Political questionnaires

Plenty of these about. Not serious but quite fun

Here’s a more pertinent one.

    Definitely seem to be turning into a hand wringing lib in my old age but haven't reached Chasey proportions. The questions were very loaded though

    Mine came out very similar to the two above, can't say that surprised me.

    Here’s my result.

    Now go back and answer truthfully RC. I don't believe that you can score as low as 11% and still have the views you do on covid lockdowns.

    Honest.

    Which questions do you think I would score highly on?

    There were quite a few questions about government control and surveillance that should have put you in the 20's, I think. Or did you adopt a "pre-Covid" mindset to answer the questions, because Covid is different?

    I left the questions in the middle where I don't care either way or didn't want to think about it. Even this pushes up your score.

    29% fwiw, but I don't think that really reflects how fascist I am. More it reflects that I'm introvert and in large part want other people to just fuch off.

    Yes I gave “pre-covid” answers.

    I think if you’re equating rona public health measures with fascism or elements thereof, you’re not really understanding what fascism is about.

    I was thinking only that the recent covid laws are quite authorotarian, and that related questions answered with those in mind would result in a higher score, thats all. Ditto a couple of the crime and punishment questions.

    17% for me, but would agree that the thing seemed very oddly designed, and would question how useful the results are.

    I answered pre-Islamic terrorism because anyone who conflates fascism with reasonable measures to protect national security doesn't really understand what fascism is about.

    Isn't the point that it creeps up slowly with reasonable justifications?

    You lot are more tenacious than me. I couldn't decide on the first question so gave up.

    Maybe it's me, but a thing can be fun and useful.

    I realise you are parodying Rick's post but Islamic terrorism goes back to at least the 1920s and arguably the 1870s.

    Do you know who is paying the test provider for the data gathering?
    Surprised some of you want to do/promote a data gathering exercise that could be used to weigh which levers to pull to get maximum support for fascist policies.

    For the record. I got called stupid (indirectly) for doing an IQ test earlier this year.

    You’re still giving an organisation data that could be used for modelling how to gain traction with fascist ideas.
    It’s a data driven world.

    I'm not sure you need an online survey to do that.

    A more general one. Might be fun/helpful to see where we all lie on this. Might even have had this on here before.

    Like I said, I don't put much stock in, but why not.

    Straight off with question 1 and an pretty questionable premise that globalisation should be 'for' something and then a false dichotomy of 'humanity' versus 'corporations'. What a load of guff. You have a weird idea of fun, RC.
