8values Political Test : Links I Like

I took the 8values test at 8values.github.io My result was Libertarian Capitalism. Was the first one of the kind I’ve taken, from the various political leaning tests available. May be straddling the fence on some issues, but with the wording of certain questions went with neutral/don’t know.

For example abortion, of which I was supportive of until I actually tried to understand what it entailed. I for certain want it to have no funding from taxation but unsure the solution to that is more state involvement through laws that lead to a growth usage of force. In a possible future stateless world, I would willingly join a freely chosen community or Dispute Resolution Organization that has laws against abortion. I still getting caught in thinking laws require the existence of a state

Give it a try, more about it below.

The following is from the site :

What is 8values?

8values is, in essence, a political quiz that attempts to assign percentages for eight different political values. You will be presented by a statement, and then you will answer with your opinion on the statement, from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, with each answer slightly affecting your scores. At the end of the quiz, your answers will be compared to the maximum possible for each value, thus giving you a percentage. Answer honestly!

What are the eight values?

There are four indendent axes – Economic, Diplomatic, State, and Society – and each has two opposing values assigned to them. They are:

Equality (Economic)
Those with higher Equality scores believe the economy should distribute value evenly among the populace. They tend to support progressive tax codes, social programs, and at high values, socialism.

Wealth (Economic)
Those with higher Wealth scores believe the economy should be focused on rapid growth. They tend to support lower taxes, privatization, deregulation, and at high values, laissez-faire capitalism.

Might (Diplomatic)
Those with higher Might scores believe in an aggressive, or hawkish, foreign policy. They tend to support high military spending, nationalism, rivalry with other countries, and at high values, rapid military expansion.

Peace (Diplomatic)
Those with higher Peace scores believe in an peaceful, or dovish, foreign policy. They tend to support low military spending, international aid, cooperation with other countries, and at high values, pacifism.

Liberty (State)
Those with higher Liberty scores believe in strong civil liberties. They tend to support democracy and oppose state intervention in personal lives. Note that this refers to civil liberties, not economic liberties.

Authority (State)
Those with higher Authority scores believe in strong state power. They tend to support state intervention in personal lives, government surveillance, and at high values, censorship or autocracy.

Tradition (Society)
Those with higher Tradition scores believe in traditional values and strict adherence to a moral code. Though not always, they are usually religious, and support the status quo or the status quo ante.

Progress (Society)
Those with higher Progress scores believe in social change and rationality. Though not always, they are usually secular or atheist, and support environmental action and scientific or technological research.
