Political Spectrum Quiz

I boggled a bit at some of the questions. 13. Government should do something about the increasing violence in video games I read as 13. Government should do something about increasing the violence in video games, which amused me. Agree strongly! No.

50. A person's morality is between that person and God only. Government should not get involved was just weird. Obviously I don't agree with the first sentence as it stands, but I may or may not agree with the second sentence, depending on what they really mean. If they're talking about things which only affect that person, or other consenting adults, hell yes. If they're talking about things that hurt other people, or in some cases even affect them without their consent, hell no! So, neutral, then.

I've changed the way I answer surveys in the last couple of years, I think. I used to be so wussy - lots of answers in the "slightly agree" to "slightly disagree" range, and virtually no strong feelings. Now probably two thirds of my answers are "strongly agree" or "strongly disagree", even if the question is confusing - just decide what I think it means, and then take a stance. I don't think my opinions have changed, in general (although some have, and I hope others have been refined, at least) but I've got more confident about them. I guess that's good.
