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.

Drivers should pay enough tax to cover the cost of environmental damage caused by motor transport, even if that would price some people off the roads.

It doesn't matter whether the mix of minorities in public institutions reflects their numbers in the general population.

Some technologies should never be used, whatever their benefits.

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

The wealthy shouldn't pay a larger proportion of their income in tax than the poor.

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

Laziness is not immoral.

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.

Everyone should have access to the Internet.

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

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

There are some ethnic groups who can never be fully integrated into our society.

New roads and railways should be built by private companies, not the government.

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

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