We shall be with our home boys, Mohandas, Tenzin and Nelson 

We took the Political Compass™ test, and found that we're Left Libertarian, in the same quadrant as Gandhi, the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela (though a tad closer to centre) and on the diametrically opposite side from Dubya, Blair, Berlusconi and Chirac.

We checked back to a similar but shorter quiz we took a year or so ago, and yeah, we're consistent. Well, actually not. We took the second test again, and find that we're further from the centre now.

Anyway, that wasn't why we decided to post when we should be meeting deadlines.

Political Compass also has a wrap-up quiz for when you're done with your test, a quiz that..
..offers some important facts that were barely, if ever, reported. It may raise your eyebrows and adjust the pedestals on which you placed some of your favourite icons. The chasm may be greater than you'd imagined.
Here are a few sample questions:
Who presented Chairman Mao Tse Tung with a bouquet of poems that lavishly praised the Chinese leader as the timely rain to nourish the land?

Who said : I do not consider Hitler to be as bad as he is depicted. He is showing an ability that is amazing and seems to be gaining his victories without much bloodshed?

Which politician travelled to Indonesia and received a $10 million donation from dictator Suharto to help party funds, while avoiding criticism of Indonesia's repressive policies, including political imprisonment?
Hint: They're all mentioned in the first paragraph of this post.

Go then, and take the Iconochasms quiz.

been meaning to do a post about this since i took the quiz following annie's post...

i'm hoping this will further inspire me. i seem to be a minus 8 on economic and minus 6.5 on libertarian views.

and i thought i was a fence-sitter!

didn't do the bonus quiz then. wonder how i missed it?
