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.

Companies should be free to pay their executives any salary, however large.

Our armed forces shouldn't intervene in other countries, even to stop genocide.

Children should always obey their parents.

Nobody should be sacked for going on strike.

Sometimes international agreements should override national law.

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

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

Sometimes interest rates should be raised to reduce inflation, even if doing so would cause a large number of job losses.

Sometimes civilians are a legitimate military target.

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

There is no place for organised religion in government.

There is no reason to stand up for the National Anthem.

Scientists bear no moral responsibility for how their discoveries are used.

It is never moral to break the law.

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.
