Chris Joy!
 
2002-03-03 04:13:13 PM  
Wow, (Some Guy) is on a roll today.
 
2002-03-03 04:15:57 PM  
Left-leaning Libertarian... yah, as if I didn't know that.
 
2002-03-03 04:16:22 PM  
I already took this a few days ago.It says I have Libertarian tendencies.Which I already pretty much know.
 
2002-03-03 04:16:53 PM  
it said I was a baddude. then made some sort of woo woo sound. slut.
 
2002-03-03 04:17:03 PM  
I got (-1, -1), which means I am closer to the Libertarians and the Left.

Dude, this thing is awsome. I was a bit disappointed, though, getting the coordinates (-3, -1.08), meaning I'm a leftist and a slight libertarian. If you asked me, though, I consider myself to be an authoritarian and would not have a problem with Communism. However, I do disagree with Stalin's Communism (really Socialism), so I guess that does make sense.
 
2002-03-03 04:17:38 PM  
Oh god. Please tell me this is small-l libertarian.
 
2002-03-03 04:17:57 PM  
Think the site is farked. Up to 4th page and it's hanging
 
2002-03-03 04:19:13 PM  
nooooo stop using it i'm almost through!
 
2002-03-03 04:19:34 PM  
The site is farked, it won't load for me at all. Not even the bastard of a first page. I wonder what cock and coont translate to on the filter...
 
2002-03-03 04:21:37 PM  
"coont"? The filter gives you a Middlesex accent?!
 
2002-03-03 04:22:43 PM  
Well shiat, I guess it does ge me the Middlesex accent.
 
2002-03-03 04:22:55 PM  
I got it to open page 1 then it was farked by page 2.
 
2002-03-03 04:23:01 PM  
I saw this many months ago and I have to question it's validity somewhat. Everyone I know that takes it winds up somewhere in the bottom left quadrant (left/libertarian), even people who are quite obviously of a different political bent.
 
2002-03-03 04:23:28 PM  
daaa... link is farked :P
 
2002-03-03 04:24:04 PM  
My ladyfriend calls hers a coonie.
 
2002-03-03 04:24:16 PM  
Oh, good. I'm glad I wasted my time. I am on the final page, I click the button to find out my results. I get a cgi script error. So I go back... oh yeah! Missing from cache! Good! Fark this farking fark crap.
 
2002-03-03 04:25:48 PM  
Yep I got the Same message!
Weee What a Waste of 5 Mins!!!
 
2002-03-03 04:27:27 PM

Do you still beat your wife?
 
2002-03-03 04:29:12 PM  
..and just what would the results of the leaders of the parties be???
 
2002-03-03 04:29:27 PM  
hmmmmmmmmm

Economic Left/Right: 3.00
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -1.79

I think that means i'm crazy or something.
 
2002-03-03 04:32:09 PM  
People who can work but don't shouldn't expect to eat.
 
2002-03-03 04:32:28 PM  
Economic Left/Right: -3.38
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -4.97

I'm crazier.
 
2002-03-03 04:32:43 PM  
no i guess it means i'm a neo-liberalist. Which could mean that i'm crazy.
 
2002-03-03 04:32:56 PM  
Somehow, I worry about people who need a farkable webpage to determine their political leanings.

It kind of reminds me of people who call up phone psychics to pay $5 a minute to hear someone guess things they already know about themselves.
 
OBB
2002-03-03 04:35:51 PM  
Economic Left/Right: 1.38
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -2.31

Well, that puts me dang close to centre...
 
2002-03-03 04:36:46 PM  
Your political compass

Economic Left/Right: -1.63
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -4.15

Hurrah. The website was able to correctly tell me what I already thought.
 
2002-03-03 04:37:18 PM  
This is a stupid question. "It's fine for society to be open about sex, but these days it's going too far." If I put disagree am I saying "It's fine for society to be open about sex and it isn't going to far" or am I saying "No! Society SHOULDN'T be open about sex!"

Anyway, I come out as:

Economic Left/Right: -6.38
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -6.41

More Libertarian than Gandhi and just about as far Left.
 
2002-03-03 04:37:25 PM  
Left/Right: -0.50
Auth/Liber: -0.21

Smack dab in the middle.

Jeebus Kryste, though, could those questions be more loaded/biased/backhanded?
 
2002-03-03 04:38:52 PM  
Skwidd-That's nice and all,but when many full time jobs don't even pay enough to cover the basics(rent,food and power),then what?They're working,but not making it.And not everyone can,wants,or needs to work in IT or some other high paying,technical field.It's a national problem,we have a lot of high paying fields of work,and then we have a lot of low paying fields,with no solid middle ground.But that's just my opinion.

Economic Left/Right: -3.75
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -3.74

hmmm... some of those questions were poopy. i wished there was a 'maybe' option :P
 
2002-03-03 04:40:06 PM  
Foodbunny-If you disagree with that question,I'd say it means you think that society is fine sexually and is not going of the rails.
 
2002-03-03 04:40:28 PM  
Yeah, a "Don't Care" option would have been quite useful.
 
2002-03-03 04:41:17 PM  
Kthulhu, that's what I decided since it was on a page with a bunch of other liberal-worded sex questions. It still should have been worded better.
 
2002-03-03 04:41:24 PM  
1St Question: "If globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations" and already I doubt the accuracy of the test.
 
2002-03-03 04:41:29 PM  
Put those kids in the workhouses! The little bastards better be productive or no second helping of soup for them! No workee, no eatee.

The questions do seem to have been written from a rather leftie perspective. It seems like it's hard to come out as right-wing unless you're a doofus right-winger.

from the Bruce's site...

'Someone hacked www.godhatesfags.com (copy) with the words "nothin against 'First Amendment hosting' we support u just not some of ur sites". So if I understand correctly, they support the first amendment as long as they agree with what is being said? It doesn't work that way idiots.'

from Metafilter..

'(In)famous anti-gay site hacked (copy) - The defacement says, in part, "nothin against 'First Amendment hosting' we support u just not some of ur sites". So if I understand correctly, they support the first amendment as long as they agree with what is being said? Doesn't this seem a poor form of protest?'

just marvelous to have your stuff linked.

I mean... damn... of all the places in the world for this.. my stuff is the source for this on somewhat big sites.

http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/9218

only if Geocities, Tripod, Angelfire, every other big free site and place didn't restrict traffic so much.

Spoken like a truly unbiased perspective.

Well said CrazyEddie!

I'm not sure if this was the right result.

You mean that if they didn't have that question, you'd trust the accuracy of a CGI-based web test written by some random person wholeheartedly? :)

It's farked but I'd probably be further to the left of Karl Marx.

What do I win?

If I were a UK politician, I would be Simon Hughes.
