Where Do You Fall On The Political Spectrum?
The Green Party likes to tell us that politics isn't about left vs right, but rather between moving backwards and moving forward. Although I think this mantra is seriously flawed, I do think that politics is about more than simply left vs right. That's why I find this website so interesting. It enhances our understanding of political ideology by transforming the traditional left-right dichotomy into at grid which also takes into consideration our views on what are described as libertarian/authoritarian issues. Take the test at politicalcompass.org to find out where you fall on the political spectrum. You can even check out your score in relation to prominent political leaders from Canada and abroad.
