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.

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

The wealthy should pay a larger proportion of their income in tax than the poor.

Drivers should pay enough tax to cover the cost of environmental damage caused by motor transport, even if that would price some people off the roads.

Some people should not have access to the Internet.

We should make use of any technology, if it benefits us.

Sometimes the only way to make a legitimate point of view heard is to break the law.

Nobody should go hungry, even if they refuse to work.

Trial by jury shouldn't always be available by right.

Breaking the law is not always immoral.

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

Aggressive foreign policies can put a stop to international terrorism.

We don't need religious faith to have a sense of right and wrong.

The government should subsidise farmers so that they stay in business, even if it would be cheaper to buy food from abroad.

Sometimes schools should teach children things which contradict their parents' religious faith.

Everyone should stand up for the National Anthem.
