Political Compass #2
Posted on December 16th, 2015
In which we analyze the popular “political compass" quiz.
“I’d always support my country, whether it was right or wrong."
This one is a lot more straightforward than the last. We can argue about what “support" entails, but I expect that such an understanding would be factored in to the strength of the agreement or disagreement.
How It Should Count
Agreeing should be a right shift. It shows a preference for tradition, duty, honor, etc. that are seen as more right values.
It’s tempting to think that agreeing should be an authoritarian shift, but I’m not sure that is fair. This is asking about your relationship with your country, regardless of whether that country is more libertarian or authoritarian. What do you think?
