ACCORDING TO YOUR ANSWERS,

The political description that
fits you best is...

.

It's how they asked the questions was how I had to answer. If you ask a question a different way the response may have been different.


STATIST

STATISTS want government to have a great deal of power

over the economy and individual behavior. They frequently

doubt whether economic liberty and individual freedom

are practical options in today's world. Statists tend to distrust

the free market, support high taxes and centralized

planning of the economy, oppose diverse lifestyles,

and question the importance of civil liberties.



The RED DOT on the Chart shows where you fit on the political map.

To get the image to work, I had to right click on it, hit properties, copy the URL, then insert the URL here using the image button on the toolbar (third from left).

I noticed that mine said that I believe in high taxes. That's not true but in this system that we live under sometimes high taxes are necessary. It would be nice to know we had the money in the bank to build 25 nuclear power stations Or develop a Hot Rocks energy grid Or whatever alternative the public decides on. I believe that, if we are short of hospitals the public establishes a 'Build More Hospitals tax' which could be $1 per week via income tax (yes it's the working man that will pay for the pensioner, unemployed and handicap). This way we get the hospitals without restricting needed capital to other areas.

This country has a large infrastructure for a small population so taxes should be noticeably higher than what they are now to pay for everything.

Thatcher was a bit before my time.

Clinton seems pretty sensible, but I don't know a lot about him. He gave a very positive review of a book I read recently - "Natural Capitalism." I also liked the book, but it gave some mixed messages about the role of government and laissez fare capitalism. Also, in "Stupid White Men" it sounded like he was in power for a long time and achieved almost nothing for the environment, then just before he got voted out he introduced and passed legislation that would help the environment - only it wouldn't come into effect for another 8 years. Of course Bush revoked the legislation. It seemed like a cynical ploy to hold the voters to ransom. Rather than giving the people what they wanted up front, and what he was elected for, he waited till the next election and threw them a few crumbs that they would only hold onto if they re-elected him.

From what you say it sounds like you do indeed support higher taxes. An additional separate tax is no different from raising the taxes that are already there.

I tried to get the graph to come up - but not as computer literate as I thought.  However I was surprised at coming No. 1 as an American Liberal then an Anarcho-Communist which probably seems a bit more realistic.

Interesting little tests.

Maybe they could develop this site to include a Political Philosophy Quiz where your political philosophy is displayed in your profile.

You mean OzPolitic? Better profiles would be great. I'll look into it, but it wouldn't be easy. In the interim I have offered people custom profiles - see the feedback board.

I tried to substitute a picture to represent myself on my profile,  one of those little moving pictures - but found it too difficult - even though I transferred the URL into the appropriate space.  I will try again soon, when my concentration is a bit better and add some more detail.

I will also have another go at http://www.selectsmart.com/FREE/select.php?client=no.
