian compared to rest of us anarchists.. You are the most anarchist authoritarian on the planet and the most authoritarian anarchist in the room.”

I'm not quite as lefty as Stalin, it says. But Stalin was a fascist.

And what are you?

  1. Not quite as far out as you but a respectable number in the lower left quadrant

    Economic Left/Right: -5.62
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.41

  2. Because I like the randomness and confusion of unthreaded ones, and also because threaded comments become unreadable after four replies. As you know, I aspire to a lot more back and forth.
