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.

Shared religious beliefs should be an important part of our society.

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

Sometimes it's necessary to sack people who go on strike.

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

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

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

It is never necessary to break the law to make a legitimate point of view heard.

Dealing with nuisance crimes like petty vandalism makes serious crime less likely.

It is not necessary to ban narcotics to protect society from drug abuse.

For society to be cohesive, it is important that everyone shares a common language.

No crime, however serious, should be punished by death.

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

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

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

Sometimes international agreements should override national law.
