Where do you stand on the political spectrum?

The political spectrum is used as a visualization of the different political stances. The centre is neutral, while the left side leans towards liberalism and socialism, and the right towards conservatism and capitalism. This quiz will give you a general idea where you stand on the political spectrum.

For each statement, decide whether you agree or disagree. If you have no opinion on the topic or so not understand it, choose "no opinion". It will not effect your left or right leaning, and instead put you in the middle of the spectrum.
