Political Philosophy Quiz

I decided to take the Political Philosophy Quiz after seeing Steve’s results.

Here are the results –
Conservative/Progressive score: 9
You are a social progressive. You generally consider yourself a humanist first. You probably think that religion and patriotism go too far in society. You probably consider yourself to be a citizen of Earth first rather than a citizen of your country.

That sounds about right.

Capitalist Purist/Social Capitalist score: 6
You are a Moderate Capitalist. You support an economy that is by and large a free market, but has public programs to help people who can't help themselves or need a little help. Pretty much you believe in the American economy how it currently is.

Again sounds about right.

Libertarian/Authoritarian score: 1
You are libertarian. You think that the government is making way too many unnecessary laws that are taking away our innate rights. You believe that the government's job is primarily to protect people from harming other people, but after that they should mind their own business, and if we give the government too much power in controlling our lives, it can lead to fascism.

Yeah…that’s me.

Pacifist/Militarist score: 4
You're a Moderate. You think that in very rare occasions, the United States should invade a country in order to make the world better by spreading democracy or ending a tyrants rule. You also think that defense is very important, and we shouldn't lower the defense budget. You think that, while the Iraq War probably was a mistake, that we can make the world a better place by sticking with it and spreading democracy in the middle east.

Again, this sounds like me.

Overall, you would most likely fit into the category of Libertarian

I can see that. I’m still leaning more towards the Green Party but we’ll see.

My Reactions --
Overall I think that this was a pretty good quiz, it was simple and the questions didn’t seem too slanted. Also I think the results were pretty spot on.
