    Default Where's your political compass?

    http://www.politicalcompass.org/

    my results :
    Your political compass

    Economic Left/Right: -3.12
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.87


    closer to libertarian left, no surprise there for me

    some of the questions are kind of weird "There is now a worrying fusion of information and entertainment."

    some i was up in the air about and had a hard time answering like "People are ultimately divided more by class than by nationality." and "The prime function of schooling should be to equip the future generation to find jobs."

    where do you fall?

    Yeah, I kinda wished there had been a "neutral" option on some of those questions cause I clearly could not agree or disagree with those questions because it didn't truely represent the way I really felt.
