Thanks to thegreenfairy who has inadvertently helped me better locate my political self by pointing me to the political compass, as well as being a very entertaining read. The compass test asks you six pages of questions and then returns your political bias in two dimensions: one being an economic left-right measure, the second being an authoritarian-libertarian axis best described on their site. So in future I hope to forestall political debate by quoting my numbers at would-be agitators: -0.88 economic left/right and -5.18 libertarian/authoritarian. Of course everyone knows that a full theory of politics is 11-dimensional, but I think there is much to be gained from a working two-dimensional theory.
