Nice idea, though, as with all such tests, some questions don't deserve a straight answer. The questions are also very much in an American mould - who would ever debate the rights and wrongs of pornography in Germany or France (and is it really libertarian to be pro-porn - many a prominent feminist in Western Europe would say no)?

One problem with Mr. Torn's resolution is that I would be left alone in my quadrant. May I visit you? I might need a visa, although given the fact that you are not authoritarian, you will be obliged to grant political asylum even to Sylvio Berlusconi... To give away the result: left/ right on economic questions: + 2.38 (I would have expected more, as everyone labels me a neoliberal); libertarianism: - 4.21 (again, a surprise...)

Wigan – As far as I can see you will not be too far away from the wall separating you from me and my new friends Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama in the lower left corner, so we would be happy to do what we can assist in your escape (although it seems that Nelson does not number escapology among his many talents, having spent 18 years on Robben Island). Nevertheless, we will do what we can to have you across for visits – especially since life in our "hippy quadrant" will be so much more pleasant than the libertarian capitalist corner to which your responses have consigned you. Please bring consumer durables.

Well I'm not that sure whether it will be that much more pleasurable in your quadrant. We (or rather I, as it seems that I am one of the few who deserve being where I've been assigned to) will at least have the privilege to enjoy all sorts of amenities. I'll be sure to bring along a pasalubong or two when I come around.

Thanks for the information! The questions are also very much in an American mould - who would ever debate the rights and wrongs of pornography in Germany or France (and is it really libertarian to be pro-porn - many a prominent feminist in Western Europe would say no)?
