I'd expect more "progress" from you Theymos on that test.  Shocked
Perhaps this test doesn't take crypto into account all that much. Wink

As iluvbitcoins said, I think that it's mainly due to some weird ideas of the quiz-author regarding progress vs tradition. In most of the questions related to this I gave neutral or weak answers because most of that stuff should be personal choice, not political. If you want to follow particularly stupid traditions that were invented centuries ago, then I think that this is stupid, but it's not any of my business. So for example in the question like "should children be taught traditions", IIRC I said "agree" to this because they should be taught whatever traditions their parents see fit.

In reality, the best and quickest way to achieve progress is through the unrestricted free market. So I should be 100% progress and maybe 65% tradition, but that doesn't work due to the way that they set up their quiz.

BTW, although all libertarians should be opposed to governments getting into individuals' personal business, different libertarians can have very different cultures. I've noticed that the sort of libertarians who made up the early Bitcoin community, including myself, are usually a more socially-conservative type of libertarian. Eg. while I think that people should be able to do what they want with themselves, I don't use and recommend against using euphoric drugs, I don't advocate completely discarding traditional values on a personal level, etc.

I think politiscales captures other sentiments of progress such as technology and development more accurately. I'd say it captures futurism better as it even has questions about nuclear power. Here are my results of the two tests side by side

I was born into a socialist family in a country with a fascist government, so, somehow, I used to consider myself socialist (utopic one).
But, to be honest, socialism has been truly misunderstood by the "socialists" rulers, and it doesn't fit into my mind anymore.
Recently I read a book called "Anarchy evolution", by  Greg Graffin (Bad religion singer, which also occurs to be a PhD investigator on biology and a teacher in the NY university), and I found myself, for the first time, being understood.
I truly recommend the book, this is an amazing insight related to evolution, religion, nature, and the current state of society.

I am a centrist because it is characterized by moderate views and compromises, based on a significant social base, reasonable actions not of a radical, explosive nature. Centrists in politics are called groups of political forces that are between the "left" and "right". Centrists get rid of the mistakes of these extreme political forces, have the wisdom of staging and resolving political issues with moderate means that do not lead to serious radical changes in society and state, party and other structures and institutions.

I have no idea what my political orientation is. I've been struggling for years to figure it out. Most people would probably think that makes me a centrist, but I'm unsure. I've been listening to social/political commentary from every angle that I can possible find and I still cannot pinpoint my orientation to any meaningful degree.

How do you define these things?
Did you click on the links in the first post or you are answering the question in the title? never allow the media or anyone to tell you who you are, you have to decide it on your own. never let them to categorize you into groups. this thread is here to profile people, never comment on them to reveal your self unless you already have a facebook profile lol.

Libertarian. My rights end where the rights of another person start
Sometimes i see myself agree with the conservatives on some issues other times its with the liberals and i believe its great so that i dont get tied down with a Party rather by the ideas and plans that their various candidates have for the country as a whole.

I still don't understand how conservatism and progressism can be placed on different ends of the line.

I think that the spirit of freedom of any action and the absence of a state in my life is my dream. Closer to all this libertarian ideology.

This quiz seems better than the shorter one. I wonder how they generate those flags.

Apparently, I'm not so "social" after all. While I wouldn't go as far as to call myself an absolute centrist, I do somewhat see myself being a left-leaning centrist in terms of economic policy.

I am a Libertarian. A lot of my political views were based on my economical knowledge and personal observations and then when I discovered libertarianism, it turned out I share all of their attitude and ideas. By the way, Libertarian Party is currently the second opposition power in Russia (if not count fake system opposition).

The most important thing is peace. If you do not have peace in your country, you cannot even vote. No matter what we choose, peace and economy are very important. I think I am more liberal for economical reasons. I hate centrists. You have to take a decision. Gambling in politic is not my sport. Extremists are also not sure about what they say. But again, no matter what we choose, we must look for peace and economy. The party that can provide both will get my vote. It is very important for people to know that. You just cannot have a political orientation for fun.
