    I don’t need the test, I can already tell you I’m somewhere in the green square.

    I rather like this one, it's more of a general less US centric test: https://www.politiscales.party
    It looks like they haven't updated their site certificate, so just heads up.

    Anyway, my results for that:

    And between these three tests, we should get a solid idea of where most of us stand.

    The badge at the bottom is for pragmatism.

    Here's what appears to be all the badges for politiscales:

    It looks like there's a single question for each one that, when agreed with, will give the badge. Anarchist and Consipracist are only awarded with the "strongly agree" option.

    Mine's conspiracist because when it asked if I believed a small number of people influenced the masses I said yes. It's not a conspiracy to say that the super wealthy influence a great deal of global policy, but ah well.

    "Question 76 of 117 It is a small group that consciously and secretly controls the world."

    I think the key word there is secretly.

    Maybe consciously as well. The super-wealthy have a shit-ton of influence, but it's not exactly a secret, and I doubt many of them are sitting around thinking "I control the world along with the other billionaires." Probably more along the lines of "just a few more trillion and I can control everything!"

    That's one of the problems with these kinds of quizzes. Sometimes the questions are open enough that an assumption about the wording needs to be made, people will make different assumptions, and the test doesn't take the assumptions into account.

    Carlin said it best, in that the super rich don't have to get together and plan everything like some great cabal, they happen to already share the same class interests. They're super wealthy, they want to stay super wealthy, and will work with other super wealthy people who share the same basic class interests.

    As for the secret part, you're right there is no secret to it. It's rather right out in the open. Still, super wealthy people do work in secret when it comes to how they acquire much of their capital. Plenty of secrets do exist.

    given how you reduce most things to a binary anyways, you should've felt okay with this...

    which is why you remind me of those clowns that walk around wearing "81 Support/Known Associate" gear...

    y'all figure that if you suck up enough, you'll be acknowledged or something (I never could understand the motive to branding one's self as a wanna be, but...)

    This one is really showing it's age - looks like they haven't updated the questions since the Bush era. But still:

    Unrelated, but I read this in Gilbert Gottfried's voice.

    fits with the suggestion that the "centre" has drifted rightward...
