Week 8 Discussion: Political Compass Results
Political Compass Results
I think my results are accurate and according to my expectation. My results are economic Left/Right is -3.0 and Social Libertarian/Authoritarian is -2.51. According to my results, I belong to communist group. According to the Magstadt, “Authoritarians rulers generally do not respect individual rights when these rights interfere with the power or policy goals of the states” (Magstadt, 2017, p 105).
I found the political compass test very accurate and true. It helps me to recognized my political affliction. The left side shows that the free marketplace and in support of fiscal rule and also the person belongs to this side is against the abortion, divorce or you can say the social issues. According to the results, the essence of authoritarian behavior is in the structure of character rooted in the core of the personality and is determinant of their mentality and behavior. We can find authoritarian personalities among revolutionaries or progressives as well as among conservatives. That is to say: the danger of authoritarianism and abuse of power, with different degrees and nuances, permanently lurks in any political system (Gandhi, & Przeworski, 2007).
Thus, my authoritarian character is at the service of the profound needs of these people and they fulfill an essential function for the maintenance of their psychic integration and their personal identity. A culture that surges the control of the state and reduces that of the specific is left-wing, henceforth why ideas such as collectivism is indorsed inside left-wing government. Liberalism trusts in equal rights for the people in the government.
This test helps me to understand the idea of politics in the government. Each right and left indicates something which is important for politics. The historical examples are a sample of the obstinacy of these personalities. The characters of this nature end up without letting go of their prejudiced spirit.
