WHO SHOULD DECIDE ???
Here's a new version of the popular "Nolan Chart," also known as the "World's Smallest Political Quiz".  David Boaz of the Cato Institute (who popularized this "who should decide" approach, thinks it's more appropriate than the other ones, and helps people think better, with a wider perspective.

It's just a quick self-help guide; its purpose is only to help you find out for yourself where you stand on the real political spectrum, as opposed to the ancient "left-right" political spectrum which was developed when the world was still feudal, made up of only "givers" and "takers," or "taxees" and "taxers".  That old "left-right" spectrum was really only good for medieval societies, when there was mostly compulsion (forced transactions or by-permission-only transactions), long before there was any large entrepreneurial, or "middle", class which engages in trade (mutually-agreed-upon transactions), which we enjoy today.

Nowadays when that ancient "left-right" spectrum is used, most people try to put fascists on the "right" and socialists on the "left" (as if they trampled peoples' lives any differently), and then trap you into swallowing the bizarre and evil notion that freedom is in between them, as  some kind of fuzzy "compromise" between two allegedly "opposite" totalitarian extremes!  How ridiculous can you get?

It should be emphasized that your answers should not..reflect your opinions on the topics themselves, but rather your opinion, simply, of  who should make the decisions..on them.

The quiz is in two parts; the first ten questions concern personal freedoms, and the second ten concern economic freedoms.
On each issue in the tables below, place a mark in the column for who you think should make the decision for that issue.  Then, in the "score" column, give yourself 10 points if you think YOU should decide, 0 points if you think government should decide, and 5 points if you are unsure.  Then add up the score columns, and put a dot on this diamond chart where the two totals meet.  That's where YOU are right now!  Have fun!
