The Political Compass Test. Where do you sit on the Political Spectrum?

The Political Compass

Hitler, on an economic scale, was not an extreme right-winger. His economic policies were broadly Keynesian, and to the left of some of today’s Labour parties. If you could get Hitler and Stalin to sit down together and avoid economics, the two diehard authoritarians would find plenty of common ground.- The Political Compass

Take the Political Compass Test here.

At this Subreddit link I was asked what were my policy positions on size of Government, taxation, and social safety etc. So in pondering this I thought I would explore Google to see if there were any quizzes to find out my position on the political spectrum. And I found the Political Compass.

My results are below and it matches fairly well with where I saw myself standing on the political spectrum:

My Political Compass

Personally, I believe in a moderate market economy which entails a rigorous legal separation between the church and State (secular society), public and private education, social welfare system, universal health care, and very progressive income tax system without loopholes for the rich. I am quite liberal in my stance towards abortion, LGBT rights, and legalization of drugs.

I think Australia’s moderate market economy, healthcare, legal system, education and political system is ideally a good representation of what I lean towards and how I prefer a society governed.
