    If the Government implements or allows the ten thousand dollar cash ban, negative interest rates or back bail ins, its time for a second revolution against the Government.

    People usually describe me as 'really conservative', but personally I always thought I was more towards the centre (but still slightly conservative), so this little test confirms what I thought.

    Ask them to sit the test as well.
    I feel the majority end up surprised with their results :grinning:

    It's funny, I selected most options that you would attribute to a right winger but ended up with a clear left wing result... I can imagine the same happened for others

    just goes to show that even a dodgy test can pick up on the right/left illusion

    I have a question

    Why do Left wing people have more food allergies than Right wing???

    Is it just me?

    Depends if you mean actual food allergies or believed food allergies. For example, many people now days (often lefties) think that they're allergic to gluten when they're actually just hypochondriacs.

    It's a bit of a flaw of all these tests. The questions are worded in a way that could mean two things. One being left and one being right. Unless you answer it in a way that the author intended you to answer it, then you're going to get a wrong result.

    Then there's confusion ones like:

    "A genuine free market requires restrictions on the ability of predator multinationals to create monopolies"

    This is hard to answer because you may say that there should be restrictions on predator multinationals, but restrictions prevent it from being a genuine free market so there's no real way to answer it.

    These tests, like your run of the mill IQ tests online are flawed of course. But also, many (most?) people have no idea on what "left" and "right" really mean.

    Cash ban law currently being reviewed by senate committee before being passed and introduced.



    Bail in law already passed in Australia.
