In this episode, the first in a mini-series of three, I will be taking a 70 question long political spectrum test in an effort to further explore the language of politics both in general and specifically in America today. Given some of my edge-case beliefs it should be an interesting experiment, especially when we get to compare the results.The first test will be 8values which, according to their website, is a political quiz that attempts to assign percentages for eight different political values. Those 8 values being distributed across 4 spectrums (economic, diplomatic, state & society) with the independent axes representing the “8 values” (equality vs markets, nation vs globe, liberty vs authority & tradition vs progress) respectively.For a cheater’s look at my results you can see them here or here.
