    Take this test to find if you lean politically more towards Hitler than Ghandi.

    Whatever THAT means...Too many gray area questions with only black and white answers as a choice.

    Cool. I've mentioned the Political Compass before, and back in 2003 at HawaiiStories. Sure it's inexact and it's hard to be so absolute in answers that are certainly much more complex... but it's an interesting way to visualize one's orientation beyond the traditional left-right axis.

    My answers in 2003 were Economic Left/Right -3.75, Authoritarian/Libertarian -4.15. I might re-take it to see if I've shifted much since then.

    As I proposed earlier, if we get enough coordinates, we could create a statistical graph that could show just how the members of HawaiiThreads.com are distributed. Surely there'll be lots of clusters, but the outliers are just as interesting!

    There are no leaders anywhere near these parameters - no wonder I'm generally displeased with politics and governments of all stripes.

    Nah, he's Buddhist. If he had a dot on top, he'd be Hindu.

    Wink Re: Take the Political Compass Test

    Looks like I’m somewhere between Ghandi and Gerhard Schröeder. Closer to Ghandi, though. So does that make me a moderate Democrat? If so, I’ve been saying that all along. I still don’t feel Ed Case has a message I can relate to.

    Pretty darn close to my old pal, The Dalai Lama, too. (Oh, hello there, Mahi Waina, nice to see you here. Look, there's WindwardOahuRN, right next door. Tikiyaki's just across the street. I like the neighborhood.)

    Pardon the monstrous and somewhat clunky graph, but this is what I had in mind above. Always interesting to see things distilled visually. Interesting that there's more variation on the economic scale (well, in that we have at least a few right of zero), but on the social scale, all of us skew libertarian.

    Smoke some if you brought it.
    Open up your own restaurant, and cater to smokers exclusively.
    CCR's are dreamed up by people who are too nosy about my business.
    I don't need special treatment devised by the gov't because of my (race/economic status/circumstance).
    I can ALWAYS make it on my own.
    Everybody makes choices. Some do it better than others.
    Don't tread on me.

    Cool Graph. I'm closest to the bullseye. Do I win anything?
