People talk about left and right, but I get concerned about authoritarian and libertarian, which can be either left or right.
I'm fairly close to the centre, slightly more left and slightly authoritarian. I didn't always have that smidgen of authoritarianism, but age has taught me that the less law there is the more the law of the jungle takes over. I also favour private enterprise (not capitalism). So I occupy about the same spot as Nelson Mandela was in, and not far from Gandhi. Labor used to be there too, but now is nearly as right wing as Libs and NP.

It's a while since I've done the test, so I'll do it again and report back!

Oops! I'm more left and more libertarian than once, but could have answered some questions differently, 'it depends' if that was an option.

Also I should have said that neo-liberalism is a huge bugbear for me. I'm progressive rather than conservative, but the neo-libs are worse than conservatism. Old time conservatives had old fashioned values, like church and family, a paternalistic attitude of responsibility for the 'poor'. That's lacking in neo-liberalism, which is only concerned with materialism and 'me, me, me.'

Dream I have not seen that before. =D= . Fascinating. Yes as I thought....I wear to the left quite comfortably.
By the way loved Dreams last post.

I'm very close to the bottom left corner. I expect ASIO has a file on me.
