    Political Compass

    Political Compass is a genius plot, rather than placing political viewpoints on a single dimension, left to right (which puts people like Ghandi and Stalin quite close...), it plots them in 2 dimensions. Economic views are on the x-axis, communism far left and free market far right, and then social views are on the y-axis, totalitarianism up and libertarianism down.

    Mainly, I'm sharing this because I'm a nosy bugger, and I think it would be interesting to see the playstuff statistics.

    I understand political views can be quite personal, so feel free to ignore this completely, I don't wanna try and force anyone to share when they don't want

    For interest, I have a group view to plot us all on here, but please, do the short quiz and find your own space BEFORE checking it out, to remove any peer bias from the result Post your result (spoilered) in the thread, or pm me to make the graph

    Excuse the multiple mes. I'm taking the test a few times, to see how varied it is (rather) and to get an average eventually.

    Economic Left/Right -2.50 Social Libertariant/Authoritarian -0.56.

    I find that strange because I would have though that I would be slightly more authoritarian than libertarian (only slightly) but apparently not!

    Expected to be much more authoritarian and a little more rightist, but I guess this could be accurate by American political standards.

    Nah, the group chart in OP grabs the data from the URL so you would have to copy the URL to the modified form and edit Seros post.

    Nothing exciting or unexpected in my results anyway

    Yeah, this means you can remove names while looking at it, in case some areas get a little busy, and it won't affect future views for anyone

    The Imperium of Man is able to traverse the Warp with difficulty when their Emperor concentrates from his golden life support machine and lights the way. Unfortunately, because the Emperor has the attention span of the average 5-year-old Pokemon fanboy, this means that many an unfortunate Imperial ship has had the WTF WHERE'D THE LIGHTS GO experience, which in the Warp is invariably fatal.
