Liberal test

Do you want a better education? Do you want to travel throughout Europe? Are you an opponent of the globalization, or rather its defender? Politics seems to you an annoying scuffle of interests? Politics is lost of time or one of the most important human activities? You think that society is sustained through the observance of order and fulfillment of social obligations? Or, you rather think that society is a result of a contract, concluded by free individuals, in order to protect their rights? ... Questions are numerous!

Our test, without being tendentious, gives you an opportunity to assess quickly where you stand in the political spectrum and to learn more about the ideas, you believe in. Our aim is to get the visitor of our site Ė no matter of their political positions Ė closer to the ideas of Liberalism.

Our liberal test is built upon the ďPolitical CompassĒ test, based on the so-called ďCultural TheoryĒ, developed by the British anthropologist Mary Douglas. It is aimed predominantly at the young people, who still have not clearly defined their civil and political preferences. That is why the style of the explanation is informal.
