Thread Name: BS: Chesterton quotes
Subject: RE: BS: Chesterton quotes
I came in as:

Economic Left/Right: -7.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.10

Very much the same as John -I'm evidently a bit further left, and a shade less libertarian.

I kept on wanting to disagree with the question, as having excluded my view by the way it was phrased.

I suspect Chesterton would have had similar problems - for example coming up against a question like "Our race has many superior qualities, compared with other races" he'd have been likely to object that it needed to be accompanied by one saying "Other races have many superior qualities, compared with our race", with the option of agreeing with both of them.
