Middle-of-the-Road Clam

Or else, I have broken another test. I tried the questionnaire of these guys, which claims to move beyond the left/right continuum and plot your political beliefs on a two-dimensional surface. I have ended up very near the centre... in the 'Left-Libertarian' quadrant. Muahahaha! There is obviously a z-axis they haven't put in that I am out on the end of.

My nearest neighbours in idea-space appear to be Romano Prodi and the Dalai Lama. It seems like a nice quiet neighbourhood.

So, is anyone out there even more centrist than me? I am keen to find out...

Not me:

Economic Left/Right: -4.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.67

More leftist, more libertarian. Dyed in the wood hippie, me.

I was going to say, based on your little graph, that neo-libertarian anarchists don't do political questionaires, but then I saw Marco's comment.

BTW I saw Cameron Holmes today. He's working at JCU.

No wonder everyone with strong views (read any views)irritates me when they discuss politics

Curses! I have been well and truly out-centred.
By the way, you fine people are *exactly* the set of people who have reported their scores on the 'Are you Dr Clam?' quiz to me...

Hey, who doesn't like comparing themselves to Doctor Clam?

Testing, testing.
