Political Survey

In this survey, you are asked to give your opinion of a set of statements characterising political views. Please rate each statement on the scale given, which runs from "strongly disagree" to "strongly agree".


For statistical purposes, please tell us where you live:

The following are a set of propositions. Tell us whether you agree with them, as they would apply to the country where you live.

The government should raise revenue by taxing income rather than consumption.

Sometimes children shouldn't obey their parents.

Some technologies should never be used, whatever their benefits.

It's acceptable for a businessman to bribe a foreign official to complete a sale.

It's more important to punish criminals than to rehabilitate them.

To protect society from drug abuse, narcotics must be banned.

Everyone bears a moral responsibility for the actions of their government, even when they do not support them.

Sometimes civilians are a legitimate military target.

Overall, economic migrants are a drain on our country.

Marijuana is a more dangerous drug than alcohol.

It is never moral to break the law.

We should maintain the right to free expression, even if some people use it to create trouble.

Drivers shouldn't have to pay taxes to cover damage to the environment caused by motor transport, since that would price some people off the roads.

Religious faith needn't be based on the literal word of God.

Officials like public prosecutors should be chosen by the government, not directly elected.
