    I like to keep an open mind about things, but there does need to be order to society. The reality is most people are stupid, and government is protecting people from themselves, intrusive as it may be. It's nice to think of society, race, class, as the way they should be.... Reality is what it is.

    I don't think it really works for Europeans.

    Think it does though, as I generally find in the EU, that we tend to be more Liberal and open in our politics, than say the states do, which tend to be more religion based and more closed.

    Look at Germany and the UK right now..... Both have multi-party politics, and also right now, more than one party controlling government, and generally you will find by that nature, that those government's tend to be more open to compromise, than say how government operates in the States.

    That's why I don't think it works. Some of the questions just wouldn't be asked and others are presentaed as black or white when you could argue them in a far more subtle way. Not to do down the more open minded of our our US mates.

    I remember taking this test a long time ago when it was posted around here. In some ways, I think it could be a way to monitor one's political beliefs but there's no way it could actually survey one's actions. I could believe 1+1=2 yet still write down 3 if I was driven to do so. The same way someone can be ideologically to the left or the right and still be drawn towards the center when it comes to how they make their beliefs materialize. With that said, here's my latest results:

    Economic Left/Right: -4.62
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.72

    Many of the questions do seem far too black and white, and simplistic. Although, I think there's something to the having to make a "difficult decision". The test is surely not an exhaustive examination of an individual's belief system. As a quick gauge of where one falls on a simply crafted "political spectrum", however, it seems to function sufficiently.

    I have no input as to its efficacy with regards to Europeans.
