Which Political Category are You Part of?

Political ideologies come in a seemingly infinite variety of shapes and sizes. Sometimes it can be difficult to figure out exactly what your views line up with. That is why this exists.

This quiz was made in order to sort people who take it into one of six basic political categories: conservatism, progressivism, classical liberalism, socialism, nationalism, and anarchism. Hopefully, this will help clarify some things to those who take it.
