I learned of the Political Compass Test a month ago, while reading Bill Gusky's ArtBlog Comments. It isn't a perfect measure of one's political positioning, but it serves as a useful litmus test.
Interestingly, as Bill points out, many art blog readers land in the lower left quadrant (economically "left" and socially libertarian). Take my score of -8.50/-6.36, for example. The test makers consider me a little left of the Dalai Lama on both axises. While I find that result somewhat surprising, I'm honored to be in such good company.
Take the test. Tell me where you are placed.
