Default Political Compass

Yeah, so I saw this thread twice before, but that was two years ago, and opinions change, right?

Take the test

So...



I'm curious: am I the only economic right-winger on TCoD?

Now I've got to find my old threads so see if I've changed at all. Not much if I have but it'll be interesting to check.

Umm... I'd say so. Virtually everyone in the preceding threads was in the bottom-left quadrant. Wonder why that is.

Like-minded people attract each other. The website owner is very left-leaning, so the community most likely began as fairly left-leaning and gradually it accumulates more like-minded people.

I don't feel like retaking it when i can just tell you that i'm 5 units right and 3 up.

EDIT: although actually, that's my personal views. My political views are probably very close to aobaru's.
