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.

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

There is no place for organised religion in government.

Sometimes children shouldn't obey their parents.

Smokers should be able to receive medical care for smoking-related illnesses even if they still smoke.

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

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

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

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

Sometimes civilians are a legitimate military target.

Members of our society should be familiar with the history and traditions of our culture.

Art shouldn't receive government funding.

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

People who refuse to work should run the risk of going hungry.

Sometimes international agreements should override national law.

Laziness is not immoral.
