A lot of the statements are really stupid. Like this one, "There is now a worrying fusion of information and entertainment." What does my response say about my politics??

"Abstract art that doesn't represent anything shouldn't be considered art at all" is even stupider, though maybe more telling.

Anyway, I'm:
Economic Left/Right: -5.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.46

I think it's a comment about journalism and how things are reported. How much of what we hear through the media is truth and how much is sensationalism

What about Sesame Street? It's a fusion of information and entertainment. It doesn't worry me.

Though, I recognize your interpretation as correct.

i have take this this many times the two most recent came out like this:

The first i answered purely idealistically and thologically putting what i would love to be true and what i would do if i thought it might work. I was a moderate communist (yes all the way).

The second most recent time i answered the questions as if i was to become politician tomorrow (without the spin/sleeze and i did tell the truth) and i was a socialist. The americans are going to rip me apart, but seing the homelesness in that country i dont care.

I did this too, forgotten what results I got, but I do remember I'm apparently slightly more economically left-wing and slightly more libertarian than the Dalai Lama.

Now, I admit I'm not entirely conversant with the DL's whole political philosophy - he apparently wants the Chinese out of Tibet, free and fair elections, and so on and so on - but I'm not convinced that the political opinions of a man who thinks he's been alive before, and who has said he might choose not to be born again should be taken seriously at all. At any rate, he shouldn't be included in a graph featuring with actual politicians like Stalin, Hitler, Thatcher, Gandhi etc.

And the fact that Richard Gere is a fan of his, just reduces the DL's credibility further.

thats interesting. I agree with your views on it (im assuming u said they should be allowed to reproduce). However did not find the question offensive at all, people are allowed their views on it. (this is from experience not just me blabbing away from my moral high horse).
