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.

Some people should not have access to the Internet.

Drug abuse is a problem primarily because of its effects on society, not its effects on drug users alone.

Our society needs more lawyers.

Marijuana is a more dangerous drug than alcohol.

Overall, young people benefit from compulsory military service.

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

We can't offer sanctuary to everyone who is fleeing persecution.

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

Nobody should be sacked for going on strike.

Governments will always be more powerful than large corporations.

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

Workers in the public sector shouldn't expect to earn as much as those doing similar jobs in private industry.

Society is more important than family.

There's no need to subsidise farmers if we can buy food more cheaply from abroad, even if that meant they went out of business.

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