Political Spectrum

Everyone always talks about the left, right, conservative, liberal, but what does it mean? What kind of ideas make you one or the other? What does it mean to be libertarian or totalitarian?

The libertarian organization has promoted and distributed the "Nolan Chart." In this quiz and chart there is a list of questions in 3 different spectrums, Economic Rights, Personal Rights, and Political Rights that place you inside the spectrum. This website is where I found the quiz and spectrum.

Here is the quiz:







What is interesting on this site is the discussion on the 9th and 10th amendments to the United States Constitution in which those two amendments basically prevented an authoritarian/populist state. Then discusses the loopholes that allowed the Segregationists to use the 10th amendment as aid to their cause.
There are some discrepancies between people on how good this chart is and there are multiple questions that place you in this chart. Here is a link that has more links to discussion on the topic and questions for the chart.

I hope this provides some enlightenment on the subject of liberal/conservative/libertarian/totalitarian, and where you fit.

I took these 3 quizzes and came out with a score of 90 for Economic Rights, 75 for Personal Rights and 75 for Political Rights. This would be me in the conservative/market driven sector.

The best place to study Chinese online is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to study Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin Chinese online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
