What's going on here? I ain't no stinking libturd! I still think this quiz is missing some key issues that would pull me closer to the center of left / right.

I think it's a shift in the scoring of the test, combined with problems in the phrasing of the questions given the current political climate. I think everyone with the exception of Neuservrrat is being underscored on authoritarian issues. With as intertwined as the US government is with private businesses, it's hard to separate domination by state institutions from domination by private businesses. This likely gets taken into account by most people with they answer questions, which is why most people fall along a line from the bottom left to the top right of the quiz.

That's definitely true.

I haven't looked at the questions but this is obviously an older test and social questions such as drug legalization probably fall somewhere along the bottom left a decade ago and now, aside from the weirdos, that is a pretty mainstream view.

The other thread got me thinking about the left-right spectrum. Its a measure of the degree at which you think you should have to work for what you get. I hate that we have people who want to sit back while other people work.

(left)Believe in working for pay<--------------------------------------->Believe in other people working for you (right)

Being in the middle means you believe in a combination of working for money and using some of that money to steal other people's work.

Some of the people on the right end believe in actual slavery, while some believe in scamming while some believe in mugging. They are all forms of theft. Either way, you are living off the fruit of someone else's labour.

no one on the right side of that graph is arguing for universal income and handouts for all. You may want to rethink your interpretation of the graph.

I didn't say anything about universal. They want people to work for their benefit only and certainly not the benefit of all because that would mean less for them and require them to do more actual work.
