Dear Political Compass,

We are a group of San Francisco Libertarians who have been taking your
test and discussing the results. We applaud your effort to break out of
the normal LEFT/RIGHT

paradigm by inserting the Authoritarian/Libertarian axis. We also have
some feedback for you that we believe might get better answers out of
those who take the test.

For example....

One of our members comments: The questions did seem to warrant more than
two dimensions of analysis. It also bugged me that many of the questions
that I assume they counted toward economic liberty were actually about
*corporations*, which have little to do with economic liberty as I see
it. That is, a corporation making deals with corrupt governments is
hardly "libertarian", which is how a lot of "globalization" turns out.
And I also certainly don't equate "right" with economic liberty.

And another:

The wording makes it unclear....

Q: There is now a worrying fusion of information and entertainment.

Here the key word is "worrying". I have no doubt that there's fusion of
information and entertainment. The fact that this exists doesn't worry
me. The fact that people can't seem to be able to see it as propaganda
is what's worrying and not the fact that it I answered

Here are some other examples:

Sex outside marriage is usually immoral

A same sex couple in a stable, loving relationship, should not be
excluded from the possibility of child adoption

Pornography, depicting consenting adults, should be legal for the adult

What goes on in a private bedroom between consenting adults is no
business of the state

No one can feel naturally homosexual

It's fine for society to be open about sex, but these days it's going
too far.

Note that only one of these actually addresses the relationship of the
state in these issues. That means one can have a personal view that
doesn't relate to their opinion politically. As this is supposed to be a
political test, that line of questioning should be made more clear
and/or be taken into consideration.

So there you have it. If you have any comments or questions, feel free
to reply to the list. We appreciate the work you are doing and would
like to see more references in the lower half of the Authority/Liberty

Best regards,

Michael Denny
