You read it right and they are also buds.

None of us needs a test to tell us where we stand, we're using a test to chart where we wind up in relation to each other, which you can see here. We got started when TexasToast commented about how many people think they occupy centerfield politically.

Most of our drop-ins, for example, assume we're all part of the vast right wing conspiracy, but when you look at the "map," it's obvious that they're wrong. If you're interested, for example, in knowing (in a general way) whether you're a lot more or less conservative than the other folks you've been talking to here, you can take the test, post your scores, and I'll add you to our chart.

"I guess I'm not following this -- are you claiming that the test does not identify any communists as being totalitarians? Because in real life, all of the communists turned out to be totalitarians.."

I'm not claiming anything about the test. I just figured that the ultimate far left statist would be a totalitarian communist, no? Personally, I'd put the historic experience in slightly different terms than you do: all of the successful communists turned out to be totalitarians.

I'd really love to add as many folks to the mix as possible. Maybe it would minimize the apoplexy if you were to tell yourself that you're just being asked whether you agree or disagree with a wide variety of political slogans, which, as we all know, don't always make perfect sense!

In any case, I just think it's interesting and fun, but YMMV.
