Forums - Politics Discussion - The Political Spectrum quiz

Gave up when I saw the test continues on for multiple pages. Also, too many of the questions were loaded and didn’t provide proper answers. Some questions didn’t give enough information, what is “balanced news” for example? Balance between good news and bad news? Journalism and current events? Entertainment and the weather?



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I would assume news coverage that is fair and unbiased, rather than framed in subjectivism and favoring one political party or another. That is what I took it to mean anyway. 



Completely unsurprising I am a left social libertarian.

As for the seeming bias and strange wording: the quiz has to cover a broad range of opinions, so some questions seem extreme for you all. Also it is easier to an opinion to an extreme position like 'Should gay marriage be forbidden?' (agree/disagree) than something more open, like 'How do you feel about gay marriage on a scale from 1-10?'. The religious bias is also easy to explain: for many politics and ethics is intertwined, and religion often informs personal ethics.

Some of those questions are rubbish.
I.E. "School science classes should teach intelligent design."

Intelligent design is inherently non-scientific and thus not science and thus should not be taught in a scientific capacity.
Not unless it has actual empirical scientific evidence to backup it's assertions.

Either way, my results don't really surprise, I have already tried to stay as near the center as possible regardless of issue except for religion and border control, seems I am the only user here who is very left-leaning on culture, but very right-leaning on foreign policy.

Your results are the closest to mine yet, both slightly authoritarian, both pretty much centrist, both neo-conservative in terms of foreign policy, but you are a cultural liberal while I'm a cultural conservative.

A little black/white and oddly ambiguous in parts for my for my liking, but interesting nonetheless.

Machina - embedded image was breaking the thread, so I've deleted it. The results are in the post below this one anyway.
