9/9 The Political Compass

Ok, so this week we're going to do an experiment. We're going to take the Political Compass test together, as a class, to see where we as a group fall on the political spectrum.

The Political Compass is a bi-directional graph. One axis measures where power in society should lie, from Libertarian (the Individual is more important than the State) to Authoritarian (the State is more important than the Individual).

The other axis measures how our economic life should be organized, from Left (collective economics) to Right (totally unregulated capitalist markets).

You can read the Political Compass explanation of their graph here.
