Just a few propositions to start with, concerning — no less — how you see the country and the world.1. If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations.
A: agree. Because: these people are pols; the "correct" answer is clearly "serve humanity". Everyone hates evil multinationals.
2. I'd always support my country, whether it was right or wrong.
A: agree. Because: they are Tories.
3. No one chooses his or her country of birth, so it's foolish to be proud of it.
A: disagree. Tories are proud of Britain.
4. Our race has many superior qualities, compared with other races.
A: disagree. Because: meh, crap question, but these are pols.
5. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
A: agree. Because: meh, hard one to guess on their behalf.
6. Military action that defies international law is sometimes justified.
A: disagree. Because: they're Tories, they believe in Law; if they want to defy International law theyll do so by pretending it is other than it is.
7. There is now a worrying fusion of information and entertainment.
A: agree. Because: its the kind of thing the Daily Mail loves.
Well, that's a sample of detail. I got bored though so the rest is briefer.
Now, the economy. We're talking attitudes here, not the FTSE index.
People are ultimately divided more by class than by nationality: agree.
Controlling inflation is more important than controlling unemployment: agree.
Because corporations cannot be trusted to voluntarily protect the environment, they require regulation: agree.
"from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" is a fundamentally good idea: strong disagree.
It's a sad reflection on our society that something as basic as drinking water is now a bottled, branded consumer product: disagree.
Land shouldn't be a commodity to be bought and sold: strongly disagree.
It is regrettable that many personal fortunes are made by people who simply manipulate money and contribute nothing to their society: disagree.
Protectionism is sometimes necessary in trade: agree.
The only social responsibility of a company should be to deliver a profit to its shareholders: disagree.
The rich are too highly taxed: agree.
Those with the ability to pay should have the right to higher standards of medical care : disagree.
Governments should penalise businesses that mislead the public: agree.
A genuine free market requires restrictions on the ability of predator multinationals to create monopolies: agree.
The freer the market, the freer the people: agree.
After that I got too bored to copy them all down, so you'll just have to accept that I did my best to guess as fairly as I could. For example, what to do with "You cannot be moral without being religious". I think that many religious people believe this, and I suspect many Tories believe it, but I don't think I can imagine them coming out and saying it. Meh, in the end I said "agree" for them.
And the result was...
Absolute dead center. Well, close enough. L/R: 0.25. A/L: 0.15.
