This is a very interesting and thought provoking website! Check out where you stand and where your favourite politician and party stand--I am in the same quadrant as the Dalai Lama!

I think its a very interesting way to look at politics. I found the comments on the American politicians fascinating--that Hilary Clinton would be run of the mill in the European politics, based on her views, but in the US, she is seen as an extreme left politician! Very interesting too how the politicians all cluster in the upper right hand quadrant--the difference between most of them seem to be in degrees, not in any real vast measures! Ah ha, I thought from my vantage point in the lower left hand quadrant, no wonder none of their messages really appeal to me!
I was wondering - where are all the hitlers, stalins and pol pots; surely we can't all be peace loving hippie chicks/dudes.
Unless the PhD process is yet another example of subversive government indoctrination designed to turn us all into malleable peons.
Can I change my answers?
Speaking as someone who is old enough to know people who were hippies... well not at the actual beginning, more at the tail end really, and some of them still are at heart I would say it is more a reaction against governments than for them. Once upon a time government etc. used to say 'i think we will go to war now' and the public would say, 'yay, lets do that, its our patriotic duty'. Now there is a lot more questioning, for example the thing about MPs expenses, that would have been accepted in the past as only right alomg with their right to tell the rest of us what to do and how to think, and the expectation that we will defer to their greater wisdom. Now of course the earliest hippies may be thinking about retiring in the nearish future. so watch out for a new wave of hippidom now they have a bit of time on their hands!
