And these tests aren't really accurate...There are so many things that a person can believe, and forcing certain views under one particular banner is wrong.

"Because corporations cannot be trusted to voluntarily protect the environment, they require regulation." Why not "Because the government cannot be trusted to protect our freedoms, society must place limits of the powers of government."

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" is a fundamentally good idea. Why not.... "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."?


"A genuine free market requires restrictions on the ability of predator multinationals to create monopolies." Why not..... "Government interference in a market economy promotes the establishment of oligopolies."


On the whole, the surveys reads as if Bouville created it.

Surveys are an attempt at quantification. Of course, they will have margins of error. More to the point, this survey is only slightly better than this:

"Is it right that Bouville still beats his wife?" Strong Agree / Agree / Disagree / Strong Disagree.

Bouville isn't married. The question is bogus. Every pollster knows how to phrase questions to generate specific biases in answers... I view this survey no differently like that.

One last point: their charts (with world leaders) are a bit silly. Thatcher is too high. Friedman isn't low enough. Olmert is closer to the center -- same with W -- than represented.

Bottomline: the survey is largely junk.
