Economic liberal/Social Libertarian. But apparently a mousy one:

-1.88
-2.77

I may have overthought some of the questions. Like "A significant advantage of a one-party state is that it avoids all the arguments that delay progress in a democratic political system." Well, yeah, I think China is a good example of that -- what does that do to your score?

I struggled with the exact same question. Eventually I decided not to "overthink" it and just answer. The thing about tests like this is that they decontextualize everything and don't allow for anything other than black and white answers. Still, it was kind of fun.

I was so relieved to see that I was much closer to Gandhi than I was to Dumbya. -6.63; -6.56

I may have leaned a bit more liberal on some of the economic questions today than I would on a different day. I usually score right in the middle on these things.
