I'm not a fan of that test because of how biased the questions are.

This test has very ambiguous questions. For example, "Controlling inflation is more important than controlling unemployment." What if you do not believe in controlling either one? Also, "People are ultimately divided more by class than by nationality." Divided how? Those are just a couple of examples to show what I mean, but the bottom line is that the questions are poorly structured. Try this one: http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz

I seem to be drifting south east... I remember being closer to the centre a few years ago.

I've seen the results I expected to see, bitcoins are basically for people who don't like government control of most sorts Tongue

I'm happy I'm with my crowd! Cheesy

Whenever I used to take that test I always used to end up in the left bottom corner, you know, -10, -10. I won't bother taking it again, because I doubt my opinions have changed at all in regards to the questions asked.

The problem with the other question is that it assumes you want a government, which I don't. I think I once emailed the creators about this, and they said something like "yeah, we know, whatever". Or maybe that was the first mob. Anyway, anarchy! (Also, they owe us a living.)

(Also, 100 posts.)

State-less capitalist society = Mafia run society. Capitalist apologists who support such this, are not anarchists.

Damn those questions sucked, couldn't even finish the first page. Anyway, as a Stirnerite I'd probably be on the bottom right.

I wonder what makes you guys go to the bottom-right, and not to bottom-center.

Because the market shouldn't be regulated at all?

But doesn't that lead to monopoles and cartels? As we have it today e.g. with the central banks (not controlled by governments)?
IMHO already a P2P protocoll is something which no completely unregulated.

:O Shocking concept! (/me <3 sarcasm)

@Danube... why are you here if you want to regulate the market!? The entire point of bitcoin is unregulatibility!

I don't want to regulate the market. As far as I understand, would that draw you upwards in the diagram... The horizantal axis is the distribution of goods. Right: all to few, left: all to many.
Horizantol axis is the regulation via laws: Top: highly regulated, bottom: unregulated.
