What is your political compass ?

Just a left – right political scale is too simplistic.

Atleast you should consider a two dimensional map like the one politicalcompass.org proposes.

The old one-dimensional categories of ‘right’ and ‘left’, established for the seating arrangement of the French National Assembly of 1789, are overly simplistic for today’s complex political landscape.

The X axis takes the economic views while the Y measures social attitude. You can take the 6 page quiz which will tell you where you fall.
