I'm a Moderate Socialist!

As both Marta and Magnus have done the Moral Politics test, I just had to do it as well. Just to find out that I'm a Moderate Socialist, close to Jimmy Carter (didn't know he was a socialist...) in American politics.

When I compare with the results of my comrades, Marta and I seem to have the same (moderate) view on moral issues, while Magnus gets quite extreme with his -5,5 on the Moral Order axis (did you mark the "Religion should not exist"-box, man?). On the other hand, me and Marta are seem to be more radical than Magnus on the Moral Rules axis. Magnus's "Moral Socialism" is described as follows:
"People in this category will tend to have have stronger opinions about loosening the moral order (gay rights, ecology, drug legalization,...) than about expanding collective initiatives (social programs, industry regulation...)."

So when Magnus brags about being to the left of Social Democracy (and being Green...) he ignores that this means that he is not as keen on economic justice as he is on moral liberalism. Seems quite latte left to me.

Would be nice to see some UK people doing this US test - just for fun...

I get pretty much the same but I should be voting for Kerry not Nader! I also guess I am a Democrat, and that makes me less left-wing than you... I think it must have been my answers on God and crime!

I get slightly different results every time; once i was a Trotskyist, now i seem to have calmed down. That God question seems to have an awful lot of baggage attached though!
