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.

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

Officials like public prosecutors should be directly elected rather than chosen by the government.

There is no such thing as an immoral sexual act between consenting adults.

Schools should do much more than just training people for the workforce.

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

Services like health care, education and social security should be provided by private enterprise, not by the government.

Nobody bears a moral responsibility for actions of their government if they don't support them.

Sometimes children shouldn't obey their parents.

Schools should not teach children anything which contradicts their parents' religious faith.

Beneficial medical research should always go ahead, however many animal experiments would be performed

Sometimes civilians are a legitimate military target.

Some crimes are so serious that the only proper punishment is the death penalty.

Members of society needn't be familiar with the history and traditions of our culture.

The only way for some workers to achieve fair pay is through collective bargaining.

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.
