Gene Expression

Not so dead past

Many people have been revisiting old posts so that new readers could get a “taste” of their blog. Below are some representative posts which span my varied interests….

Daughter of the Enlightenment, Journey of Men, The Germanization of the liberal Idea, 8th grade math for the rest of us, Gene expression might matter, Slow and diverse food, Up to medievalism, Theological incorrectness, The madrassa & me, Way of the Hui, Taste & behavior genetics, Dissolving the dominance of dominance , Beyond the Punnett Square, part n, Extremism in defense of precision is no vice and The gods of the cognitive scientists.

I also mentioned to Chris Mims today that I suspect I’m the most “right wing” of the Science Blogs recruits, and I decided to take a Political Compass test, which I do about once a year, and my results were predictable:

Economic Left/Right: 2.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.67

You can see where I map here. Though my answers have shifted over the years I always seem to end up to be a mild Right libertarian. But though the vector is pretty uniform, I have to say that its magnitude has been decreasing over the years as I have lost interest in politics.

    Razib, I’d say you’re the most economically conservative of any of us (sort of what the rupublican party should be in my view — I can understand disagree on economic issues, but I have no idea how anyone can differ on the social issues). I took the test as scored a -6.0 in both economic and social issues (damn the free market!). I wonder if Myers scores a -10.0 on both?

    You are very close to me on the political spectrum. Maybe a tiny bit less extreme, but close. By the way, I just added this new version of GNXP to the links list on my own blog, The Libertarian Scientist.

    thanks for adding the link! i will make sure to add you to my blogrolls soon btw, you know how busy things get. keep reading both blogs though, i am going to have some interesting “10 questions” on the other one in the near future 🙂

    as for my political orientation, my vector has stayed about the same over the years, but the magnitude has been declining.
