Yep the buckets judging the test taker were developed AFTER the test, probably a judgement call by whoever put it on the internet.

I feel like a TRUE American because I would not support a Facist government and would be in the group that tried to turn it around. IOW I support the principles of the Constitution on which our country is based, not the vision of a particular leader.

2.3. So that makes me a bleeding airhead! Then again, I have had only one cup of coffee...

Even so, some of the questions were in such absolutist terms, I felt an automatic repugnance. We should all be on the alert for demagogy; our bias is an exploitable weakness.

For example, I have a personal vendetta against those who prey on children, and wife beaters. In spite of that, personal vendetta has no place in government, and should not be part of public policy. Of course, public policy is shaped by societal norms, which is why demagogy has such a seductive pull.

Then again, and yet, and yet. Yep I scored on the low end of the scale! :lol:

Yes, it's a tongue-in-cheek test. I think my favorite one was "pretend it's 1946 when you answer this one..." Try the "Political Compass" thread, that's a more thoughtful one. This one's just for fun, although I have to admit I am all for taking down wife and child beaters. I scored positively Mussolini-ish on that one. ;-)
