    You Are 92% Capitalist, 8% Socialist

    You're a capitalist pig - and proud of it.
    You believe that business makes the world great...
    And you'd never be ashamed of being rich!

    This test does not measure a difference between socialism and capitalism. Nothing is asked about ownership of means of production, which is essence of socialism. It must have been created by some neo-liberals. It measures if you support changes in capitalist systems inspired by socialist, liberal and christian-democratic ideologies and I support them.
    Am I right or am I wrong?

    I am lucky, my country is socialist also the test is wrong on a number of statements, this one is one of the worst:

    "Over the course of the 20th century, countries with free market economies truly prevailed."

    The world have never really had free markets, and the economies that prevailed did so due to advantages in technology, then when they had the advantage they imposed Free trade on the less developed markets using military might and economic loans given to ignorant political leaders, so they would be able to overtake them, this is especially true of the British post-industrial revolution in relations to India and China.

    In a free market economy, the country with the lowest wages and most advanced technology would be leaders, not a world i want to live in..
    I once tried thinking for an entire day, but I found it less valuable than one moment of study. I once tried standing up on my toes to see far out in the distance, but I found that I could see much farther by climbing to a high place.

    You see a lot of injustice in the world, and you'd like to see it fixed.
    As far as you're concerned, all the wrong people have the power.
    You're strongly in favor of the redistribution of wealth - and more protection for the average person.
    I'd say it's somewhat accurate in relation to my beliefs but the questions/statements weren't accurate, diverse or in depth enough to give you a truly good idea of where you fall along the line beween capitalism and socialism. Personally, I'd describe myself as 30% Capitalist and 70% Socialist.

    I came to say exactly this.

    The test is obviously made by an American.
    And I guess he's a Republican who thinks Obama is socialist.


    This is my score:
    You Are 4% Capitalist, 96% Socialist
    You see a lot of injustice in the world, and you'd like to see it fixed.

    Bullshit! Socialism has nothing to do with the "redistribution of wealth". It's all about the ownership of the means of production. There is no "wealth" in a socialist country.


    Btw, you'll see my profile says I'm "democratic socialist". Take it as a spinoff of Chersteron's Distributionism.

    This quiz is clearly biased

    Capitalist "pig"... is a century old epithet, search it in google.

    But the wonder of this is that I am not a Socialist...

    The Europeans (especially Northern Europeans) on this forum will find that they are more Socialist than Capitalist, the new worlders (especially 'White' Americans/'White' South Americans) will find that they are more Capitalist than Socialist.

    I wonder if this distinction might be due to history, does the fact that (barring troublesome recent immigration) Northern European countries are often small and homogenous mean that they are more willing to be equal with their ethnic brethren also reflect on New World countries (distinction between richer white and non-white populations) their Capitalist mentality whereby a White member of the upper class is less happy to pay taxes to support a black/native child going to school? Obviously economics transcends just these factors alone, but it does bring questions of where race lies within economics, and how racial history interacts with modern perceptions in society.

    People you should try this one: http://www.politicalquiz.net

    My results:

    Conservatives tend to favor economic freedom, but frequently support laws to restrict personal behavior that violates "traditional values." They oppose excessive government control of business, while endorsing government action to defend morality and the traditional family structure. Conservatives usually support a strong military, oppose bureaucracy and high taxes, favor a free-market economy, and endorse strong law enforcement.

    I don't like the sort of questions that have been put there,too much positivity about Capitalism. I also like to add that this is a more of an economical stance.
