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.

Workers in the public sector should be paid as much as those doing similar jobs in private industry.

Our society needs more lawyers.

Class distinctions should exist.

Governments will always be more powerful than large corporations.

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

Our nation has a glorious history.

Aggressive foreign policies will not put a stop to international terrorism.

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

Some people should not have access to the Internet.

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

Schools should concentrate on training people for the workforce.

It's more important that we elect parties in exact proportion to their support than that we each have individual local representatives.

Anybody who wants top-quality health care should expect to have to pay for it.

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