I think the quiz is misleading. My “8% socialist” probably comes from the fact that I am not laissez-faire on drugs and prostitution. I do not characterize those things as “capitalist” issues — they are Libertarian issues. I’m not a Libertarian.

Odd that they would classify “liberal” (or libertarian) approaches to drug legalization and prostitution as “socialist” when those who sell such goods (which can be “manufactured” at home) would stand to make legal capitalist profit if there were legalized.

As the USSR fell apart, pornography became more available. So their socialist system didn’t tolerate these vices.

And I fail to see why fast food and tobacco companies should be taken to task over the “impact” of their products when the grain heavy food pyramid also is unhealthy if you aren’t needing a processed carb heavy “active” diet. Certainly is not balanced (fruits and vegetables would be a better “base”).
