Within a hair of Gandhi

Now that I think about it, I believe that this is the really busy time of year for my brother in Vermont: Town Meeting.

The discussion of Rex Stout's Might As Well Be Dead is going pretty well, but, in the interest of not letting this blog stagnate, I'd like to mention a fascinating quiz that I took over at The Political Compass. The premise is that, as The Political Compass says, "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 quiz allows you to see where you stand, politically, in a more meaningful way. That's all I'm going to say, because the quizmasters don't want you to know too much until after you've taken the quiz. But I recommend giving it a try.

If you'd let me know how you score, by leaving a comment, by sending me a message (link to the right), or by posting on your own blog and sending me the link, I'd appreciate it. For the record, I scored -4.88, -5.44, which put me a hair to the right of and a hair below Gandhi. You'll know what I mean by "to the right of and below" when you take the quiz.

pretty close to mine!
Economic Left/Right: -5.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.18

they don't have the charts sync'd up but i believe that puts me right between ghandi and the dalai lama.

good quiz
Economic Left/Right: -8.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.26

I'm right in there with the dalai lama.

I think I did something like that in Sociology way back in 1996.
Keri!!! -8.00??? I stand in awe of your liberalness. Seriously. You are a liberal's liberal.

And as far as Sociology goes, 1996 wasn't "way back." I took Sociology in 1976. That was "way back" :)
LOL! Yeah...I scare myself sometimes I'm so friggin' liberal. And I work for the government! Go figure!
