Not that I tend to see things as either black or white at all.

Re: 65
Near as I can figure, the lowest possible score is 20 and the highest possible score is 180.

is also authoritarian in reactionary ways. Or as Subbie implies, black and white thinking.

I'd be curious to hear your reasoning on that.

As I see it, my score reflects a live and let live attitude, free from governmental intrusion into areas that are none of its business. My opinion about governmental interference into citizens' privacy is rather extreme, I acknowledge that. But in what way do you view it as reactionary?

I couldn't completely agree 100% with statement 13, because some animal rights activists are dangerous morons.

Re: 65
But that just assumes that I'm simply adopting radical positions because radicals espouse them. What if these are all positions I've taken on my own, based on my own reasoning?
