Re: Morality Test Results.
Based on your answers to the previous questions, your overall score on a conservative/liberal dimension of moral attitudes--compared with the general population--puts your percentile at 68, with the 99th percentile indicating the most liberal possible rating. Another way of explaining this is to say that out of 100 randomly-selected people, you will most likely be more liberal than 68 of them.
Interesting test. I personally found it rather limited, and having more to do with political outlook then moral outlook. Morally i would be a libereterian, or even borderline anarchist. However when it comes to practical social and govermental structure i think a socialism that isnt extreme, and right leaning towards capitalism is best. Something like we see in Denmark or Norway, would work best.
